About Damn Time…
People have been telling me for weeks, months even, that I can’t be a photographer without having and constantly updating a blog. It doesn’t seem to matter that the only people who will read this with any sort of regularity are biologically related. Because of this, a majority of my efforts will go towards responding to my mother’s questions. “Thanks mom, I’m doing fine and I’m glad you like the picture.” Must-read blogging!
Therefore, it shall be noted in this very first effort that I am doing this reluctantly and with little joy.
I’m Dave (or David, professionally), and I’m a photographer. Currently, you can find me in Washington D.C. but I’m sure I’ll be a worldwide phenomenon soon. I’ll be wrapping up a six month stint at the Center for Digital Imaging Arts in Georgetown a month from now, walking away with a Professional Certificate in photography which will edge my diploma from the University of Wisconsin-Madison as the most expensive piece of paper in my possession. The ROI on this one has a very high ceiling so get a piece of this guy while you can still afford it.
Hopefully this will become a forum for me to vent; about the business, about the craft, about the clients, about the lifestyle (or lack-thereof) and anything and everything else. So you can check back to read what I have to say, look at the pretty pictures or post some highly spirited trash-talk.
