It's real simple, if I ask you to shoot then I wouldn't charge you. If you ask me then it would have to be a paid shoot. This is part of my livelihood and a job. I get no benefit out of shooting someone for just the sake of shooting and it does not pay the bills. I take my work very seriously and will give you 150%. I try to offer unique aswell as creative images. If you like my work and believe it would be beneficial to your portfolio then make the investment in yourself and lets see what we can do.
Of course to every rule there is exceptions. I maybe be interested in collaborating with persons of "outstanding" merits and/or for tear sheets. If you think you have what I'm looking for please don't hesitate to ask.
Second time around and you not only delivered but you have given me more than I had expected. The photos came out BREATHTAKING!! All of your ideas were great and the artwork is beautiful! I love everything!!! I don't know how but you have truly truly captured some really awesome pictures. I have gotten a lot of compliments on yo...ur work and as always will always recommend you to friends and family.
Thank you for your hospitality… and making this so a very memorable moment in my life as always.
http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set= … 9748f64423
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a truly incredible experience! I have never been the type of person who has enjoyed getting photographed and as this was my first professional photo shoot ever, I was understandably nervous beforehand.
I can honestly tell you that all of those nerves vanished with the first phone call that you made to me to discuss the shoot. I was beyond impressed with your level of professionalism, thoroughness and dedication. You truly pay attention to every detail. You took a lot of time and effort in understanding what my expectations were of the shoot and how we could achieve the finished product together.
Your patience, sense of humor and passion for what you do was very apparent and really put me at ease on the day of the shoot. You have a great sense of creativity and really have an eye for what would work in front of the camera including the details of the background as well.
Thank you so much for the hard work that you do! I am very happy with my photos and would highly, highly recommend you to anyone both novice and professional. They will not be disappointed!
http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set= … 07c222e9a9
The picture are very beautiful. You were the greatest. We had a blast. You were very Professional and made Kait feel right at home. For her first shoot I could not have asked for a nicer or more professional person. Please lets do it again !! I would recommend you highly to anyone. If anyone wants to reach me they can at email@example.com and I will tell them what a great person and photographer you are. They can also call my cell (XXX) XXX-XXXX.
Thanks for the chance you gave my wonderful daughter,
I had an awesome time at the shoot, it was a lot of fun! Since it was my first shoot I was a little nervous, it helped a lot that we had a meeting prior to the shoot and that we got to know each other before the actual shoot. You made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera, as if it was like I had been doing it my whole life. I was glad we worked together on shots and concepts, you had a lot of really cool ideas, and the pictures came out great, I love them! You were very professional with everything, and I can tell you really love what your doing. I am very happy with the finished product, and very lucky that I had you as my first photographer for my first shoot. I would absolutely recommend you to everyone, and I would love to work together again down the road.
Thanks for everything,
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … f92cab3347
Dave, thank you so much! I had a wonderful time shooting with you! You were definitely a lot of fun, very easy-going, and hospitable!
I just wanted to take the time to thank you! It was a lot of fun shooting with you. Time went by so fast and I think it was because we were so caught up with taking picures and being creative. I love that we planned everything ahead of time and that the shoot was organized, it helped us both see what we were going for. Thanks again and hope to see more amazing pictures from you.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 981a50f410
I can't thank you enough for having done such a beautiful job with the pictures, the colors are amazing, the backgrounds incredible and to top it off, you made the experience simply unforgettable. The fact that you have the talent to come up with location and position is just a small part, the rest is your drive to keep on going and your easy way to make me feel comfortable and relaxed while shooting. Being this one my first photo shoot experiences at the age of 41, you really made me feel and look 21! Thank you so much for creating such lasting memories!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 1e6fe584ac
Once again you have produced fabulous work!!! The shoot was even better than I imaginedâ¦truly relaxing and enjoyable. You have great ideas that dovetail my personality and assets! Since we planned for this shoot to show more intensity, I was a bit nervous, but somehow you managed to make me feel right at home. Your direction and spirit allowed me to express great âfeelingsâ in the pics. I am truly grateful you were able to bring out my inner emotions and capture them beautifully on film. You are a wonderful person and photographer! I am not surprised that your business has become so successful! I look forward to working with you againâ¦thanks again and many blessings!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … d117b1c106
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the great experience I had while using your services. Typically I rate getting my picture taken right up there with a visit to the Dentist, but the time spent with you was very relaxing and a pleasant. You made the whole process very light and humorous and allowed me to relax while not appearing stiff as I usually do. The photo's you took were as good as I've ever had and I also appreciate how quickly you were able to get the finished product out to me, awesome!
I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who may be looking for a photographer. Thanks again!

