…most of my friends just call me Dave.
Digital Photographer, Photoshop Guru, Pixel Junky, Husband, Father, Brain Surgeon, Ninja…okay…okay…(I’m just a part time, amateur, hobbyist) Brain Surgeon and Ninja!
Yes, I am a huge dork!
Actually, I’m just a guy who made his living first as a commercial conventional (film) photographer for 16 years. Switched to digital in 1995 and fell in love all over again with the art and science of photography. These days my work is divided between, photography, retouching, and teaching (I teach digital photography and Photoshop). In this economy I need 3 revenue streams!
When I’m not working I’m spending time with my beautiful wife/make-up artist/partner Lisa, and 3 wonderful (most days wonderful ) children, Ian, Ava, and Lucas.
