I first picked up a camera 43 years ago. It was a gift from my father and it sparked a life long passion that, while it’s intensity has gone through cycles, has never died. It is the creative outlet that lets me reflect on the world and share my vision of it. 

I shoot the world as I see it. And if I don’t see it the way I want it to be, sometimes I create my own worlds. (Look at the Fantasy Worlds Gallery). I shoot traditional portrait, pin-up, boudoir, portfolio and fantasy images. I provide commercial, advertising and product photography services. And my images are available as fine art prints in a variety of sizes and media as well as for licensed use.

Based in Palm Beach County, Florida, we can take advantage of year round mild weather to shoot on location or move inside to the studio.  Email or call me to discuss your project.

While the Africa blog is no longer active, I have left them up. A lot of the photos are not in the galleries so this is the only place to see them. Visit them at www.davebardt.com/Africa
