About Me

I am new to the Bay area.  I am a professional photographer.  I have just relocated my business to the bay area.  I am looking to work with all models with various styles.  As I am restablishing myself to the area, so I am more than willing to work on a TFCD/TFP basis for the near future.  I have spotted many beautiful locations where I would like to shoot.  I would like to get networking and established in the area with all in the business.  I have many connections in California, in the movie and modeling business.  Please look at my work, and contact me ASAP.  I hope you decide to work with me on creating some fantastic works of art.  I am very experienced, not just some guy with a camera.  I can provide numerous references from various models.  Competative rates for portfolio production.  TFCD/TFDVD can be negotiated if both parties will benefit.  Please contact me with your project or ideas.  I promise you will not be disappointed.  More of my work on OMP #151142 and Model Place #17354  Look forward to working with you all. 

A few recent references-More by request.  Please excuse my home page,it is being updated, but is still under construction. 

  My experience with Dave was amazing. He was on point with directing me as a model and really focusing on my needs to create a portfolio. We worked hard and had a fun time. He was quick and efficient with getting my pictures enhanced, touched up, and printed. Everybody I have showed my portfolio to was very impressed with the quality of the pictures. I would definitely recommend Dave to anybody who was in need of any type of photography. I would absolutely use him again to update and create more styled pictures for my portfolio.
Thanks, Amanda

Thanks so much for an awesome shoot. You are truly a great photographer; I enjoyed your creative insight and was so pleased with all of the pictures! You gave me something different for my portfolio, and hopefully I did the same for you! It was a pleasure working with such a talented photographer; I wish you the best of luck when you move to LA!
Thanks again, have a great night!

I have had the pleasure of working with Dave several times over the past few months and it's been a fantastic experience every time. Not only is Dave professional and courteous, but he's always up for trying new things and enjoys model input. The superb quality of the images he delivers truly reflects his dedication. I have never been any less than thrilled with results of our sessions. I always have the best time shooting with Dave, and can't wait to collaborate with him again.

I love working with Dave!  Not only is he professional, creative and artistic, but he never pushes me to do anything I'm uncomfortable with.  His stylistic versatility always amazes me and I have yet to be disappointed with anything from unedited shots to finished artwork.  And in addition to being a great photographer he's a great person.  Thanks, Dave!

Working with Dave has always been a pleasurable experience. He is a friendly, down to earth guy who makes you feel comfortable and is always willing to give his professional advice on how to make a picture more beautiful. He is also very respectful. Out of any photographer I have ever worked with, he was the most efficient with giving me my disk of pictures right away and the edited pictures. I love how my photos come out when I work with him, I use a majority of them in my portfolio and always get great compliments on his work. I'm sure he will make it huge in CA!!

I would just like to say thank you for making one of my first times ever shooting with anyone so perfect, so easy and so fun.  As soon as I arrived I felt so comfortable and welcome.  Any and all nervous thoughts that we aspiring models may have just on the drive to a shoot were gone before I got out of my truck.  Your personality shines through you immediately. Your wife Cathy is a sweetheart, making sure I was not hungry or thirsty, or anything.  I will recommend you to everyone and anyone who wants to shoot for their first time or for their 300th time.  You said you would call in a few days and you did.  You had my CD done so fast too.  When you said if anything at all comes up for work that you would call me... and you did.  And since you stand by your word I was able to be featured in a Music Video.  You are amazing, in some pictures I looked like crap and you made me beautiful.  And lastly I was always told that if you go to a shoot and shoot 300 pictures and if 50 of the 300 come out great that it was considered a great shoot... well what do you call it when you go to a shoot and shoot 300 pictures and 250 come out great?  Let me know Dave because you’re the guy with the answer... Let me know if you ever need me to write anything for you, to recommend you or anything... you are the best...  Love ya! Amanda Horner

Dave is an unbelievable photographer. He is extremely patient and very inspiring.  Thanks to him I am more confident in my modeling career. Thank you so much! Words cannot express my gratitude.  Brenda Lynn

AS a new (and older) model to the industry, I was very nervous prior to shooting. My photo shoot with Dave Wilbur was only my second one since starting back up after over 7 years.
Not only does Dave project a friendly, non-threatening demeanor, but his professionalism, skill and artistry are absolutely amazing. I felt comfortable with him immediately, almost as if he was an old friend. He keeps things light-hearted and upbeat, always making sure you're comfortable and at-ease. His knowledge of lighting is superb. Not every model can be shot the same way, with the same lights, at the same angles, each person's features and needs are different. Dave took the time to get to know me, my concerns and wants concerning images and then seemed to custom tailor his shooting to bring out my best features. Truly an amazing photographer and an all-around great guy. I highly recommend Dave Wilbur!!

You are definitely right, that car is special.  I love how the pictures all turned out. I still haven’t finished choosing all my favs yet.  Thanks for an amazing shoot and all these awesome photos!

I have had the pleasure of working with Dave numerous times.
And I have to say, he is not only fun to work with, but the quality of his work is amazing.
Dave is very professional, and has a vision he brings to life in his work. Each set of pictures are different, and will tell a story of their own.
I highly recommend working with him whether you are an experienced model, or a beginner.
Thank-you Dave for all the great shoots!

Dave, It was so great getting to work with you all of the times that i got to... Im so sad your moving! You were my best photographer. I enjoyed working with you, you made me feel right at home and very comfortable. The pictures were always awesome and you just have an eye for photography. Ryan says thank you also for the shoot, he enjoyed it alot and loves all of the pictures. Its hard to come across a photographer who gets maybe 1 bad shot out of a 300 frame shoot, usually its the opposite. Im going to miss working with you and wish you well smile Im sure you'll succeed in anything you do. And hey, dont forget about us little people! :-p
