Writing and photography, two means for telling stories, for informing audiences, for reaching the hearts of others. They both require a unique set of skills, and yet writing and photography parallel each other in fascinating ways.

My name is Dave Pidgeon. I've worked 20 years as a newspaper journalist, a freelance magazine writer, a corporate spokesman, and as a professional portrait photographer. Today, I own a super niche photography business called Creative Sports Photography, providing a better portrait experience for athletes.

I also travel with my wife and our three sons, gathering a collection of images I'm eager to share. Here at Pidgeon's-Eye View, I strive to help writers advance their photography skills, to take you beyond the technical and into inside the mindset of an image maker so you can begin to elevate.
