Craig’s Thoughts On The Art1095 Project
David has a beautiful gift and a natural empathy with the viewer that allows him to create images that feed the spirit and resonate to the very soul.
Along with the emotion of the moment, and an illumination that seems to come from within… there’s sense of truth found in David’s images that speak to the viewer. I believe it to be in fact, a reflection of the very essence of the creator.
Anything You’d Like To Say About David As A Person?
I feel privileged to be part of the circle of friends that make up David’s world, and a true honor to share the craft and passion for image creation that we do. If I were ever to have a personal wish, it would be to be able to have just a fraction of the compassion, sincerity, talent and dedication that I see in what David can bring to his work, his personal imagery and to the people in his life.
David’s Thoughts On Craig
While most photographers are good at 2 or 3 different styles of photography, Craig’s got 10 or 12 in his arsenal. Still, he’s not the braggadocious type that makes it all about himself.
His work is clean, crisp and to the point which is crucial as a commercial and advertising photographer. As a print competition judge, he possesses the ability to communicate quickly and clearly what might help improve an entry.
I’ve watched and seen how he carries himself with a quiet infectious confidence, expressing interest in others and not seeking to focus all the attention on himself. That’s impressive to me.
