Senior Style Guide, an industry leading organization for Senior Photographers, selected David Beckham Photography as one of the Top 100 Senior Photographers in the country 2015.
David's photography has scored "Merit" multiple times by the Professional Photographers of America.
David's work has been published twice in Shutter Magazine, once in 2015, and he was asked to write an article in 2016.
His photos and work have been published Senior Style Guide's monthly magazine and in their on line blog.
David was chosen as a speaker at Shutterfest 16, to teach his lighting techniques, share his knowledge of lighting, posing and talk about his elite Senior Model program. Shutterfest is a national convention in St Louis that is attended by over 2500 photographers.
David considered one of the best at his use of Off Camera Flash outdoors and has other professional photographers coming from all over the country to learn from him at his workshops that he holds 4-5 times a year.
The window light in the studio is phenomenal! but that's just where it starts. David is an expert in lighting and other professionsals come from all over the country to learn lighting the way he does. Your photos will have that same expertise and attention to detail.
Its not a coincidence that the studio is located in the center of Pickerington's Old Village. It has been the perfect backdrop for hundreds of prints and gallery wraps hanging in homes in central Ohio. Even if you aren't from Pickerington, you will love the photographs we take there.
The Windows of my studio provide a distinct landmark from the outside. They create a magical shooting area om the inside. It can almost be mystical light in sight bringing out a spectacular innocent beauty.
There a wonderful places to splash it up a little with your big day. The creeks have plenty of nature around them for spectacular shots. There are waterfalls in the area too. If you want an urban setting the fountains in the city make a great place for a unique finish to your Senior Portrait Experience.
If sports is part of your life... it should be part of your Senior Portrait Experience. Lets get creative with action shots, cool locations, intense lighting and reflective images.
Summer means sunshine, and cute outfits, fashion looks in the city, and playing in a fountain, with long days and warm nights. Lets take advantage of all of that in your Senior Portrait Experience
Fashions are something you wear.
Style is something you are.
Show off Your Style!
I photograph guys too. We can be as creative as you want to be with who you are. We'll shoot your sports, hobbies, and style. We'll go the places you want to go and you may be surprised at how fun it actually is. If getting your photograph taken isn't your thing... ask about my "Because my mother wants me to get my senior photos taken package"
White is the most versatile color to photograph. It symbolizes youth, beauty, purity and a new start. Isn't it the perfect color for Senior Portraits?
You can add a Season to your package. If your shoot was in the summer but you wanted fall Colors you can do it! If you love the snow, add a snow session. Love the spring flowers? - Let's make it part of your Senior Portrait Experience
Snow makes for some gorgeous photos, fuzzy hoods, snowflakes in your hair, pretty dresses, it all works great. You can add a snow session to your Senior Portrait Experience!
Spring flowers are the most sought after for pretty photographs. Chances are you already had your senior portraits taken. That doesn't mean you can't ad them to your Senior Portrait Experience!
Fall is the most popular time of the year for Senior Portraits, the colors are beautiful, the temps are perfect for comfortable outfits. We'll find fall colors from September until the end of November but schedule that shoot early. You don't want to miss this.
There is some amazing "Art" hidden away in some dark places in the city. It's dynamic, creative and beautiful. There is almost never profanity or vulgarity and it is always changing. It makes for an interesting back drop to your senior portrait experience.
The city is full of amazing places to be photographed. The adventure is just as exciting as the photographs you will get. Let's make it part of your Senior Portrait Experience
German Village is known for it's historic architecture, cobblestone streets, unique houses, beautiful gardens, great food, and friendly residents. Your Senior Portrait Experience can be part of it too.
These 36 Beautiful Young Ladies, worked very hard, wore 108 gorgeous gowns from Be Social Dress Boutique, Fashion Story, Gowntastic and Uniquely Yours and Raised over $8000 to purchase food to serve the homeless 12 times this year At Faith Mission. UGH I can't thank you all enough for your support of these young people and what we are doing. . It blows me away how much support we received. Thank You. Thank You!
Each year my friend Nathan at Prodigy Cinema films my event. I am always amazed by his work.

The Senior Model program is for energetic and out-going senior girls, of the 2017 and 2018 classes.

You will get a great Senior Portrait Experience and you will belong to a exclusive group of other Senior Models that will get plenty of opportunities be photographed, serve the community, earn NHS hours, be in promotional ads and maybe even get paid to help with other photo projects. You can do as little or as much as you like. Some seniors just like to get a great deal on the best packages and that is alright too! You will have an unbelievable amount of photos to choose your final package from as your portfolio grows each time you get involved with the extra shooting opportunities.
Your time as a Senior Model will start as soon as I receive your signed contract and $200 deposit toward your Senior Portrait Package. We will do your first shoot with you soon after signing.

Your second official senior session will be scheduled between June 1st and July 30th. The balance of the package will be due at that time.
Other Opportunities: You are invited to stop buy before for photos for EVERY Prom or Homecoming Dance until you graduate!

Editorial Photography tells a story. You will see editorial shoots with models which are more about selling an emotion than a fashion or product. It doesn't look posed, and appears more casual. It doesn't mean serious either, real smiles and laughter and conversation work well in Editorial shoots. When I shoot them though every detail will be covered, like perfect lighting and clarity, locations that add to the story and the little things that make your senior portrait experience stand out.
Any photograph can easily be converted to the classic look and feel of Black & White. But some outfits and looks are meant to be photographed that way. You will get a couple B&Ws with your session and we will specifically take more if requested.
Wildflowers are the most popular Session Extra and can be included in all of the packages except the Basic. There are flowers and blossoms 9 months out of the year in this area and there are medows and fields of tall grasses that make for keepsake images that look great on your wall.
David Beckham Senior Models get to participate in some fun and unique photoshoots. Since SOOOO many Senior Models owned Jeeps we had to do a Jeep Group Shoot!
