David Kennedy scouted me at my gym in Hawaii and was very persistent. Today I am glad that he was. After a test shoot, David announced that he saw me working for a company like Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister or Southern Tide. He was correct. I was soon flown to South Carolina where I spent days shooting an ad campaign for Southern Tide which he had negotiated. I was featured in four full-page ads for a lot of money. Other jobs followed and I had great fun working on runways. David not only got me a great agent, but he introduced me to talented photographers who took more pictures for my portfolio to augment David's. As a photographer David is very intuitive, patient, instructive and has a talent for putting models at ease. He took exceptional pictures of me and I learned to trust his judgement. Not only is David talented and driven, he has honor and vision. I am very grateful to him and DPK Development. And I did make it to Abercrombie after all.

David is the industrious, adaptive, talented recruiter behind DPK Development. He is personable and creative and can out source the competition with natural ability. He is very well educated and is capable of writing/editing just about anything and his creative eye can see an image before he captures it in a photograph. I endorse David's ethics and skills on the professional front and also wish to mention that he is an advocate of non profit organizations.