Dave - Just want to say that I had a great experience at the photo shoot! An experience I will never forget. Thank you so much for your hospitality, you are amazing and fun to work with!. I felt comfortable and confident with every shot. Your ideas were great and I look forward to working with you again...
Thanks again - Jo
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … aec61e92c3
I want to thank you so much for today. Words can't express what a joy it was to work with you. Your professionalism and hospitality was amazing and heartfelt.
Ed and I both enjoyed the shoot but also enjoyed your company and getting to know you and have to say it was our pleasure to work with you. Your personality
made the time fly, made it easy to shoot and pose, we felt as if we were with an old friend rather than a photographer we were just working with for the first time.
Hereâs a Testimonial for you to use:
David is a true professional; he puts a lot of time and energy in prior to the shoot. He takes the time to discuss the ideas and visions that he and I came up with, so that when our shoot
took place we both knew what to expect. This extra effort made it so each of us knew that weâd be getting the most out of our session. His warm personality makes him easy to work
with and makes for a very enjoyable and fun shoot. This is the first time I worked with Dave and I can honestly say that I started my shoot, meeting a photographer that was nice,
professional, caring, and fun to work with. At the end of the shoot I left knowing that I now have someone that I have the pleasure of calling a friend and look forward
to working with again.

Many blessings to you in your career! - - As a matter of fact... we will see you again for our friend's shoot.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … e7ea14f673
Once again, top notch photography!!! I am extremely satisfied with the results of my 2nd photo shoot with you. You make every shoot a fun and unforgettable experience. You have a way of making a person comfortable in front of the camera. No other photographer can top your talent. Thank you so much for everything.

As always my Dave,
You have out done yourself. After looking at other peoples work on model mayhem, I feel very blessed that I got to work with the best of the best!!!!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … eee2db8e57
First of all, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for a WONDERFUL shoot!!! This was by FAR, the BEST shoot I have had, yet... When we first discussed shooting together, I hesitated due to the distance between us. I wasn't sure if it would be worth the travel, considering how many local, talented photographers are right here, in my back yard.
YOU made this happen and I can't tell you how happy I am that I decided to make the effort!
In our first meeting, I was blown away by your professionalism. The sample sheets your brought for us to go through to create OUR concepts were well thought-out and obviously took tremendous effort and time on your part... even before knowing if I would follow-through and DO the shoot, Your creativity was evident...
As I was making the trip... the VERY LONG drive, I wondered how we would do. I wasn't feeling great about my portfolio. I heard some negative feedback from two agencies regarding my photos and felt very defeated. I wasn't sure I could even "get into the mode", which I know is so important in a shoot.
From the minute I arrived, I was calm, confident, excited and you made me feel like you had NOTHING else more important at that moment... Your goal was to make this the best shoot/experience for ME, resulting in photos I didn't think were even possible.
The result: BLEW ME AWAY! Even BEFORE the photos were edited, they were better than ANY I had ever seen (of myself) and it took everything in me NOT to post them UNEDITED!!! I had to "keep my fingers from clicking upload more than once! The only thing that stopped me was my PROMISE to you that I would WAIT... BOY WAS IT WORTH IT!! LESS than 24 hours later, you sent me my first THREE edited shots.... !!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!
If anyone EVER questions if it's worth it, the travel, the time, the PHOTOGRAPHER, etc. PLEASE do not hesitate to have them contact me. I can't wait to work with you again!!!!!

