For the past 30 years, David has been the Creative Director of multi award-winning TV Production house, Hypervision. David has received over 25 National awards, including “highest honours nationally”.
Turning 40 (a long while back) and now a father of older children, it was time to put much of his working and personal development into a passion that had beckoned him for years, and rather than trying to capture 25 frames per second, wanted to come home with only one frame that told the whole story. Spending 80 hours per week working with other peoples ideas, budgets and deadlines, is fine during the week, however, it was getting tiresome having to constantly pack up locations just before the “best part of the shot” or the “golden hour of light” had arrived because of
timelines, which made David feel that he had traded in the very reason he had started in the industry. “To express and create.”
David's semi nude figure work has gathered enormous interest and a large following worldwide, with over 25 prints leaving Australia each week for international buyers and collectors. His unmistakable style, uses landscape textures to blend subtle nudes. Normally a little elusive, but rarely confronting for the viewer. (See Bodyscapes)
With a recent double nomination for the international Black & White spider awards, his artistic work is being quickly recognized and private collectors are buying up many of these original pieces.
Being a Visual Director for the past 20+ years, has meant that David has a special flair for composition and identifying those unique shots.
Most of David’s photography focuses on the varying “moods”, “Character” and “Experience”, rather than that one big “hero” shot rarely seen.
He "rarely" manipulates any images, as he believes this is for graphic artists, not photographers!
