About David Johnston "the artist"
When I started my business in 1987, I aspired to produce the finest photography I was capable of without compromise.I have never regretted that decision and neither have my clients.
Quality does not go out of style.
My name is David Johnston, and capturing wonderful family memories is what I've devoted my
life to. I'm a professional family photographer, but more than that, I'm just like you.... I'm a
family person. I started out taking photographs of landscapes - just for fun. Then I started taking photographs of people . My heart was filled with emotion as I captured these priceless memories for families like yours! I knew there was no questions that this was what I was meant to do, and what I WANTED to do for the rest of my life.
I discovered that incredible emotions could be conveyed and remembered through fine portraiture. At that moment, my life changed forever. First, your child takes his or her first step. Next, learns to ride a bike. Later, gets a driver's license... Graduates from high school... Gets married ...Starts a family of his or her own. These are precious times, and although things will change, this moment never has to slip from your memory What we wouldn't give to be able to go back in time and capture our family's closeness. That's one of the reasons I became a professional photographer. I want to help other families hold onto their family memories forever and never regret having a family portrait done. It should go beyond showing just a view of the face. It should reveal who we are as a person. Anyone with a camera can take a "picture", but it takes a special degree of sensibility to create an image that stirs the emotion of the viewer.
This is the goal I have for everyone who lays, sits, crawls or stands before my camera - to bring out the inner beauty and personality in each of us. It might mean showing the closeness of family, the bonding between mother and child, the innocence of childhood or the purity of a newborn baby.
The key to the success of your portrait lies in spending time, prior to the photography session, talking about your need, your desires, your fears and your objectives. The more prepared you are for your session, the easier it will be for you to be relaxed, look better and receive from us a portrait you will be proud to own or give as a gift.
