Don’t Forget to Pack a Photographer! | Vacation Travel Photography

Have I mentioned how interested in doing this I am?!?

I would prefer not to actually be packed into your suitcase, but next time you book your dream vacation or weekend getaway, consider hiring a professional photographer (i.e me) to spend a day, two, or even the whole week with you and your family, documenting your journey through the beautiful and wonderful places you go!

Imagine standing at the top of Haleakala in Maui, Hawaii, being wowed by the expansive view of Mt. Cook New Zealand, taming fire and ice in Iceland, tasting some of the world’s finest wines in Napa & Sonoma California, making friends with the towering Redwoods along the Avenue of the Giants, horseback riding the California coast, gazing over panoramic European sea cliffs or taking a trip back in time to rural Ireland, spending relaxing days on the sand or surfing by the beach, or being in total awe of the expansive views throughout the City of San Francisco

Now imaging yourself living these amazing experiences, captured in all of these images through the eyes of a professional photographer; exciting idea isn’t it? Consider that and send me a note next time you start planning your trip. Not only do I have travel advice, but I’d love to be there to capture these timeless moments for you, your new husband or wife (can we say honeymoon?), and/or your family. For more information, read the story recently published on the Wall Street Journal, and see the video embedded below Or link to the video on WSJ here:

 

To get a sense if we’d be a good fit in working together, you can view my Portfolios here, and I can be reached via email at info {at} nialldavid.com to start discussing your custom vacation photography package. I look forward to hearing from you!

Whitney Nichole and Keeley Valentino | Pacific Northwest ‘Tour on the Edge of Glory’

Throughout the first half of July, I had the pleasure of wearing many hats on Whitney Nichole and Keely Valentino‘s aptly dubbed ‘Tour on the Edge of Glory.’ Part tour manager, part roadie, part driver, part photographer/videographer & documentarian, and altogether psyched to be on the road in the name of music for a few weeks! We covered a large swath of the Pacific Northwest, making stops in Redding, CA; Eugene, OR; Portland, OR; Tacoma, WA, Seattle, WA and Walla Walla, WA.

You can read all about our adventures on Whitney and Keeley’s blog on the edge of glory – http://whitneyandkeeley.blogspot.com/. A few images from the tour:

Special thanks to these wonderful ladies for taking me along on this fantastic voyage. This road trip/tour was a blast. I’m very much looking forward to see when the official news comes out about the rumored Pac NW fall tour!

Whitney Nichole and Keeley Valentino Rain or Shine Tour Photographs

Two fantastic singer-songwriters ask you to make fun images for their upcoming tour. Schedules are busy and one day when we were hanging out we decide we have 1 hour to plan, find a location, setup, and make 20 images. If you’re lucky you end up with what we have here:

Always a pleasure to photograph Whitney Nichole and Keeley Valentino. Amazing songwriters, performers and great, fun loving people. Catch them on a stop in a city near you in February 2011!
