Pilot - Bristol
David has always had a passion for photography and lighting, studying theatre production and design and simultaneously learning Black & White photography using the college’s enormous dark room – yes, he’s old enough to have used film!
Since then he has gone on to work in stage lighting around the world, living in Italy and India, touring with Paul McCartney, Oasis, to name a few. David was also part of the Montruex Jazz Festival Broadcast team for 5 years, and the Closing Olympic Games in Barcelona 1992. For the past 14 years he has been working as business development for lighting manufacturers utilising his photography and filming skills to capture spectacular lighting on stage.
After a life changing period in 2005, David setup as a Pro-Photographer in weddings and portraits, including college balls, using his people skills to help translate client requirements. He loves his gadgets (his wife will attest to this!) and when he saw his first drone he was fascinated with the possible application in both entertainment and photography. David qualified for his PFCO CAA licence in 2016. Based in Gloucestershire where he appreciates the lush landscapes and all things West Country!
