Artist Message



I grew up dirt poor. As a child I lived on hippie communes with no neighbors for miles, tiny apartments in Boston and everything in between. I went to 6 different high schools and was a punk rock teen who misspent my youth at the detriment of myself and others.

For the last 20 years I've been blessed with a new life where I take nothing for granted and see endless possibilities in each new day. I credit my less than normal life experiences to how I view the world.

I really hope to use my work to not only help a clients bottom line but also to inspire beauty in the everyday.

My other passion is passing along what I've learned, both professionally and personally to those who would want to hear. I offer workshops, personal consultation and mentoring opportunities that vary depending on the seasons of my life.


David works to capture the true esssence and qualities that make a person who they are. He shoots his subjects in a way that flatters them and puts the focus on them and not him.

His style is edgy while at the same time giving much respect to the principals that make for timeless photography. He strikes the balance of both style and substance.

Based in Nashville, TN David will shoot anywhere in the U.S. or abroad.

David often shoots out of his 5,600 square foot studio in Downtown Nashville. Visit the studio web site or ask him for a tour.
