Robert David is a North Yorkshire based photographer covering wedding, portraits, pets and events across the UK
Ey up! I'm Dave.
Okay, let's clear up the obvious. Yes, I am Robert David, that's my name, but I was always called David. However, I thought 'Robert David' sounded far better for a business name in photography.
Yes, I am a Yorkshireman. Born here, grew up here and remain here. Why would I leave such a diverse and beautiful landscape?
I've been a photographer for a long time. I've not always operated professionally and in the past 14 years I took a big break from it to focus on my IT career. Frankly, that was a mistake, but that's how we learn lessons in life.
I started out photographing family portraits and soon began photographing weddings. Via a client I then dabbled in dance show photography before the aforementioned 'break'.
It was dance that pulled me back into photography. All four of our daughters danced at a local school and it was through volunteering my time there as a photographer that I realised I wanted to hold that camera in my hand as often as I could and that photographing dancers was something that really interested me.
I am based in Kirkbymoorside, right on the southern edge or the North York Moors National Park. It's a fantastic location to be in that affords me the luxury of having some of the most beautiful scenery in the country to work with.
My work is primarily in the Ryedale area of North Yorkshire but I do go further afield too if the demand calls for it.
Away from the camera I enjoy running with our Labradors, Duke and Bear, walks, cooking and spending time with my beloved family. I'm also involved with our daughters' dance school and a local theatre where I can sometimes be found carrying out chaperone duties for which I am fully licensed and enhanced DBS checked.
I am covered by full UK Public Liability Insurance.
