David P. Best Photoraphy Reportage Portfolio

David P. Best

Photography has been one of my passions since high school. I was able to use my photography skills to pay for my college education, and since then, this has been an avocation rather than a vocation per se. I have trained with some of the best present-day professionals, and have been fortunate enough to photograph around the globe.

Photography is one of the ways I experience being an artisan. Below are some of my personal favorites from my portfolio. I am equally at home in the studio or on location, and while my early works were produced with wet chemistry film and paper, all of my work is now digitally archived and mastered, and I migrated to digital image capture exclusively in 2000. The images below are "as captured" and unaltered in content, and none are composite compositions - including the mid-air dancer shots. Thanks for viewing. Be sure to check out the reportage page to see what can be achieved in visual story telling with still images.
