About Me

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

READ THIS: THIS IS MY JOB, MY ONLY JOB.

NOT CURRENTLY DOING TFP
My rates are low and I deliver. I'd love to shoot everyone for trade but I have bills and rent like everyone else and there is nothing I need for my portfolio right now.

My name is David C. Dawson and I am a photographer. Wow, that sounds like an introduction during a twelve step program meeting but I guess its appropriate. I am addicted to photography.

I went to Mass Art way back in the late eighties for illustration and graphic design earning a BFA in Communication Arts. Wound up starting a rock magazine called Lollipop and did everything from page layout to ad design, designed the logo and the website. We made 70 issues over the course of 14 years and finally decided that for us, print was dead. During the last few years of the magazine I picked up a camera to shoot images I needed for the issue and caught the photo bug.

I shot a bunch of fashion for the magazine and quickly started to accumulate gear. I owe a lot to a few very trusting and patient models in the early days who were kind enough to shoot with me as I was getting over the intitial learning curve.

A couple years ago I met a guy who built a studio in Manchester, NH and moved up to shoot cars and models.

The car shooting business was a bust and I moved on and decided to stay in Manchester and shoot at SOPHA, the Studio of Photographic Arts.

PRINTS
I have recently started an ETSY Store to sell some of my work as prints.
