David Beckham - Pickerington, Ohio
Speaker: Sunday, April 8th
Program Description: Close-ups for Seniors, Posing Lighting and Props
After pursuing two other careers and enjoying them tremendously, I decided it was time to follow a life-long passion of portrait photography. I started relearning in the late nineties and began David Beckham Photography and set up a basement studio. My goal was to be just like the pioneers of senior photography, Kent Smith and Larry Peters, but cheaper. I had visions of growing to tremendous proportions. Well that dream never happened. As soon as I developed my own fashion based style, my own Senior Model Program, and my own way of using OCF did I make an impact. I opened my studio in 2008 and have seen 15-25% growth every year since. In 2012 I changed to only offering Senior and Fashion photography and my best sales ever. My work has been published in many national magazines over the last year and I have a TOP 10 photo in the 2016 PPA ‘s Grand Imaging Awards in the Senior category. Senior Style Guide has chosen my work three years in a row for their coveted Hot 100 list. During the summer of 2017 I was humbled to be able to speak at the Mastermind Event, that honored the Top 100 studios in the country. I speak and teach at multiple PPA events, SYNC, Shutterfest 16, 17, and 18. I also lead “Everything Senior Workshops” from my studio and on location 4-6 times a year.
