BEHIND THE SCENES
David worked closely with the Red Bull Racing F1 team and the FIA to gain an all-access pass to The Circuit of the America's in Austin Texas in October 2019. His goal was to follow world renowned racing photographer, Vlad Rys, to shed light on how he does his job. David was able to capture Vlad in action at the exact moment he took some amazing photographs from the weekend. This project was focused solely around still photographs and words.

RED BULL RISING TALENT
Giving back to the photography community is one of David's largest passions. At Red Bull, he had the opportunity to reach out to young up-and-coming talented photographers to guide, teach and share as much knowledge as possible. Red Bull Rising Talent was an intense 5-day photography workshop designed to do just that. 8 photographers were invited to the workshops with Red Bull athletes, top-notch photographers and speakers to create a once in a lifetime experience. Directed by David with support from his colleagues, the students were put through multiple challenges which were all designed to expand their photographic skills as well as give them an understanding of the business and marketing sides of the trade. The outcome was stellar content (both still images and video) that the students, the athletes and Red Bull could use as they see fit as well as new insight and friendships that will last a lifetime.
Working globally with over 500 photographers, David has a large contact list of top-notch content creators in multiple fields. From sports, to products and action to lifestyle, any type of campaign can be created and completed with peace of mind.
Concept to Briefing
Creating the concept from scratch and communicating the idea and shot list to the photographer is a vital step in the success of any project.

Using tools like Excel, Google Spreadsheet, AirTable, and Slack, David likes to stay organized and connected with his colleagues to easily collaborate.
Keeping the delivery process as simple as possible is crucial in order to avoid confusion. From receiving content from his creators, putting them through a QC process and finally delivering them to clients and colleagues is the final step in the entire process.
Working with other brands and companies is both integral to growth and trust between your company, your clients and your photographers. It helps to expand your brands public awareness and ultimately spark interest.
It also builds a sense of community which in turn creates a desire and offers an incentive to those involved and essentially upgrades the level of content you receive organically.
