"In the end, what matters is what did the photograph do for YOU... not me."
-David Hungate, Photographer
I held my first 35mm camera when my neighbor Steve Raeford (he was a professional photographer) let me play in his studio. I was hooked. The lenses and lights, the smell of the darkroom and the magic of an image being created on a piece of paper. I knew what I wanted my life to be. I was 14.
After heading off to the University of Oklahoma to learn about being a real photographer, I landed my first full-time job at the NBC station in Roanoke, Virginia. I covered all the basics of local news- accidents, fires, City Hall and courts. I was soon promoted to Chief Photographer. It wasn't long before I was offered a job in Washington, D.C. at Potomac Television.
Working for Potomac exposed me to big-time news gathering and broadcasters from around the world. The BBC, Le Cinq, TV Tokyo and many local stations from across the U.S. were clients. And from there, I went to NBC News.
I was assigned to The Capitol covering both The House and Senate. The Supreme Court. Federal Court in DC. And The White House. Along the way, I have been blessed to have my work noticed and have received a few awards, including a nomination for an Emmy.
But my passion has always been with still photography. Upon leaving TV, I began Dominion Images Photography. I have and continue to work for Fortune 500 companies (Merrill Lynch, Kroger, UPS, Hilton, Chick-fil-a and others) as a commercial photographer. My editorial work appears in various newspapers, national and international magazines and websites.
What does this mean to you? I have experience. And for me to be a professional this long means I keep current and innovative, staying up-to-date with the latest technology and the best of trends. Much in today's photography is trendy and in a matter of months, will looks as dated as your parent's high school yearbook. Stay away from trendy and be a trend-setter.
From a simple business portrait to corporate annual reports to marketing and advertising, let's talk to see if there is a way Dominion Images Photography can help with your photography needs.
In the competitive marketplace, it's good business to trust experience and talent. Make sure your business is treated professionally. By a professional.
Editorial photography is at the heart of all my work. From regional magazines to national and international newspapers, I continue to cover the news.
How you look isn't as important as who you are and how you feel. I capture the best of you so you can show that to the world.
A drone camera platform is an amazing tool. If you need those images, make sure you hire a licensed, insured and experienced photographer.
