I love that David captures raw beauty with his photography. David has helped me become comfortable taking pics with a more natural look and feel. I’m not sure how he’s able to capture every emotion but it helps me display what I really want my audience to see whether I am on or off the stage.

Hands down, David is the best! David did an amazing job of capturing my energy in my corporate headshot. He is passionate about his work and it shows. I have never received so many compliments from my photos and most importantly, I love them! From the outset, David was a clear communicator, extremely honest, very timely, and his turn around, follow-up and accessibility exceeded my expectations. Whether he’s shooting pieces of Jamaica, his wife, or any other subject matter, David has a keen eye for detail and simplicity and somehow he always manages to nail the perfect shot. Aside from being a true professional, David is also a genuinely nice guy. He has a cool and laid-back vibe about him that instantly makes you feel at ease and comfortable in his presence. I think this trait is what enables him to capture such great, natural & relaxed candid shots. I cannot recommend David enough. His work speaks for itself and his unique style of photography is sure to amaze you too.
