"If a picture is worth a thousand words, then my intent is to leave you speechless." ~David
A photography class at Leslie High School introduced sixteen year old David to his first love, photography. He was inspired by how the process of developing images in black and white allowed him to see life and his surroundings from a new perspective, as though looking at it for the first time. He pursued his passion by working as a professional photographer for American Studios, capturing children's smiles across the Midwest region. He also worked with Olan Mills before going out on his own as a free-lance photographer shooting weddings, graduation pictures, family portraits and countless photos of his favorite subject, his daughter Alara. David has an innate sense of beauty and reverence that can be felt in the images he creates. His true passion in photography... creating images that provoke and inspire.
