Bio

David Griffiths' naval career spanned 32 years and 5 months, during which, he photographed presidents, astronauts, pilots, ships, planes, events, and lots of people doing lots of things. He became addicted to being where the action is. He attended: Basic Photography School in 1954, Advanced Photography in 1966, Photographic Statistical and Chemical Quality Control School in 1970, Motion Picture School in 1977, Photographic Equipment Repair School in 1978, and The Robin Perry Creative Color Workshop in 1985. His favorite medal is the Humanitarian Medal, which he earned during the evacuation of Saigon. He received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Occupational Education with an emphasis in photography from Southern Illinois University just before retiring from the Navy. David Griffiths used the "G.I. Bill" to obtain a Master's in Vocational Education, and went to work for the Chief of Naval Education and Training as an Instructional Systems Specialist. For the next fifteen years, he developed Training Task Inventories, monitored contracts for computer-based training, and assisted chief and senior chief petty officers in developing nonresident training courses. It was a privilege to work with men and women of their caliber. It was while helping sailors write their training manuals that David realized how easy it was to write and publish a book if you didn't have to go through the traditional gate keepers. It inspired him to write his first book, CBT Design. It was used as a textbook by Humber College. Later, David Griffiths wrote, "The Misadventures of Russell Quigley," a hilarious collection of sea stories woven into the fabric of Russell's life as a Navy photographer.
