“My first love and specialty is as a beauty photographer. It still amazes me how symmetry and color can express emotions.” – Paul David

I have been practicing as a beauty photographer for over 7 years in Johannesburg. Having had the opportunity to work with some wonderful campaigns & agencies, I am always looking for ways to enhance and better my work.

My initial goals as a photographer was to work in wedding photography. But having admired the work of a fellow beauty photographer I was quickly captivated by having the opportunity to express both product and emotion in one single image.

In the same light I have been studying the work of international retouchers for years now, always keeping in touch with the latest techniques. The industry has been under scrutiny now for some time for over editing of images, this has led to me taking the less in more approach with skin editing, allowing the natural beauty of the subject to shine through whilst removing the most obvious imperfections (or those deemed as imperfections by the public). My retouch services can be acquired here @ The Brand Institute.

If you would like to stay in touch with me please feel free to follow any of my social feeds, alternately use my contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
