About MeHi. I'm Dave, a photographer since 1979. I've been voted "Best Pet Photographer in San Diego" on the 10News A-List and I had a photo picked by The Art of Photography Show and other international competitions. In the commercial world I've worked with Starbucks, Deepak Chopra, Petsmart, Petco and many local businesses. I love my job and I volunteer regularly for animal rescues.
I am a very experienced photographer. My passion is on location portraiture photography where the environment of the subject plays as an important part in telling the story as the subject. I'm constantly learning new photographic techniques and acquiring new equipment to take my game higher.
I'm on Model Mayhem to network and source paid work. I'm reasonably priced and willing to work with your budget. Try me! I work with male/female models of all ages, shapes, sizes & colors. I'm open to collaboration and can take creative control and run with it if you're not sure what you want. While I feel the female form is a work of art in and of itself and I love to shoot alluring, suggestive, intimate, artful portraits, that's not all I shoot.
If we're working together, I'll insist on a few things:
1.) A Service Agreement if you're paying me, or a Model Release if we're doing a trade. Both are short contracts, written in plain English and protect BOTH of our interests. I can email them to you before our session if you provide an email address (Model Mayhem Mail doesn't allow file attachments).
2.) Exchanging phone numbers so we can communicate about session details, confirm the session 24 hrs. prior, locate each other at the location if one of us gets lost or has an emergency. Because of so many "no call, no shows" I'll assume you want to cancel if we have not been in touch 24 hours prior to the session. Don't worry, I'm not here to date, either. The phone number is strictly for communicating about shoot details.
3.) You are welcome to bring one mature escort other than a parent or your spouse/lover. I have found people in these roles can really distract a model. No exceptions. Please don't attempt to fool me by bringing your boyfriend and saying "he's just my friend", it's pretty obvious and insults me. No drama, please. Please ensure our session is not cut short because your escort doesn't have enough time for it, gets cold or bored or is otherwise an issue.
Please don't take any of the above personally. Same rules for everyone. :) Sorry, yes, it's necessary! I'm a much more flexible person after we prove ourselves a successful team.Thanks for reading! Got a question about any of it? Cool! Just ask me.
