David Burgess

Ada, MI, United States

I am a professional photographer living and working in Grand Rapids, MI. I specialize in portraiture with dramatic studio lighting and my favorite subjects include environmental portraits, and movement and dance. Prior to launching my professional photography career, I had a career in marketing with several local firms, and I was a co-founder of a successful nationwide fundraising firm. Professional photography is my third and favorite career. I have been happily married to my wife Carol for 36 years. We have three great kids, two cool sons-in-law, and two adorable grandsons. I love meat loaf. Clowns creep me out. I like to wear loud socks. I think about photography pretty much all the time.
