David Mariuz Photo
For 30 years David has specialised in editorial, commercial and portrait photography for use in annual reports, brochures, marketing collateral, and corporate events. The range of his work is extensive, including work in media, public relations and advertising industries, as well as landscape and event photography, and more recently high definition video and time lapse work.
Born and raised in Melbourne, as a young child David was given a Kodak Instamatic camera as a gift, which led to a life time passion for photography. This fascination followed to candid and street photography which led to assignments for various companies and media organisations in Melbourne and later Sydney. David further honed his photographic skills as an assistant in a large commercial advertising agency and studio. Now based in Adelaide, where he has lived for the past fifteen years, David’s extensive range of work includes work in media and the arts, corporate, public relations and advertising photography. His clients include law firms, design studios and Fairfax Media titles such as The Financial Review, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. David has covered assignments on location around Adelaide, South Australia and Australia for the past twenty years and his work has been published in the UK, Ireland and the USA in various media outlets from books to magazines and newspapers. With vast editorial, commercial and advertising experience, David’s versatility sees him sought after by a diverse range of clients for a diverse range of photographic needs.
David understands the pressures of deadlines and his clients’ valuable time frames. “In corporate and editorial assignments the pressure is on because the clients are extremely busy, so I try and make the session as smooth and personable as possible”.
At the end of the day photography is about people, and how we interact. David’s job is to exceed client’s expectations. David brings to his photography an instinct for capturing people and images at the moment where they reveal something greater about themselves and their situation. “It’s like a little story for me, framing a moment in an image,” he says.
David was named the AIPP SA Editorial Photographer of the Year in 2005 and 2006.
