David Schub began his passion for photography taking photojournalism classes at a local jr college in the greater LA area. He assisted two of his friends doing events and shooting models for high fashion photography. One of his friends began assisting him on shoots and teaching him lighting as well. He took the skills he learned and did it on his own. He assisted a food photographer several times at his studio to learn about food photography. He also studied cookbooks, food magazines, restaurant menus and YouTube tutorials.
When I was in journalism, freezing moments in time. When I started shooting food, taking a photograph of a food item and when i'd show someone the photo, they'd say "that looks so delicious, I am so hungry now," it felt like my job was done.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Well I have shot mostly "young' professionals in the corporate world. I have shot a few "non-young" professionals lately and I just have to make them feel comfortable in front of the camera, by telling them how to pose the best way so they don't feel uncomfortable and have a bad session not liking their photos.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I was honored a few awards from the jr college that I attended from some photos I took when I was taking photojournalism, including 1st place for spot news, 2nd place for hard news and honorable mention for a photo essay for a Nazi rally I covered in Downtown Los Angeles.
A fun fact about this photographer
I played little league when I was younger and made it to semi-finals in state to almost go to Pennsylvania for the little league world series.
