Hi. I'm Dave, a photographer since age 6. I was 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, Petsmart & Petco and local businesses. I love my job and I volunteer regularly for animal rescues.
I am experienced in art, portraiture, fashion, new model portfolios, business & actor's head shots, etc. My passion is on location session 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.
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 art, that's not all that I shoot and I'm not into gratuitous nudity.
If we're working together, I'll insist on a few things:
1.) A Service Agreement (contract) if you're paying me, or a Model Release if we're doing a trade. Both are short, written in plain English and protect BOTH of our interests. I can email them to you before our session.
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 must assume you want to cancel if we have not been in touch 24 hours prior to the session.
3.) You are welcome to bring a mature escort other than your parent or your spouse/lover. 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! Thanks for reading! Got a question? Just ask me.
