My name is Dave Chavez.
Photography has always been a passion of mine because it allows me the distinct opportunity to tell a story through the lens of my camera. I follow a very basic principle, which is to seek to understand before I seek to be understood. I love to find the essence of an event, family or person and draw out the story that is wanting to be told. This is what moves me to pick up my camera everyday.
Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you enjoy my portfolio.
