About Dave May
Nick Palermo is a freelance writer I work closely with in the automotive field. With our combined passion for cars we are producing engaging content with professional writing, photography, and a little bit of video on the horizon. Nick’s blog can be seen at the livingvroom.com, and he also writes regularly for autotrader.com.
Patrick Mathis is a photographer I work closely witih primarily in fashion work, but also in larger commercial productions as well. This season we are getting serious about our wedding work and offerings. Patrick's website can be seen at PSM Photography.
Video is a new offering this year utilizing HDSLRs - notably the Canon 5D MK II and the 7D with editing in Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5. Advertising, automotive, and podcasts are a few projects I'm working on. I am happy to be involved in the videography or I can just focus on the editing afterward.
Personalities vary between people and so should the photography which represents them. This is why I am a location specialist shooting in the environments that connect with clients. Both my lighting and the choice of locations are well matched to either the personality or the desired end use of the imagery. Portraits should tell a story about a given person or relationship.
I'm a photographer because I love both the technical aspects of lighting and composition as well as the creative outlet of solving problems. Different subjects require different treatments in lighting, backgrounds, and props. These changing dynamics are what help me grow to produce better work. Commercial catalogue work shouldn't be flat and boring - it needs to be interesting as well as functional in order to stand out from the bombardment of advertising today.
