Hi.  My name is Dave.

I'm a photographer and video producer based in Knoxville, Tennessee, just a short drive from Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. For the past decade I’ve been shooting freelance photography for various clients and events. Most recently, I’ve been working as a video journalist at WATE 6 News, the ABC affiliate in Knoxville.

How did you get into photography?

I started my photography venture as a graphic design student at East Tennessee State University and quickly became infatuated with the artistic side of photography. Having a strong love for music, that naturally became one of my most captured subjects. This helped me develop my artistic sense in an environment where low light, high action, and usually a lively environment were the norm.

What do you plan on doing in the future?

I look forward to working with as many clients as my lifespan allows and capturing as many moments as my cameras let me. One of my major goals in life is to shoot photos of blue whales.
