A photographer’s work has to speak for itself. When it comes down to it, a photographer is only as good as the work he can do. And Dave has done a lot of good work. He’s shot tons of people, places and things in his career, from famous people to fish, lawnmowers to Lamborghinis. From sea to shining sea and sometimes under them. Take a look through various sections and see. If you don’t quite see what you’re looking for, just let Dave know he’s probably shot it. And, once you see his images, you’ll find out that his work doesn’t just speak for itself. It shouts.
