"David K Bruner-Photographer in San Francisco’s Central Market Street district, specializes in HEADSHOTS & PORTRAITS that are unique, creative, and personalized to each individual." I also specialize in books / portfolios for actors & models and I design on line portfolios "digital portfolios". Headshots, portraits & promotional design for musicians and all types of internet photos. I shoot both digital and film, black + white and color. For digital, I use a NIKON D-7100 camera & occasionally my iPhone. I have also used an Olympus & a Panasonic. For film a PENTAX K-1000, Cannon F-1 & an old Polaroid Instant camera. I started photographing people at a very young age using an Instamatic Hawkeye and at the age of 14 started using a super 8 movie camera to create my own sci-fi productions. People are my favorite subjects, always have been. In Chicago, I worked for a production company and modeling agency. I also worked at a studio in Indianapolis. where I produced photographs for billboards in the area for a Diamond Co. I received grants to continue my photographic work. One grant from Art Matters in NY gave me more than a check, they were & still are very helpful to photographic artists living with AIDS. I have a degree in commercial art and won two Addy awards for photography & design while in the advertising industry. Before moving back to San Francisco, I lived in Long Beach freelancing for several magazines including Dot News Magazine Long Beach.

Tell me how you see your photos & yourself so i can style you & your entire image in a way that best suits you, men & woman. I also assist you with clothing and overall styling. I am always looking for interesting people to shoot, diverse, everyday people - people with unique and original tattoos, body shapes and androgynous looks. I am greatly influenced by San Francisco & it's people, Hitchcock, Si-Fi movies & music. I incorporate my photography, computer skills, and graphic arts background and channel it into other areas.

"I am entranced by The City. From the windows of my loft apartment above the heart of Market Street, I observe the pulse of The City. It's people, watching. The random entropy of the street, the recklessness of the cyclist, buses, street cars & people. Weave dangerously together as The City finds balance. This inspired me to create a series of photographs. The joy, innocence of the riders as they ride towards a solution for a greener future."
