When David set off from University of Iowa to spend the summer showing his still work to the New York ad community, The New York Museum of Modern Art bought one of his photographs for their permanent collection.

Then he was awarded the inaugural cover of Life Magazine's reissue.

He soon became focused on the beauty and integral detail involved in shooting sumptuous looking food, gorgeous liquids and stunning products.

It was only a matter of time before he opened Big Deahl Studios in Chicago where he became one of the most sought after table top director/cameramen in the business.

He continues to push the boundaries of lighting, design and innovation to create artfully crafted commercials.

David loves to shoot and he makes sure the agency and clients love the the whole experience of working with BDP.
