David is a sought after Professional Wedding Photographer; combining artistic, illustrative, traditional and photo-journalistic styles. “Today’s Bride reads all of the current Wedding magazines. She wants to stay informed and wants to select from a variety of Photographic styles.” Color, black and white, sepia, pastel and collage images. To meet these expectations, Today’s Wedding Photographer must incorporate an active program of continuing education to include the ever expanding world of Digital Technology.
Drawing on over 2,500 hours of color printing and retouching with film and paper, David has applied his extensive knowledge base of color, design and graphic layout to Digital Photography and Wedding Album design. “I have translated the world of the color darkroom to the computer with Photoshop Action sets to emulate darkroom and retouching techniques.” “This pallet, along with the broad spectrum of digital enhancements, possible with the computer, allow for a soft and romantic rendition of wedding and portrait images.” “With today’s digital Album manufacturers, such as GraphiStudio, Wedding Album Design has taken on an entirely new dimension, allowing for exceptional story telling of the wedding day.”
In keeping with his desire to invent, David has recently developed an exclusive new product he calls, ™DVD Live Album. Developed by David for destination customers, this concept has caught on quickly. Within weeks of the wedding day, David delivers a wedding album DVD, making the process of Album Design streamlined for his customers. The ™DVD Live Album features a menu driven 16:9 Wide Screen presentation of a pre-designed wedding album pages set to music. A must see for all prospective clients!
