This is a pic of me and my good friend Valerie Whitaker from the Sept. 13th class.. what a blast that class was..


I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed another one of your workshops! Learned a great deal of new information and am anxiously awaiting the opportunity to participate in another one. I was able to capture more great images under your guidance and tutoring and I thank you for the wonderful opportunity to photograph with great models and with other photographers in the professional environment of your studio.

Thanks again for all your help at your classes.
You definitely have a knack for making your models and students feel at ease and create a perfect learning environment. You explain everything very well and back up your statements with the reason why. That is a big plus for me. Ashley was wonderful to work with today."

“Thanks for an excellent workshop. I left your studio a better photographer, and with images that have instantly become some of my all time favorites. I look forward to your next workshop.”

My 2007 Pictures of the Day







I had the opportunity to work with David recently when he was in Southern California. After seeing his portfolio I knew I was going to get some awesome images, but I could have never expected what I got! David was very warm and friendly and allowed me to use my creative ideas in junction with his own to produce one of my best pictures yet! I look forward to working with him again in the future, even if it means flying out to Pontiac, Michigan!

"I modeled for Dave Birdsong in October 2009 and he is by far the most talented photographer I have ever worked with. He understood my experience level and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the shoot. He was very patient and gave me free reign on what I wanted to get out of the photos. Working with him was a very enjoyable experience and he is a super sweet guy! There is not a single bad things I could say about this man...he knows what looks good and he intends to bring the best out of anyone he works with. I hope we continue to work together because he is someone I can fully trust with any of my modeling needs. Fantastic photographer!"

David Birdsong is an absolute pleasure to work with. If any model has the opportunity to work with him you BETTER jump all over it. He is funny, flexible and most importantly reliable. You will get images quickly and the end result is always AMAZING!!!! I look forward to future shoots with him!!!
