Hi! My name is David Fernandes, I'm a photographer, graphic designer and videographer based in Brighton, East Sussex, UK. I'm also a Nikon Pro Specialist. I take on all kinds of work along side my personal projects including commercial clients.
I cover all kinds of campaigns from stop motion animation to print ads, events, head shots and product photography.
I am a self confessed photography nerd that is happiest when creating something new across multiple mediums.  I love finding new challenges so that I might learn something new. I started photography by picking up my dads old Kodak box brownie as it was pretty much the only way for me to be creative other than drawing! It was a hobby that I only took seriously once I picked up some studio lights and medium format camera for a bargain price. I've been playing around with lighting ever since. I graduated from the London College of Printing  having earned a BaHons in Media Production Design. College helped me develop story telling. While I was there I was able to teach other students studio photography and location lighting techniques. I have since been freelancing, taking on work for a variety of companies, covering portraiture, corporate promotional videos and  headshots. Throughout I have developed my personal projects which can be seen here.
