Hi! It's me, Dave! I am a Calgary and area sports, event and portrait photographer. I am extremely proud to be the photographer for the Canadian Sports Centre Calgary as my focus and passion is photographing Canada's elite and Olympic athletes in action competing and training for their sports.
I admire and believe in Canada' athletes; the sacrifices they make to excel in their sports, the dedication they give to everything they do. I believe they need to be seen and recognized for what they do on behalf of their country.
I also like to illustrate the process behind the successes, spending time shooting our athletes training and readying for events. This includes the coaches, trainers, therapists - everyone who is part of the process - who dedicate as much time and effort as the athletes.
Calgary is a great city to be a sports photographer. There is a mini Olympics here every winter as the world's best speedskaters, bobsledders, lugers, sliders, skiers, snowboarders, aerialists and more compete in world cup events, thanks to the legacy of the 1988 Olympics. The summer is also host to numerous events that test our national teams and athletes.
I am a member of the Professional Photographers of Canada and am nationally accredited as a sports photographer.
