David Guy Maynard is an award winning, internationally published photographer producing work in Fashion, Lifestyle, Glamour, Event, Fine Art, Nature/Macro, Marine, Astrophotography, and General Commercial photography. A true “Jack Of All Trades” (or photographic genres in this case).
Although engaged in photography since his early youth, David only plunged into full time work in photography around 2004. In 2007 he was awarded the inaugural “Emerging Pro of the Year” award by Digital Photo Pro Magazine, Microsoft and Epson. It has been a virtual whirlwind since then.
Because I shoot in multiple genres, I am always on the move. Even in the studio I am often off tripod and hustling. The Spider Holster has been a game changer for me. Having the camera safe and easily accessible, while eliminating the stress and fatigue of the strap around my neck is amazing.
David’s work has been seen in numerous magazines and publications around the world including Maxim (OL), Popular Photography, PDN Magazine, Rangefinder, Digital Photo Pro, and many more. His images have been featured on respected web based business sites, international advertising campaigns, in galleries, and exhibits.
The hand strap is also a favorite tool of mine. Out in the field, I am often perched in some crazy places to get my shots. The confidence in grip and additional steadiness that the strap gives me is very appreciated!
While many of his images are instantly recognizable, many of you may also know him through his educational endeavors, which include speaking and live shoots at the PhotoPlus Expo, WPPI, Imaging USA, Photoshop TV, and hundreds of his own photo workshops throughout the United States. Of course we cannot forget to mention his DVD on location photography featuring beautiful bikini models on island beaches. The “Location Lighting With Speed Lights” DVD has sold in over 45 countries, and continues to entertain and educate fellow photographers and hobbyists around the world.
