My Bio
Photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember. As early as 4th grade I remember wanting to pose subjects and craft scenes for dramatic effect.

Honestly, I have no desire to snap a pic and convey to you exactly what a scene looked like while I was standing there. Instead, I aim to convey a feeling, thought or emotion. I use post-processing techniques...a lot. So, if my images are not your cup of tea, please do us both a favor and just move on to any of the 47 million other images here on DA which will be more to your liking. Telling me you hate my work or any post-processing is just random spite. If you wouldnt say something to my face, dont let the ever decreasing anonymity of the internet lull you into becoming a jerk.

Please feel free to follow me on my website or Instagram

Update
Hello fellow Deviants. Just a quick update. I've had some of you follow my group on Facebook, so I wanted you to know that I have created a Facebook page solely for my photography and will be shutting down the group page. The new page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/davidhellardphoto Anyone should feel free to stop by and give it a "like" if they are so inclined. Thanks to all the Deviants who have provided such wonderful comments over the years! :dance: :w00t: :dance:

Hey, I read your profile of an angry young man and now I know why so much negative description of your photo. Nobody perfect and I do a lot of post-processing. Never really thought about it, defend it or gave a ....  Like I said, Photographic Art! Smile and walkway. Smile be happy! You are great! Feel it inside! Go back and rewrite your profile with your head high talking about your love and your ambition. Your drive to be your best!  Be a mentor to people like me with ADHD! Explain what you did right! I've been doing this a long time but I still don't the golden triangle right all the time, Av, Tv, ISO it's complicated. Used to be 3 rolls of 36 and if you got one you would fame you had a good day. And that really didn't that often.

Hey, thanks for the comment. I had actually thought I removed that awhile ago. I must not have hit "save" when I edited it. 
The comments that arose from that post were pretty harsh. Although it hasnt happened for awhile, there was a time when I was getting attacked like that on a regular basis and just got fed up with it. I've since learned to not take social media as serious and block and ignore the negativity.
