More about David B....
What do you love about your job?
I love that everyday is different, everyone is their own person and has their own requests for me to adapt to. I love to capture those special moments. I believe if you’re doing the same photography work everyday, you loose your creativity and fall into routine. You miss thinking out of the box. I’m friendly, professional and treat everyone with respect which I’ve always found to be returned. And what better way to progress in my own business as these personality traits directly reflect my workflow and achievements.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Children are always special to photograph. Capturing their many facial expressions and dramatic body language. And what better way to do this then to ask a toddler to speak about his or her favourite subject!
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I’ve never entered any competitions for my photography or as individual images. That should be a fun fact really… When I was starting out, I obviously scoped out the competition and I quickly realised that every single photographer was an “award winning” or “best in”. Paying to enter competitions in multiple companies to display these is not what I’m about. I find the whole ordeal of award collecting to be very off-putting.
I went on a course during my last year in the marines to find that I already knew everything except a day’s worth of teaching regarding lighting studio equipment. To that end I’ve choose not to go on courses again. Believe it or not, I’m a lovely person. I’m just straight up and honest about myself.
