This month we had the opportunity to interview David Acuna of David Acuna Photography. David is a wedding and lifestyle photographer presently working out of Miami, FL but also servicing nation and worldwide clientele. David says…” I remember being 5 or 6 years old, my mom would take me along to the TV station where she used to work. I was captivated by the big cameras and the production behind the scenes. I think cameras have always been a passion. I have also enjoyed looking into the National Geographic’s magazines and always thinking of the adventures and excitements of the photographers behind those images, capturing all those cool shots. Later in my life, I had the opportunity to visit the National Geographic headquarters in Washington DC where I found myself wanting to be a photographer badly. The idea of being able to document time and emotions was becoming extremely fascinating.”
David specializes in weddings, which he says have pretty much all of the attention now but he also shoots fashion, commercial, food, lifestyle, and every now and then he dedicates some time to fine art.
A big thank you to David for taking the time to interview with us!
What or who has inspired you?
I found myself looking into several differnt photographer’s work from time to time. Just to name a few: Ansel Adam, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lik.
National Geographic’s magazines are on the list and as well as various films.
If you could shoot anywhere, where would it be?
The U.K. I found England extremely attractive with such history and landscape. I’d love to shoot a wedding there, it’ll be kind of like a dream come true, I just wish for no rain when it happens.
What is the craziest job you’ve ever shot?
Every time I do a trash the dress session it gets crazy! Lol… but crazy good!
What do you like best about being a photographer?
I like every single aspect of it, to be able to document time on an image is just simply amazing to me, especially those very unique moments that as soon as you see them, you shoot’em and then wonder if nothing like that will ever happen again… I like the technical part of it and at the same time the artistic side.
What is your favorite lens?
That will probably be the Canon 70-200mm f2.8
What photo editing software do you use most?
How have Photobook Plus Albums helped your business?
I like its versatility, finishing and over all look… this book very well can be used not only as a wedding album but also as an engagement book and more. I like the fact that it has different types of paper options, different great covers, a wide variety of leather, colors and texture and it gives my business the right attitude, uniqueness.
