Dave Doeppel is an award-winning Professional Photographer who is based in Los Angeles, California. Back in the 70s, he developed an unwavering passion for photography as he was rolling and developing 35mm film. He hasn’t looked back ever since.
Throughout his creative career, Dave has helped countless fellow photographers hone their craft. He has also served as a Speaker at numerous National Photo Conferences, including but not limited to Shutterfest and Imaging U.S.A.
Today, Dave is on a mission to educate emerging photographers on the ins and outs of the art of photography. Ultimately, he strives to inspire as many aha moments as possible. His absolute favorite aspect of photography is the ability to capture unique moments in time that you can revisit time and time again. Dave draws inspiration from creative minds like Ansel Adams, Alberto Vargas and Gil Elvgren.
Furthermore, Dave holds a multitude of certifications, including a Photographic Craftsman Degree, Certified Professional Photographer (Cr.Photog., CPP) and an Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom and Photoshop.
When he doesn’t have a camera in hand, Dave can be found boating and traveling with his wife Regina, or playing with his best friends his rescue dogs. An avid student of life, he strongly believes that we never stop learning on our journeys and we should make it a point to learn new things every single day.
