Growing up in Saratoga, Ca, Dave’s life consisted mainly of skate boarding and surfing. After high school he moved to Santa Cruz, Ca, and it was then that he gave some serious thought to being the man that made the magic happen, by being behind the camera, instead of in front of it.

Dave started taking photos of local surfers and skate boarders and began making a name for himself as a photographer. Thanks to his past of surfing and skating, this transition wasn’t very difficult and his photos started getting published in local magazines, and then began appearing in larger magazines such as Surfer, Surfing & Transworld Surf.

Dave’s specialty as a surf photographer is shooting from the water with a fish eye lens and a water housing. You can view more of Dave’s work at Liquid Imagery.
