David Antony Reid
This multi award winning, original, contemporary artist, originally from Perthshire, trained and lives in London. There is a strong global clientele for his photography. He also creates bespoke guitars, being a regular exhibitor of the highly reputable “Montreal Guitar Show”, “The London Acoustic Guitar Show” and the huge, “Healdsburg Guitar Festival” of California. David is credited with inventing three modern innovations for steel strung acoustic guitar. In 2012 he was awarded “Alumnus Of The Year” by “Perth University” – presented to him by no less than “HRH The Princess Royal”. David received “The Cup For Academic Achievement” for his work with mathematics and physics – despite only just being diagnosed as a dyslexic who could not read, write, or work mathematics. Much of what David learned there has been applied to the scientific side of his instruments’ designs, but his ability to construct a story contributed massively to his ability to understand modern photography.
