about our photography
we are not a normal photographic studio, and we don’t shoot images like a normal photographic studio. we shoot big. we shoot adventure. we shoot saturated colors and strong compositions. if you want images that stand out from the rest, we are the studio you want.
do you want a basic head shot against a grey background? we can do that… you can get that anywhere else too. do you want a head shot that jumps out and gets noticed? do you want a picture that says something about you, something more than just what you look like? then we are your only choice.
dave koch has been an aspiring photographer since his teens. before he left high school, he had shot many shorts- and a full feature film!- on super 8mm celluloid. always one to experiment, he was known to try all kinds of strange things to express his vision, from lighting with flash lights to vaseline painted directly on the lens.
after attending college at california state university at northridge, and spending a summer as a camera assistant at the american film institute in hollywood, mr. koch took a job as a news cameraman at a cbs affiliate station. for ten years, dave worked at raising his skills while shooting and editing film and video on a daily basis.
in the years since, mr. koch has focused on photography for his own pleasure. his love of photography has never waned, and he continues to work and improve his art. known for his dynamic images and bold use of color, his images are nothing if not striking. beneath those bold colors, you will find a structure that draws the viewer back to these images. there is always a mystery in the images, something waiting to be discovered. his personal work continues to win many local and national awards, including best of show and people choice at the utah state fair in 2015.
