About AC Photo
A snapshot of AC Photo's founder, David Webber
Hi, I'm David, founder of AC Photo.
I'm a professional headshot, portrait and family lifestyle photographer based in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
I've been tinkering with cameras since 1994, when I picked up an old Pentax SLR for a couple of quid in a charity shop. There was a darkroom at college (the old Thomas Danby near Sheepscar in Leeds) and I was about the only person interested in using it.
I loved whiling away the hours developing my own black and white images while listening to music.
I spent the next 20 years swearing that I would never become a professional photographer. I loved photography too much for it to become 'work'.
After 10 years working my way around the world in the casino industry, followed by another 10 of corporate conformity, the lure of working for myself became too great, and AC Photo was born.
The ethos behind AC Photo is simple - its people. When I set off to travel the world I was excited to see great places. What I came home with was memories of great people.
And just as every place has its own beauty, so does every person. Every face, every pose, every human interaction caught by the shutter is a unique and beautiful moment.
If 2020 taught us anything, it's that the moments that make memories can't be taken for granted. The people in our lives are precious; the memories we make of them should be just as precious.
So that's me. That's AC Photo. It's about people. Being together. Enjoying togetherness. And most of all, creating wonderful memories.
I'd love to work with you. Get in touch, let's make some memories.
