Rafters with Last Descents River Expeditions drift through the agrarian lower section of the Salween River in Yunnan, China.


David Spiegel


David grew up on the rivers of the Pacific Northwest. In college he picked up a camera and began documenting his travels to rivers in the Northwest, the Rocky Mountains, and around the globe. Over time, David’s focus shifted from purely action-based media to the intersection of adventure sports and conservation. Whether it’s a day of Class V creeking or a mellow multi-day rafting trip in the desert, David has his camera in his drybag to capture the intense, meaningful, and beautiful moments.
