About MeThough David's formative years were all about art and music, his love for photography blossomed after college, and quite literally by accident. After a near tragic motorcycle accident put him convalescing for nearly a year, his doctor suggested photography after admiring David's artwork. So photography became a career with what many consider a dream job.
David began working for Playboy® magazine in the fall of 1979, soon after, becoming a staff photographer and moving to Chicago. In 1987, he would take a title change to Contributing Photographer where he would continue with Playboy until 2002. It was after this time he would begin to expand on his photography style to include fashion, beauty, and celebrity work for various editorial and advertising assignments worldwide.
Called upon to shoot Petersen Publishing's SPORT magazine swimsuit issue four successive years, the final year would culminate with it being broadcast on ESPN, ESPN-2, and PRIME TICKET, where he would serve both as narrator & host. As well, he would be thrown into an acting stint in a made-for-TV movie titled Posing, aired on CBS, when, while working as a technical advisor, the director tapped David to play the fictional Playboy photographer instead of their actor. From 2000–2003, David was co-host and photographer on Playboy® TV's, Sexy Girls Next Door.
Along with his continued catalog and beauty photography, David has self-published a number of books. One in B&W, titled Passion, is a collection of photographs working with his favorite models. David's books can be found at www.blurb.com, in their online bookstore. Galleries of his work can be found on display at the German GQ magazine website, MenSTYLE-France magazine's website, and French GQ website. In the fall of 2008 and again in 2010, David was guest speaker and program presenter at the international photography trade show, Photokina, held every two years in Cologne, Germany.
In addition to his passion for photography, David also has a passion for cars. For well over a decade, he has pursued road racing as a way to relax. In 2007 he established his own driving events organization, Precision Performance Driving, while also working for various auto manufacturers as a pro driver; including Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ferrari, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Maserati, Nissan, and Porsche. He has competed in a number of endurance races including three 25 hr, where the team finished 3rd in class, and 2nd in class, two successive years.
David continues to live and work out of Marina del Rey, CA and Las Vegas, NV. David may be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or, 310-867-1007
