Laurels Ranch

David K. Langford loves the Texas Hill Country land that his family has cherished for five generations. His passion for the land has informed his career as a professional photographer, and he has been a tireless advocate for working lands conservation and private property rights his entire adult life.

He was among a small group of private landowners who got their heads together in the 1980s to form the Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) to raise the profile of private land issues in Texas. He served as Executive Vice President of the organization until late 2001 and shepherded the organization as it became one of the leading voices for private landowners in Texas. At one point in his TWA career, he was also one of the loudest critics of conservation easements.
