Artistic. Vibrant. Beautified — words describing my style of photos. Here's what you're unlikely to see: color muted, heavy on filters, not color realistic — unless you ask me for such. Get the picture? Okay, but who am I?
Aloha. I’m David Marsh, a kauai photographer whose lived a rich life of professional photo and video design. My career began at seventeen after I'd ditched school early to apprentice at Pinewood Film Studios in England, where they make the James Bond films. I was taught to edit 35mm film on flatbeds, which I did until I was 24, when I moved to America, after a lucky break landed me a directing gig—ultra low budget feature films. Not great films but a great training. The fare included “The Lords of Magick” and ”Stormswept,” all told fifteen films. During an industry lull, a friend twisted my arm into doing video and photos of her wedding. That opened the flood gates! Since then I've done thousands of photo sessions, weddings, baby bump, engagements, memorials, and family photos. Today, my professional time is split between professional photography and writing.

Even shooting intimate couples photography Kauai, I feel it's important to identify our stunning island.
Fun, sun, mood, love, passion, playfulness. Real life. In a couples photography Kauai session all our needed.
As a Kauai photographer, I love to get in close when it matters, bearing in mind that not every one wants such a tight close up.
I wrote my first book in 2004. Published by Sea Chest Books, it sold, well, a piddly amount of hardback copies although it did garner some complimentary reviews. Today, I have three novels I'm hopeful of seeing published, two others not yet completed. All YA (young adult) fantasies in contemporary settings.
I would love to be signed by a literary agent.
If you know a literary agent, I'd be happy to trade for a free photo session including creative portraiture editing. I don't mind you test reading first. See Here for pitches on the novels. Or click on "Free" below for full details.
