Dave Bentley Photography | About Me

A little about the guy behind the lens.....


Photography has always been a hobby of mine. My start can be traced back to my teenage years with 35mm and disposable cameras, and college, when I dabbled with film development in the darkroom. Since then, I've become heavily self-taught, thanks to the accessibility of tutorials and other resources online.

​I've been lucky to work on some really cool projects, collaborate with some wonderful people, and enjoyed every single moment. Each project I take on gives me the opportunity to learn, and try/experience something new.





One of the coolest projects, and highest honors has been that my work was selected to presented as a gift to Akie Abe, the First Lady of Japan, wife of Prime Minister Shinzō Abe.
