David discovered photography as a teenager and has been photographing professionally for over thirty years. After graduating from Ryerson University with a photography degree and student loans at 21 percent, he discovered that studios were going out of business. His first photography job was at a huge studio in Toronto, producing flyers for Sears, Eatons, Canadian Tire, Clinique, and others.
David then worked as a corporate photographer for an international insurance company. These two key learning opportunities led to the creation of David McCammon Photography, a business he runs with his wife Julia. Their studio became well known for wedding and portrait photography throughout the region. David photographed products, food, staff, and stores for Zehrs Markets for over fifteen years. He has developed enduring relationships while photographing for numerous businesses and corporations.
The McCammons built a home studio on a five-acre property in Kitchener, Ontario, and first went digital in 1998. David has taught at several Ontario colleges, including Introductory Photography, Studio Product and Portrait Photography, Photoshop, and the History of Photography. He has exhibited and sold his art and landscape photography in Quebec and Ontario. David McCammon Photography has been a great success in Waterloo Region for over twenty-five years.
