Founder and owner, Dave Thompson grew up in Michigan with a camera in his hands. For over 25 years Dave has worked on both sides of the lens. From his tenure as a communications and ad executive to his independent photography studio, he has produced and managed a wide-range of campaigns, shoots and events throughout the US and Canada. Thompson photography specializes in capturing imagery and light in its highest resolution.
Back in the day, Dave was a contributing photographer to the Michigan State University annual, studied film at the University of London in the 1980s, and throughout the 1990s, he managed national ad agencies to produce full-scale location shoots across North America for a leading motorsports brand among other clients.
"I think working as a photographer - and at times as a client/producer - has given me valuable 360-degree perspective of the whole artistic & business process.
Today I'm fortunate to shoot for a growing list of amazing clients including architects, designers and builders, as well as clients in financial services, healthcare, events, entertainment and more.
I can still say: I've never had a bad day with a camera in my hands."
