1Maybe the years of staring at television monitors on film shoots have had some sort of osmosis effect on me.

Hi, I’m David Lancashire.  In my thirty-year career as an award-winning producer of some of the most memorable advertising campaigns in Disney Parks history, I had the pleasure of working with many of the best directors and cinematographers in the film industry.  On each project, I watched their artistry unfold and it gave me the desire to look through the lens and find my own moments, my own stories.  I think photography is a very personal thing – whether you’re shooting professionally or just for fun.  I’m not a fan of gimmickry.  I love to capture moments and images as my eyes see them.  It’s a very satisfying feeling for me when I look through my favorite photos and know that’s what caught my eye.  It’s even more gratifying when someone else looks at them and says, “Wow.”

I was raised in Grand Rapids and studied broadcasting at Arizona State University.  After college, I moved to Huntington, West Virginia where I co-hosted the local version of the nationally syndicated TV program, “PM Magazine.”  From there, I moved to Los Angeles and began my long career with Disney.

I absolutely loved my three decades in Southern California and had unbelievable experiences in my career with Disney, but there was much that I missed about West Michigan. As my career wound down, my wife and I decided we would settle down in Grand Haven.  We’re new to town, but we’re loving it and really looking forward to our life together here.  By the way – my wife and I were classmates in high school, then connected after 35 years and were married just over two years ago.