I can't believe all of the time and effort put into the shoot came out so good; all of the ideas, outfits and specially your talent came together perfectly, and the pictures are the proof.
At first, I wasn't sure of my comfort level in front of the camera, but with your guidance all of those feelings washed away.
It was an amazing experience, and I had so much fun. I am happy that I know I have plenty of pictures to make my own portfolio.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 39097cb068
Thank you so much for a truly amazing experience that I will never forget. Right from the very start, you impressed me with your efficient, professional manner - an approach that not only inspired confidence, but generated (and by far exceeded) the results I was looking for. It was so refreshing and inspiring to work with someone who possesses so much insight and talent. Your passion for what you do is evident in every shot and made my first shoot so much fun! Your artistic talent is exceptional. I am utterly amazed how each shot captured a unique look and aspect of my personality. You exceeded all of my expectations and I already cannot wait to work with you again!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 3e779d09bb
Thank you so much for a truly great experience. I'm someone who never liked having their picture taken, but you made me feel so comfortable and the photo shoot so much fun. I'm very happy with the outcome. Your creative and technical talent is amazing.
I'm getting lots of positive feedback about the pictures and who the great photographer is )... I'll continue to tell my peeps that you're the man to hire!
BTW - I really loooove the gremlin photo!! ) It makes me laugh and you really captured my quirky and silly self. That's me!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … ba4a30fdd4
I have to say that even though this was my first professional photo shot, it felt like I've been working with you for a long time! You made it fun and easy and very comfortable.
It's clear to see that you are very talented and passionate in what you do. I especially enjoyed the fact that you can balance business with relaxation and fun! I was even surprised to see how comfortable and relaxed "I" was in front of a camera and I give you credit for most of that. I had a great time, lots of laughs and appreciate all your motivation and encouragement throughout the photo shoot.
This was a memorable day for me and I look forward to working with you again in the future!
I would definitely recommend you to others! Keep up the good work!!

I wanted to write you to just tell you how truly happy I was to have you as my photographer. From the moment we started, you made me feel so confident that you will do a great job I was able to truly enjoy the experience. You brought with you professionalism, humor, and an almost tangible passion for what you do. And my goodness, you do it so well. Iâm incredibly lucky to have such talented friend like you. Not only were you taking amazing pictures and capturing every moment, but more importantly, as you were doing so you made me feel so relaxed and comfortable throughout the whole day. You made it possible to just have fun and enjoy myself.
I donât quite know how to express my gratitude to youâ¦Thanks Dave!!!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 19df74ffd1
Thank you for an amazing experience. I will definitely remember my first photo shoot. You made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera. You are amazing and fun to work with! You are definitely talented and have the eye for what works. My trust and comfort with you shows in the pictures. I had a wondeful time and I look forward to working with you again.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 1f449c0de6
I am not one that is usually comfortable taking pictures but from the start David made me comfortable, had great ideas for shots, and brought a very friendly and professional personality. Not to mention , the photos he took came out great!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 7951816fea
Had a very productive photo shoot on 1-31-10 with the one and only Dave Flynn, man it was easy workin wit'em I told'em what I was lookin for and he provided just the right look for me! I got to see some of his work and all I got to say is "I'm looking forward to the next"
Mouf told ya so!
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 248b590bbe
Thank you very much Dave did a great job, everyone that seen the pictures on Facebook asked who did the work.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 09b751b5f0
Beautiful Job...I'm very proud of you David.....amazing work
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 28a55daeed
If you ever felt uncomfortable in front of the camera, Dave Flynn will cure you! Youâll enjoy being yourself, find the humor or the comfort to achieve whatever you hoped from your photos because he helps take the attention off yourself with his down to earth manner.
Dave has a way of engaging you not only in conversation but everything useful about the environment around you which leaves you no time to be self-conscious.
One thing I love about Dave is that he encourages his models to bring their own creativity into their work. Some of his models have dance, drama or gym training which are all useful skills. Some models have special clothes or props of their own to bring. The photo shoot becomes a dialogue, a communication where unexpected creativity can develop.
Thank you Dave for a wonderful time. It is a memory I will never forget!

I am absolutely thrilled with the photos of my wedding. Your knack for creating a story from a single image is incredible. Not to mention your ability to use your artist eye to enhance and refine the details of an image to make each photo truly a work of art. Combine those attributes with your fun and laid-back personality, and your professionalism and you have a perfect photographer. Thank you so much for everything!

