Through the eyes of Nelson photographer Dave Gluns

Many of the most popular photographs of Nelson have been taken by photographer Dave Gluns who's work is on display at the library.

The photographs of David R. Gluns are familiar to some: his work appears on many local websites and tourism brochures, and he’s the feature photographer for the coffee table book Nelson, British Columbia. Now, a selection of some of his finest work is on display at the Nelson Public Library.

Dave Gluns travels everywhere with an inspired eye, consummate skill and a good camera — or two or three. It’s paid off: his photographs have appeared in a number of national and international magazines including Beautiful British Columbia, Western Living, Bike, Westworld, Cycle Canada, B.C. Women, Northwest Travel, Golf West, Sunset, Western Living, Canoe and Kayak, and Explore. His client list includes municipalities, financial institutions, colleges, corporations and provincial ministries.

Gluns’ images have also appeared in several books, including British Columbia (Learner Publications), Over Beautiful British Columbia: An Aerial Adventure (BBCM Publication),  Nelson, British Columbia and The West Kootenay in Photographs (Ward Creek Press).

An avid skier, hiker, and outdoorsman, Gluns also leads treks in Nepal, his camera always close by. In support of education opportunities for Nepalese children, he has held fundraising slideshows of his Nepal images. Gluns is also a fixed-wing pilot and often works in conjunction with Nelson Mountain Air doing aerial photography.

Recently, Gluns retired from his day job as a forest hydrologist and now devotes more time to his “other work.”
