Dave Kelley Artistics
My reason for loving photography is the art I can create. That's all I care about. That and learning new things. And teaching others what I've learned so far. This is what I do all day every day. I live it and breath it.
The art I'm interested in comes in several forms and seem to be changing as I grow.
Those I shoot with need to be very comfortable with their body. During a shoot, new ideas may come to mind, and the model should be ready to run with it. I never ask someone to go beyond their comfort levels...ever. So, I limit my shooting time to those that are comfortable with the art we may want to create. Chat with me if you have questions.
My website has a LOT of great examples of my work as well as blogs about the industry, and several pages about what i expect from a shoot. You should read at least the 'expectations' page.
I have my limits too. No porn of course...and no open legs. Please respect that. When I say I shoot for the art I actually mean that.
I'm posting new images on Facebook almost daily, so that's a good place to see what I'm up to. http://www.facebook.com/davekelleyphotography

"Worked with Dave on a photo shoot, wherein he assisted with his lights and studio. Extremely easy to work with and great facility."
I want to thank all of the amazing models and makeup artists for sharing their time, talents, and beauty with me and my cameras. Collaboration, out of the box thinking, and talent is what creates a great portfolio.
And a special thanks goes to my loving and understanding wife of 31 years, Linda, for allowing this old man in the fall of his life to enjoy creating his art without restrictions.