I think people often overlook the talent of their friends; perhaps because the talent or skill isn't what made them friends to begin with.
We knew you did professional photography work, but until recently never considered asking you for a session. I am so glad we did! I cannot tell you how pleased Richard and I are with the photographs! Our niece, Maia looks stunning! And our grandson, Bradon is just adorable. Your ideas and suggestions were spot on! And the comments we've received are priceless. Thank you for capturing this small slice of our family in
such a beautiful fashion. We look forward to another session, perhaps this summer! We always have a good time when visiting with you, but this time was extra special.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … da577e2a71
You are the consummate professional -- courteous, respectful and amazing at what you do. Most importantly, however is how creative and talented you are. From the moment we started working together, you put me at ease and made me feel so comfortable. I loved your ideas and the fact that you had done research prior to the shoot. You took my desires, and brought them to life better than I could have ever imagined. Additionally, your studio is so versatile and conducive to so many types of shots. I really enjoyed working with you and am looking forward to doing another shoot very soon. Thank you for making me feel and look so beautiful.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 379ccd5ac1
I had a great experience working with you. You are professional, helpful, a blast, and I felt very comfortable working with you and would most definitely recommend your services to others. You really were a great photographer to work with and I enjoyed my experience.
I have showed a lot of friends the pictures and they absolutely loved the shots, edits and everything! I have never gotten so much praise from a picture before, its great! I just love the shots! Thanks for everything too. I really am glad we worked together and I like what we came up with.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … f95eef33cb
HI there Dave!!
what a lovely Time we had shooting at your home studio...Exceptional tending and a true professional!! Thanks for making the experience relaxing and rejuvenating..
working with you was adventurous and exciting...thanks for making us feel at home and last but not least thanks for the CAKE...you sure know how to take care of your models.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 47139623d4
I would love to thank you Dave for the beautiful impression you created of me at Dave's Lasting Impressions. I sincerely appreciate the time and the effort you spent creating a comfortable working environment. That made the photo shoot that much more easier.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … bcc63c53fa
I've worked with Dave twice now and both times were great from start to finish. He was absolutely professional and courteous throughout. He was constantly coming up with new ideas and working with him was a ton of fun. After all, I did go back for seconds! I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and would definitely work with him a third time and more if the opportunity arose.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 4615583ada
Hi Dave, Thanks so much for an awesome day. I was a bit nervous, given that this was my first photo shoot, but your professionalism and easy, laid-back personality put me at ease immediately. I never had so much fun getting my picture taken! Your creativity is amazing and you really do have a great eye. I really like the fact that you were able to capture my personality through the photos. I look forward to working with you again...sooner rather than later.
You're the Best,
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 69e5500911
I had the pleasure of having Dave take my pictures in Dec. 2008. It was my 1st experience having a photo shoot; Dave made me feel very comfortable before, during and after the shoot. I appreciated the communication with him prior to the shoot; expressing what his intentions were, providing a âscriptâ of what we would be doing and allowing me to provide input on what I would like to see as the end result. When I arrived at the shoot, he and his assistant were helpful and relaxing, this made for a great experience. These words do not express the appreciation I have for the work that Dave did, the pictures were absolutely beautiful, and I am not one to like myself in pictures. Dave you are a wonderful person and an excellent photographer. I look forward to working with you in the future and wish you the best of luck in your businessâ¦.donât forget about me when you are shooting those supermodels J.
God Bless Laila Drake.

I worked with Dave last summer for the first time. I was nervous at first since it was my first professional shoot, but became comfortable once the shoot began because of Daveâs professionalism and desire to make me feel at ease. He clarified my expectations and expected outcome before we began. However, Daveâs own creative eye and intuitiveness is what was responsible for the end result, which was a beautifully artistic visual representation of who I am as a person. I enjoyed the shoot so much, that I did one with my 14 year old daughter 6 months later, with the same result. Heâs a talented artist who I would recommend to anyone looking for a professional quality photographer.

Finally a little about me:
Let's share comments before requesting to be friends...
After 21 years of owning a glass etching business, which I closed in 2006, I've been in search of another type of creative outlet. I've decided to take my love of photography to the next level and even though I've been doing it for many years, it hasn't been until the past few year or so that I've decided to take it more seriously.
I'm mainly focused on paid assignments now (my rates are very reasonable), but will consider TFCD on a very limited basis if the situation is right. If you would like to discuss the possibility of working together, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Please be aware that I'm NOT here to date...
All my best,
Me shooting Dominique DiCaprio (aka Miss Howard Stern TV October 2009) in the jungle room at Bube's Brewery in Mount Joy, PA.
