Clients inspire me every day. After 30 years, I still love facing new challenges and creating solutions for people. I love what I do! – David
David uses light to highlight the details of machined steel for the aerospace industry or to provide shape and illustrate grain in the wooden leg of a finely constructed chair.
He engages his subjects to bring out that enthusiastic, caring expression or the twinkle in their eye as they lean slightly into the camera.
A successful image is not created in a burst of light at 1/60th of a second. It is manufactured over time through conversation, with attention to details, and a depth of photography experience.
David earned his Bachelor of Applied Arts in Photographic Arts from Ryerson University and his Master of Education from Nipissing University. He is a participating member of Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) with a Craftsman of Photographic Arts (CPA) designation awarded by winning entries in national competitions, earning accreditation in Annual Report, Commercial, Editorial, Portrait and Environmental Wedding Photography and by volunteering with PPOC.
They built a home studio on a 5-acre property in Kitchener, Ontario where they first went digital in 1998. David has taught photography part-time at several Ontario colleges including introductory courses, studio product and portrait, Photoshop, and the history of photography. He has exhibited and sold his art and landscape photography in Quebec and Ontario.

“David is a true professional who has mastered his craft. I have had many, many photo sessions over the years, this was by far my best experience. He is a Master and he will up-level your look, your feel, and your confidence.”
“David is a pleasure to work with. He is very reliable, patient, courteous, and has an eye for quality. His work is taking our corporate image and the strength of our brand to a new level.”
“David is a miracle worker behind the lens. I don’t consider myself the least bit photogenic but he made me feel completely at ease as we went through a variety of poses. The end result was an amazing collection of photos that reflect my spirit and I have the most amazing headshot. For the first time ever, I like pictures of myself.”
“David McCammon is a professional photographer.We asked David to photograph our staff and board of directors for our annual report. We had a tight deadline. We had changes…The art director wanted a background change for the people shots…No problem…in a day…no problem…and of course we needed everyone to look animated and engaging… Lots of professionals could light the shots well and have good technical shots…but David has the rare knack of really engaging people so they come alive in his shots…Thanks David…You helped make our very well designed annual report come alive.”
“David is Passionate About his Work He accepts a challenge and engages with his subject, no matter where you ask him to go. It’s obvious that photography is not just a job to David; it really is his calling.”
“I have hired David as a professional photographer on more than one occasion. He took all the Navtech Executive profile photos on a variety of occasions with great consistency. David was always prepared, professional and personable and the end result was very well received by the subjects. I will certainly make use of David’s talents again.”
