About Me

I am an internationally published photographer in the small, but incredibly beautiful, town of Moab, Utah. If you are a model who wants to shoot in some spectacular locations to add to your portfolio with the possibility of being published or just for the sake of producing great art, we should work together. 

I specialize in artistic outdoor landscape nude photography, extreme sports photography and underwater large-animal photography (mainly sharks).  I have helped models develop their portfolios, sold prints for personal collections and to companies for advertisements and have been published in domestic and international magazines.  I recently had 9 photographs in 4 separate categories published in an annual international art nude publication. 

I have successfully worked with models with all experience levels, from absolutely no experience to professional.  Compensation is negotiable.  I mostly shoot TF as trade for nude modeling.  For other shoots, my rates are very reasonable and very often negotiable to meet your budget.

My wife and I host traveling models at our house so during a shoot you will have no expenses.  Although I mostly shoot TF, I reimburse models for their travel expenses.  Most of the models I work with are from surrounding cities such as Salt Lake, Denver, Phoenix, Albuquerque and Las Vegas.  In some circumstances, I will pay for an air flight from Denver to Moab.  My wife is my photography and posing assistant and a very good behind-the-scenes photographer.  Please feel free to contact any of the credited models on this site or Instagram for references.

My wife and I own a 4-wheel-drive camper van.  In addition to shooting in Moab and surrounding locations, we also take models on week-long photoshoot tours to remote locations in the southwest such as southern Utah, New Mexico, Nevada and California.  In some circumstances I will pay for a flight to a location where we will meet to begin the tour.

If you are in Utah or the surrounding states and you would like to work together, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I also travel some in the western US and internationally, so please contact me even if you don't live nearby. You can contact me on this site or the Instagram link above.

"I had the pleasure of traveling with David and his lovely wife in a Covid safe dual vehicle adventure. We drove to many places and hiked to even more. He taught me many great skills to use while in the desert. His wife was a wonderful cook and fed me well every day. It was such an amazing adventure and a joy to work with such talented and fun people. I hope for more adventures with them in the future, and recommend checking David out if you’d like some amazing photos!" Read less
