PRODUCER

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.

PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS

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.

INTERVIEWS

Interview's are another way of paying it forward. They give a unique perspective into someone's life and journey. These particular interviews are intended to shine a spotlight on rising talents in sports photography so that they can be seen by other hiring managers both internally and externally. They always highlight photographers that have proven themselves and are known to understand clients needs. They are vetted, trained and trusted.
