About

MUDPIX MAGAZINE is outdoor photography by David Thrift, a photographer and digital photo artist residing in East Alabama.

MUDPIX.COM is the landing spot on the internet where you can enjoy David’s photography and artwork, and purchase his original photography in the form of self published digital (pdf) magazines designed for viewing on devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers. These magazines are offered on site as free downloads for previewing. The preview issues contain watermarks. Premium issues are in planning for sale on Gumroad in the near future.

David’s photography is very informal and he’s always looking for surprising photo opportunities. His primary locations for camera work in the outdoors include the backwaters of West Point Lake which covers land across East Alabama in Chambers County, and West Georgia in Troup County, Lake Harding in Lee County Alabama, and Lake Martin in Tallapoosa County Alabama.

All photographs and photographic material on this website (unless otherwise noted) is the intellectual property of David Thrift, including his self published magazine, called MUDPIX MAGAZINE.

David enjoys photographing not only nature shots, but also people as an observer, and sometimes traffic, and although he has been asked occasionally to photograph weddings, and family portraits, he prefers simply connecting with nature and bringing the outdoor scenery he enjoys to the indoors for people to enjoy in the comfort of their homes through his candid and informal photography. His MUDPIX MAGAZINE is a journal of his photographic adventures.

On The Subject Of Fishing:

“With all the time I spend outdoors around the lakes, I’ve often been asked if I enjoy fishing. The answer is both yes and no… Yes in that when I was younger (as in a kid and teen years) I thought it was fun). No in that I really don’t do it these days in my adult years. Mostly I enjoy following people that do either out in the wild hanging out with someone, watching someone fish, or checking them out on the internet. When I’m outdoors around the lake, my full interest is in working with my camera. I simply don’t have time to waste holding a fishing pole all day. It’s kind of like watching sports. I really don’t waste a lot of time doing that either. I love my camera and art work which are the things that connect me to being active and staying productive in life outside of my day job.” – David Thrift Written: Saturday, October 19th, 2019.

It’s What We Do:

In every second there is a photograph waiting to happen.

Photographs are everywhere. It is the call of photographers to see and capture those moments.

We live in an era where cameras are everywhere and in all kinds of electronic devices. It shouldn’t surprise anyone to see someone with a camera shooting and capturing life.

Don’t want your photo taken in a public place? Don’t go to public places. Someone there most likely has a camera, and they are most likely going to use it.

This Website Is Growing!

This month in November 2019, a lot of work is going on to expand content for you to enjoy. While I’m certainly focused on completing the first issue of MUDPIX MAGAZINE and getting it available for sale, I’m also adding lots of new pages to the website. Some of the pages are relevant only to this website’s content specifically, and other pages are basically link lists providing access to some of my favorite articles from favorite websites I like to explore personally. In this process of adding new pages, I’ve also been working on cleaning up (moving) some miscellaneous content around the website to make it easier when browsing on mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Head over to the Updates page to see what all the new pages are that have been added recently. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the next few months. There’s bound to be tons of pages added for you to check out.
