I love you so much and cannot wait to see what the future brings.

David! Thank you so much for letting me be the model for your dramatic sports workshop! It was a blast working with you and the other photographers. I was so comfortable in front of everyone thanks to you and you are so easy to work with. There’s always something fun to try, especially when there’s water involved! Can’t wait until I can be part of the next workshop!

I have worked with David several times since I have started modeling and he has helped me to grow so much as a model! He really works with you on learning and is supportive and understanding with every step of the way!! He is very easy to work with and the other photographers that he works with on occasion are absolutely wonderful as well!!
One of my Top Choices!!

I had the opportunity to work with David recently when he was in Southern California. After seeing his portfolio I knew I was going to get some awesome images, but I could have never expected what I got! David was very warm and friendly and allowed me to use my creative ideas in junction with his own to produce one of my best pictures yet! I look forward to working with him again in the future, even if it means flying out to Pontiac, Michigan! (Sarah Zumbro MM# 69944)

I modeled for Dave Birdsong in October 2009 and he is by far the most talented photographer I have ever worked with. He understood my experience level and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the shoot. He was very patient and gave me free reign on what I wanted to get out of the photos. Working with him was a very enjoyable experience and he is a super sweet guy! There is not a single bad things I could say about this man...he knows what looks good and he intends to bring the best out of anyone he works with. I hope we continue to work together because he is someone I can fully trust with any of my modeling needs. Fantastic photographer! (Brittany MM# 1333613)
