"The first time I watched an image come to life in the dark room, I was mesmerized. Now after all this time and even with the digital workflow, I still get that same excitement to see my images after a shoot." David's love of image capture lead him to the radio, television & film department at The University of North Texas. He earned a Bachelor of Arts & Science. In addition to shootings stills, he began his career directing commercials and music videos. He soon became one of the top visionaries for labels such as Dreamworks, Universal, Curb, Warner Brothers, Capitol and Sony records. Abbott has a longstanding reputation for creating visually dynamic images and getting the best out of his subjects. David has always been fiscally responsible and tries to squeeze every ounce of production value out of every shoot. He is constantly lighting sets in the studio and shooting his unique style of bouncing sunlight to illuminate his subjects. Abbott says, "I love shoot days. I never take for granted how much I enjoy lighting and composing images with my camera and I most enjoy working with creative people". Abbott has produced and directed an independent feature film and does occasional keynote speeches. Abbott is the Director and DP for the hit tv series "The Song" where he shoots some of the greatest artists of all time, like Jewel, Ne-Yo, 3 Doors Down, Train, Brain McKnight, Kenny Loggins, Darious Rucker, Carly Pierce and Styx. Abbott is also the Producer/Director of "Big Kenny's Crank It Up Garage", airing on the Circle Network.
