Images from an unusual angle
David began taking photographs of model cars as a young kid, using his mother's Kodak Instamatic.
In the years since, he has watched and learned at every opportunity, picking up both techniques and cameras as often as possible. "Specialties" now include pets, architecture, sports, wide angles, portraits, macros, concerts, and the viewpoints no one else thinks to try. Ask, and he'll make it work.
David's first book, "As Seen in Brooklyn," features photos from all 56 neighbourhoods in New York's best borough. From iconic Coney Island to industrial Greenpoint, ritzy Park Slope to gritty East New York, the book captures the spirit of the scene throughout the seasons.
A successful Kickstarter campaign funded the book's production and first print run. "As Seen in Brooklyn," released in January 2014, is now available for sale on Blurb.com.
A big thank you to the Kickstarter patrons whose generosity made the book possible:
