My name is David Roberts and I live in Cornwall.
I first learnt photography while I was at college using a 35mm camera and developing photos in the darkroom. During this time, I became a particular fan of black and white, due to the contrast and interplay between light and shadow. I then went onto digital photography, as a natural progression. I believe a photograph is capturing a moment that will forever be forgotten, or lost.
I do not have an over reliance on heavy post photo retouching & manipulation, as I think both the model and photo should speak for themselves. However, a picture that has been heavily artistically manipulated can be a work of art.
I've worked with many models including Charlotte Holmes who was a Finalist for Britain's Next Top Model 2010 & then she went on to represent us in the Miss World competition by becoming Miss England 2012! Also I have worked with Lisa Ann Hillman who was a finalist from Britain's Next Top Model 2009. On a shoot, I retain both a professional attitude and I make sure the model is at ease.
I was a Plymouth Calendar Girls photographer, I carried out the photography at various charity events. I was a photographer for a local Help For Heroes charity calendar 2012 where I was responsible for the photos for the August and October months. I was the behind the scenes photographer for South West's Top Model and an official event photographer for Dolly Rocker 2011 (Miss Alternative Cornwall).
In 2012 I was one of the photographers involved in a charity modelling competition called England's Top Model 2012. The photoshoot day was held at Sailors Nightclub, Newquay and I carried out the fashion shoot and twenty models were involved. The final was held at 55 Club, New Oxford Street, London on June 2012 and I was the event photographer for the night.
I also carried out a photoshoot for the June month of the Alternative Calendar Girls Devon and Cornwall (ACDC) 2013 Calendar and I was behind the scenes and event photographer on the Launch Night, which was held at Walkabout Newquay. It was a very busy night.
If you are interested in a photoshoot, contact me and we can discuss rates and details. I can either shoot at your home or a location of our choice.
