Some photographers sell prints. I sell my whole camera rolls in pdf photo ebooks to give you the full experience of my day trips out to West Point Lake to the see the scenery.


Hi, my name is David Thrift, and this is my official website, which serves as the hub for all of my creative works on the internet. I reside in Southeast Alabama, and I am a outdoor photographer who loves to photograph West Point Lake, and Lake Harding in Alabama and Georgia. I create, self-publish, and sell photo ebooks using my photography. My photo ebooks are available as either free versions which contain watermarked photos with my logo, or as premium versions which do not contain watermarks that you can purchase in my MUDPIX OUTDOORS PHOTO EBOOKS store on Gumroad.

Ebook Availability: Not all ebooks will be available as free, and it’s the same with premium versions. Some ebooks may be either just free, or available with purchase only. Please read descriptions on each ebook for availability.

I also produce my own line of hand-knit, and crocheted hats (aka beanies) for men, and others. You can find all of the hats I have available in my DudeCapz Beanie Store on Storenvy. So thank you for dropping by my website. See my bio information further down the page for more details about my creations, and my outdoor photography.

To add a little personal connection to this website, I’ve launched a new mini-journal called Today With David. Visit this link to see how my day is going that you may not find written on my social network pages, and get updates about my creative process and production of my art, photography, and photo ebooks. Note: Despite the title, I don’t always write every single day. Sometimes I forget, but I always try to come back with something of interest.


Digital abstract art painted in Artrage on Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus. Completed on Monday, January 10th, 2022 @ 2:59 AM CST. This is my first digital abstract art digitally hand painted by me in 2022. I’m currently working on a derivative art image from the same reference image with larger brush strokes. I am planning a total of 9 (possibly 10) derivatives in this series to come. Each one will be painted with a larger brush stroke size than the last one. I want to see how this changes and creates new artworks from one reference image. Check back soon for the 2nd art image when I finish it. I will begin a new blog series for my art soon. I have to figure out which website I’m going to do that on.


Below you will find my latest video from my MUDPIX OUTDOORS YouTube Channel.

DESCRIPTION: Watching a train pass by in Salem, Alabama on Saturday, January 1st, 2022 @ 4:27 PM CST. This is the first full train I’ve been able to film in daylight since I first started recording trains in December 2021. I was happy to be near the tracks when I heard the train coming so that I could get somewhere to record the whole train. I found a spot that was perfect to sit on as the train rolled by where I could record this video. I will try to get some more videos like this when I can.


I have more Twitter handles than I know what to do with sometimes, but each one has a purpose related to the various projects I’m working on. Twitter is my favorite social network to collaborate on, which contributes to why I have so many accounts.

  • @KALEIDOLOVE – This is primarily for my kaleidoscope art. – [link]
  • @LINKSURFUSA – This is for a project that is currently in “idea phase”. I’ve got some ideas I’d like to do with this, but haven’t really put anything definite on paper yet. – [link]
  • @MRDTHRIFT – This is my personal Twitter page where I’m bound to post about anything I’m working on with all of my projects. – [link]

  • PHOTOGRAPHY & HANDMADE THINGS BY DAVID – This is a “anything goes” blog I set up on Tumblr where I promote my art, photography, and hand-crafted items I’m selling, as well as other content I wouldn’t normally post on my main websites. It’s mainly craft related content currently, and hasn’t been updated since November 2021. I will get back to it as time permits. – [link]

New Hobbies & Collections Photo Journal

My new publication called Hobbies & Collections will give you an up to date look at what is keeping me busy the most. Click here to read it on Issuu. This is supposed to be frequently updated, but I haven’t had time to do that in awhile. I will get back to working on this journal as soon as possible. I will also move it off of the Issuu platform and make it available for download only here on my website. Stay tuned.

SPOTIFY LIFE – My Spotify listening journal is being put together so that I can publish it here on site. Look for it soon. – UPDATE – I’ve misplaced my list. This is on hiatus until I can find it and edit for publishing.
