About Dave O'Melia

Diamond Lil a B-24I started doing photography when I was 12 years old. My father was stationed at an air base in England at that time and I loved to take pictures of the jets taking off and landing at the end of the flight line. I developed and printed my black and white photos at the base hobby shop. One day, base security showed up while I was out there and confiscated my film. Of course, a call was made to my father and that was the end of my flight line shooting.

Now, I do commercial, portrait, event and family shooting.  I really enjoy doing portraits. One of my favorite things to shoot is people and their pets. Pets bring people so much happiness and vice-versa. It is a chance to catch them both at their best. I consider it a privilege when I am asked to do a wedding as it is such a special day for the bride, groom and both families. Wedding photography happens to be pretty challenging too and I do enjoy a challenge.

Some years ago, I started pursuing web design as a part of my business. It has become one of the more important aspects of what I do. Web development leads me to commercial photography. This can include many different types of photographic work. Often, images are desired of the owners and or their employees. Landscape images of the exterior and interior shots are also needed. In addition, product photos are needed for e-commerce and related sales efforts. It is great to see what I can come up with that will make my client's marketing and web presence unusual and appealing. Please take a look at the web development area on this web site. There are links there to some of the web sites I have had the privilege to build.

When you contact me to do a shoot and or a web site for you, you can count on great service and on receiving my best efforts. When you contact me, we will assess your needs and come up with the right course of direction for you.
