David inherited his first film camera at age ten. He joined the photo club at high school and went further to study Photography at the Pretoria Technikon. Fuelled by his love for the medium and desire to embrace the transition from film to digital he continued studying beyond his three year diploma to specialize in digital photography and photo manipulation. Subsequently, His purist and sensitive approach to capturing his subject has lead him to work exclusively with available light both in studio and on location.
David has accumulated over a decade’s worth of photographic experience working in Johannesburg and throughout South Africa as well as abroad. He has captured images for leading South African interior and lifestyle publications. He has documented product, interior design and architecture for award winning designers and architectural firms and advertising agencies. Furthermore, he has worked on campaigns for top South African product and food brands.
David’s work exhibits his ability to capture innate beauty within his subject through acute and spontaneous attention to detail.
