What I Do

Simply put - I make people hungry.

I am an award-winning commercial photographer that primarily services the hospitality and interior design industries. I also offer other imaging services such as headshots and products. Got questions?  Please just ask me.

More About Me

My name is Dave.

I'm a born and raised Hoosier.  For over 12 years I travelled the US following natural disasters, including nine months in New Orleans after Katrina. My education is in agriculture. I'm a husband. My beautiful wife is an attorney and one of the good guys. I have two daughters - one that flies and one that runs. I've thrown the first pitch at a Minor League baseball game. I've travelled to Europe but not Asia. In 1994 I performed with Jim Nabors at the Indy 500 (along with about 250 other people). I consider donuts a food group.
