This month’s Uniquely Breckenridge features photographer and gallery owner David Pfau. Owner of Breckenridge Photographics, David’s gallery is located in the heart of Breckenridge’s Main Street and just a short walk to the base of Breckenridge Mountain’s Quicksilver Chair.

David came to Breckenridge in 1987 after graduating from the Journalism school at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
