David has a unique depth of knowledge and understanding of digital photography.


Taking his first photo for money aged 5!!! and then learning printing from chaps in their 60's in the mid 1960's as a child, he was taught techniques long since obsolete. His father Reg was a press photographer, and David received a superb grounding in all the required photo and people skills from him.

Leaving school in 1980 David worked at Butlin's in Filey as a photographer - an advanced lesson in people skills!

He has been photographing weddings since aged 13 which makes this year his 33rd anniversary!

Learning and using Photoshop from version 2.5 back in the late 80's give 20 years experience of the program (and with CS3 is still learning!). At that time he also published a monthly magazine and was responsible in all it's design - so was a very early adopter in DTP too.

Has owned and run a digital lab since 1999... and became a beta tester for the production software ever since. Kodak have used his photos, designs and output at every major world show until 2007.
