Based formerly in Waikiki Beach, Hawaii and now in San Diego, DPK DEVELOPMENT  is an exclusive mother model management company committed to developing, training, placing and promoting top talent to the fashion industry.  DPK DEVELOPMENT was founded and registered with the DCCA in Hawaii in 2005 by David Patrick Kennedy, a former model, as an alternative to fee-charging  management companies and their expensive photographers. DPK is composed of a male modeling division, a female modeling division, a marketing division, and a commercial and editorial photography division.

DPK has booking connections in most major US cities and around the world.  It places talent with modeling agencies in San Diego, New York, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Paris, Milan, Miami and other major industrial cities. DPK also submits talent directly to renowned fashion photographers such as Bruce Weber and Mario Testino for commercial exhibition.  The company is a scout for Abercrombie & Fitch.


Founder and President David Kennedy attended Columbia University in New York and graduated summa cum laude from Michigan State University.  He has studied abroad at Oxford and attended law school in Boston with a special interest in entertainment law. 

Kennedy has been successful in placing models with Southern Tide, Reebok, Armani, Abercrombie & Fitch, Revlon, Men's Fitness, and many other fashion brands.



The mission statement of DPK DEVELOPMENT may be summed up in three words:
Professional, Protective, and Proactive.
