Hello and welcome to my website, having been a Commercial and Portrait Photographer for over 40 years I've finally made time to pursue my love of nature and it's beauty. If you're here I hope you're enjoying a glimpse into my passion of Photography and the wonderful world around us.
Dave Huntsman, M. Photog., Cr., F-ASP, KFD
His love of photography is visible in every image he creates.
He has had images exhibited at Disney's Epcot Center and proudly displayed and cherished in the homes and offices of many collectors.
Dave's artistic and technical excellence have earned him the Kodak "Gallery Elite" Award, deemed to be the best Gallery Award Image in the world in 2015. He has also received honors for Kentucky "Best of Show" and "Photographer of the Year" eight times. He is one of only two photographers to receive the Kodak Gallery Award in all four categories (Portrait, Commercial, Illustrative and Wedding) in a single year. Dave has earned 21 Kodak Gallery Awards in his career. He feels his involvement in photographic competitions at the local, state, national and international level has been the key to his growth and evolution as a photographer. His involvement in competition has not only been as an entrant but also as a juror, jury chairman and vice chairman of the Photographic Exhibition Committee of PPA. These opportunities have allowed him to evaluate and enjoy some of the finest images from the top image makers around the world.
Mr. Huntsman is a Fellow of the American Society of Photographers as well as the Kentucky Professional Photographers Association and holds the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman Degrees with the Professional Photographers of America. He is also a past President of the Kentucky Professional Photographers Association. He has received the PPA "National Award" for his service to the profession of photography.
It is Dave's belief that diverse interests keep the mind sharp and creativity flowing. He not only enjoys travel and doing landscape photography but has many other hobbies such as Scuba and Cave Diving, Vintage Motorcycle Roadracing, Model Railroading, Woodworking, and Cowboy Action Shooting. He and his wife Lucie also recently began enjoying the RV lifestyle. They are blessed with a talented daughter, son in law and five grandchildren.
