About David

I have been a professional photographer all my life, and my experience in photography spans decades and covers fashion, modeling, architectural, product and people. Besides stills I also shoot videos, everything from Good Morning America special to Microsoft marketing, time warner Cable and international corporate videos, plus aerials photography from helicopters. This has given me a great advantage over traditional still photographers, I visualize, shoot and light in 3D space and across time.

You can learn years of experience in hours from an international photographer and producer living in LA, I have tutored photography in a one on one setting and prefer to put my students through actual shooting scenarios outdoors with objects and subjects where they shoot as I teach for fastest hands-on absorption. Whether you want to learn the basics of manual camera control or professional tricks, I can teach you how and quickly.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Photography

I am a classically trained photographer with 3 decades professional experience in the field.
In the past I have developed film and used enlargers in darkrooms to print archival prints.
My diverse repertoire includes fashion, portrait, modeling, product, real estate and more.
Besides the art, I am very experienced in all things technical and understand the fundamentals and science of photography.
Some of the camera systems I have used include Sinar, Hasselblad, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fuji and more such as 35mm film cameras, Panavision, Arriflex and Pro HD cameras.
