Dave Etchells Publisher/Editor in Chief
Dave Etchells is the founder, Publisher, and Editor in Chief of Imaging Resource. A photographer since childhood, he spent many happy hours sloshing developing chemicals in his parent's basement – which perhaps explains his stunted social development at the time. Now that photo imaging no longer has to be done in smelly dark places, his beautiful wife Marti of more than 26 years gets to see him with some regularity, although he's still prone to slipping down to the basement to tinker at woodworking and odd electronic circuits when she's not looking. Marti and Dave have two children Arthur and Chris, now grown into young men. Arthur is currently the Director of Development at IR, while Chris is in pre-med studies at the University of Georgia and helps occasionally on the site as well. Marti and Dave also share their home with Charlotte the Wonder Dog, who can be seen performing in many of the sample videos on IR as our ISO-standard Australian Shepherd Frisbee Fetcher. Between Marti, Arthur, Chris, Charlotte, and Imaging Resource, Dave sincerely counts his blessings every day.
