Hi, I'm Dave Likes.
Documenting a child's life growing up though the lens of my camera, I still get a little emotional when doing their high school senior (or family) picture all these years later!
I'm not your typically photographer for hire. To me it is about a life long relationship as many of my clients were first my close friends. Because of that I worked extra hard to learn all I could about portrait photography, studying with top instructors in the field. As a Certified Professional you can count on me to capture your family's legacy.
Having had the loss of my father some years ago, I'm grateful that I made several professional portraits of him to remember him by! And therefore know how important photographs can be. I want to capture those memories for you and others as well!
I take the time to get to know my clients and listen to what they want in their photographs. I've been told that I'm good with people and that has helped me to teach Auto Repair in my past career.
Trained in Engineering and Automotive Technology, I left a corporate job with Toyota Motor Distributors to pursue my dream of having my own business. After 8 years of doing Weddings, I switched to Portraits specializing In Family Portraits. I'm excited to have become a Certified Professional Photographer in 2014.
I feel I have a unique style as I use the family home or outside location as a backdrop. Please give me a call so I can answer any questions you might have? Thanks! (513) 445-9535
