Bristol Freelance Photographer
My name is Dave Betts and I am a Bristol based freelance photographer.
With twenty years experience working as an in-house press photographer for the regions largest local newpaper, The Bristol Evening Post, including duties on the Picture Desk. I have the versatility, passion and creativity to deliver outstanding images for a kaleidoscope of briefs, while working to a deadline.
My true inspiration came from my first teacher of photography far back in the 1980's! Since then, I have gone on to obtain a BA Honours degree in Photographic Studies. However, it has been the ruthless nature of the press industry that has provided the intense training ground needed to discipline and hone my photographic skills.
I have had the pleasure of working for various companies with a wide range of assignments, whether that be photographing Michelin star chef Raymond Blanc, popstars such as the late Amy Winehouse, politicians, TV stars and our British Navy in the Gulf.
I have also enjoyed covering the building and opening of Bristol's £500 million shopping complex Cabot Circus, the Bristol Balloon Festival, Harbourside Festival, Bristol Kite Festival, BrisFest, ss Great Britain events, the Red Arrows display team and the Olympic torch relay.
Whether you require coverage of a corporate event, an acting portfolio, your wedding day or simply a portrait of your child indulging in their favourite past time, my professional but personal manner will ensure you get the photographs you desire.
Please feel free to explore my website and the diversity of photographs I can provide and don't hesitate to contact me with any enquiries you may have.
