Your Bio

"The greatest photos are those that tell stories; both about the person in front of the lens, as well as about the person behind it."

"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer."
-Ansel Adams

"The camera for an artist is just another tool. It is no more mechanical than a violin if you analyze it. Beyond the rudiments, it is up to the artist to create art, not the camera."
-Brett Weston

I'm just a happy, lucky guy trying to leave the world a better place than I found it. These days, I'm part photographer, musician, and physician. I spend most of my time behind a guitar, a scalpel/stethoscope or a lens, and spend my remaining free time in the company of my wonderful family and friends and involved in Jewish communal work. I'm currently only shooting weddings or events for good friends, but don't hesitate to send me an email if you're interested in headshots or ordering prints or purchasing rights of my commercial work.

For those photography nerds interested, my main equipment is as follows:

Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 7D
Canon 17-40 f/4L
Canon 24-105 f/4L IS
Canon 28mm f/1.8
Canon 50mm f/1.4
Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro
Canon 70-200 f/4L IS
Canon Speedlite 430EX
I use exclusively B+W filters (and only UV/Haze and circular polarizers), shoot in sRGB and RAW, and edit in Lightroom and Photoshop on a MacBook Pro with two external monitors.

All photos are © 2003-2012 David Berman. I can be reached at daveberman at gmail dot com.

If you'd like to download an image, most of my images are available to download full-size for free. However, I'm a strong believer in the "pay-it-forward" principle - don't sell my photos, claim them as your own, or perform edits without first asking me. I certainly wouldn't do that to your hard-earned artistic creations especially if you let me reproduce them for free, so please don't do that to mine. Given Facebook's terms of service and the potential for losing exclusive digital ownership of my images, I don't post any of my commercial work there - please ask me before putting any of my pictures on Facebook.
