ABOUT DAVID WILLIAMS:  PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER 


Although David is EXCLUSIVELY a corporate and commercial photographer
, he got his start doing consumer photography and photojournalism in the early 80's. David received his first 35mm camera for Christmas in 1981 while still in High School. In June 1982, David photographed his first PAID wedding. David was also paid to photograph High School sports for the local newspaper while still in High School.

Formal Training: In the Summer of 1982, while still in High School, David attended a Summer Photojournalism program at UNC Chapel Hill. In 1983/84, David began working with a photographer that did editorial work for major publications as well as stock photography work which was thriving in those days. David attended Randolph Community College in the mid-80's which has a long standing reputation as one of the best photography programs in the State of North Carolina. Soon after leaving RCC, David started his own business doing work in the College and University arena for schools like Wake Forest University as well as Family Portraits and Weddings out of David and Brenda's studio in Raleigh which was within 2 miles of  the current location. As previously mentioned, David is now exclusively a corporate and commercial photographer and has been for several years. ( See Client List )

Passion for People Photography: David has always had a passion for photographing people. He later transitioned into his current core area of photography focusing exclusively in the corporate arena which includes large events, corporate photography for company websites and trade-shows, commercial photography, executive headshots, headshots for professional use and other non-consumer photography. David has photographed thousands of headshots in his career including many company Company President's and/or Executive Staff of multi-million and multi-billion dollar companies.

About Brenda: Professional Retoucher - Lightroom / Photoshop

Brenda Williams

Brenda Williams

Brenda Williams (David's Wife) is one of our in house photo editors. Although Lightroom and Photoshop are the two primary software programs that she uses.

Brenda is truly passionate about photo editing which is why David and Brenda make such a great team. David loves to be behind the camera shooting and Brenda loves the post production editing. With David and Brenda working together as a team, it allows David to do more shooting since he does not edit his own images: Many photographers do both the shooting and the editing. However, editing is truly an art within itself and with Brenda's passion for editing, it works out well to have a husband and wife team that can work together serving clients.

No matter how good a photographer is, post production editing is a necessity in today's digital age. Clients should be cautious of any photographer not doing at least minimal post production editing. With David and Brenda Williams, clients do not have to worry about the shooting or the editing because both are covered by two dedicated professionals.

David and Brenda started working together in photography in 1988 and were married in July 1989.
