Got a travel tale to tell? DSP is here to help!

DSP TRAVEL & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

"Life is a journey, not a destination."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

What are your  travel / lifestyle photography needs?

If you're in the travel industry, then you are probably aware that every customer or client you serve is in the process of creating and living their own adventure -- a story, per se, that once started with a vision. DSP will help you to  define that vision for them by piquing their imagination with enticing travel imagery. It's your chance to be the "guide" in their journey.

Publications

David is a seasoned world traveler whose award-winning photographs have been widely published. His work is authentic, providing a spirit of place no matter the destination. 

Tourism Industry

David has collaborated with both tour companies and tourism bureaus, from Morocco to Asheville. His imagery invites the viewer into the experience.

Hospitality Industry

If your hotel, restaurant, or bar wants to attract patrons, then there is no better way to differentiate your business in your marketing than to utilize evocative photos. The comfort, food, and drinks are up to you!

Stock Imagery

What you see on this DSP website is only a fraction of the travel and lifestyle photography that David has in his archives. If you have a specific stock image need, please get in touch.

Jim B. - Agency Owner

Lake Havasu City, Arizona

"Prior to my retirement, my ad agency in Philadelphia, PA (Bodine Marketing Group Inc.) hired Dave to go to Costa Rica and take photos of a resort that we were re-branding. Wow! He developed a wonderful relationship with the owners of the resort and took amazing photos that showed off not only the strong aspects of the resort, but also of the beauty of nature found there."

Every picture tells a story...

Does your publication or business have a unique tale to tell?

DSP is here to help, but in order to do so in an efficient and effective manner David will require a few specific details from you. In order to mitigate a prolonged exchange of emails to gather information about your project, David has designed an easy-to-use "project form" for his prospective clients to fill out to initiate the conversation, and help him to provide pricing details.

How many words is a picture worth?

Well, that depends on how powerful the picture is.

When attention spans are limited, and competition is at an all-time high to pique the interest of the average internet surfer or website visitor, a picture or series of pictures may be worth far more than "a thousand words".

If a story is being told, and nobody notices, does it make any impact?
