David has a great full fledged studio and is definitely an expert at what he does. Within 10 minutes, we were able to find the perfect lighting and a good pose and expression for my professional headshot. He did a great job on the touch ups and sent the images within just a few hours. Overall, he's friendly, the studio is very well equipped with all you'd need and he's incredibly efficient and quick. Highly recommend. More...

David was an excellent photographer, and he runs a first class company. I was able to get an appointment quickly for my professional headshot, and the entire experience was smooth, efficient, and high quality. An easy 5 star rating. Thank you!

My husband and I absolutely love our photos! We rarely take professional photos, so we really wanted them to look nice lol. David made us feel comfortable the whole time and knew exactly what to do, so I wasn't surprised the images turned out great! He definitely exceeded our expectations :) More...

To anyone who’s looking for a top-notch and professional studio for any type of photoshoot (headshot, fashion, etc), this is hands down the BEST place you could possibly go to. David is the sweetest person and is extremely talented. He literally works magic behind the camera and his work is phenomenal!I’ve done several professional photoshoots before, but nothing compares to the experience and the way the photos turned out from David. Words can’t justify how creative he is and how amazing the photos turned out. I would definitely recommend Carmel Studios to anyone! More...

Carmel Studios is by far the most best studio I have ever worked in - David is welcoming and professional with a lovely interactive personality and the actual space itself is stunning and fully equipped with large bathrooms, dressing room (with a professional make up table, mirrors and amenities) and a large photography space. David has a lot of experience and offers suggestions and direction in a calm yet authorized manner creating a sense of being in the most capable hands. I will look forward to working with David again - hopefully in the near future! More...

Q&A

A photographer is typically made between a subject and the photographer. Therefore you need to have a good connection with the photographer. A great photographer will make you feel at ease and draw out your natural personality. The photographer can then direct you to create your best image. Of course the technical aspects of a photograph need to be on-point but the key to a great photograph only achieved through the connection with the photographer.

What personal image they want to present? Do they have inspirational photos that they would like to strive to recreate. What is their budget?

I love interacting with people and helping them to look their best. Most people who come to my studio have not had their portrait made in many years. Additionally, they are uneasy in front of the camera. My greatest satisfaction is to help a person settle in and feel comfortable they are in good hands. After that, finding a person's best angle while showing confidence and approachability is a gratifying process. However, it's the reaction when a client see's their final image that is the most rewarding part of the job.

I started the business because of my love of photography. My love for photography began at a very young age with my first Polaroid camera. I opened the studio so I could work with people regardless of weather conditions.

Clients should hire me because of my experience and style of portrait and fashion photography. I have honed my skillset over many years to deliver a differentiated look to my images that is difficult for other photographers to replicate.
