“David is one of the most professional and talented photographers I have ever met….What I really love about David is that he has a Ph.D. in environmental science! There is nothing like working with an equally intelligent and creative photographer.

Since our initial communication, David was extremely professional, answered all of my questions, and covered every little detail. He provided a contract for my review, as well as guidance on what to expect…David is extremely talented, great listener, and above all a true professional in what he does. I highly recommend you work with him and you will end up with amazing pictures!
