A member of the Professional Photographers of America since 1977, David earned the designation of Certified Professional Photographer in 1995. In 1998, his outstanding image-making and contributions to the profession as a speaker, an author, and a mentor helped him become just the 5th individual to simultaneously earn the respected Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees from the PPA. In 2002, he added the Fellowship and Service degrees to his MNPPA Accredited Photographer status, making him the 5th member in the then-76-year history of the organization to earn all three honors.
His energetic personality and high-energy approach make him a natural for High school senior portrait photography; his fun-loving style is a favorite among wedding parties. David's talents also include creative portraiture of families and their young children.
David's numerous award-winning wedding and children's images have been selected for display in both the PPA and MNPPA Traveling Loan Collections, and he has been honored with 2 Fuji Masterpiece Awards. In addition, a wedding album created by David and a colleague was selected as one of the Top Ten Event Albums in the 2005 PPA International Competition.
He has been honored with the PPA National Award, the MNPPA Addie Award and the TCPPA Staples Award for his "outstanding volunteer service to professional photography." Currently, David serves as a Minnesota Councilor to the PPA, on the Board of Trustees for PPA Charities, is a Councilor of the MNPPA (Minnesota Professional Photographers Association), and is a Past-President of both the MNPPA and the TCPPA (Twin Cities Professional Photographers Association).
