    Whats goin' on guys!

    My names David and I am a photographer and a cinematographer. In 2018, I'm hoping to crush the YouTube and Instagram game, and I can't do that without the help of everyone else. My fanbase is whats most important to me, your viewership, attention and making sure that you and I BOTH succeed and grow together. That's what my YouTube channel is all about, helping you guys grow and improve your work, as well as succeed in what you want to do. It's mainly focused on the photo and video people, but this includes vloggers, anyone trying to get started with YouTube and anyone trying to jump into the photography and film game.

    A bit more about my background, I represent the asian community and as some may know, even after all these years, we still don't hold that big of an impact on YouTube even with huge channels like NigaHiga, WongFu Productions, JustKiddingFilms, FungBros etc. They are all centrally focused on executing, but I don't see many focused on teaching and helping the viewers. We hold a strong point in Entertainment, but we don't hold such a big perspective in Education. On that spectrum we have Peter McKinnon, Chris Hau, Sawyer Hartman, FroKnowsFoto etc. They all hold a certain demographic. So I want to be one of the few asian americans to make it further in the educational YouTube game, as well as create my own content.

    I have been doing photography for almost 7 years, and video for almost 6. I also have the background of about 5 years in animation with sprites, but that was a whole different era. Animation here has substantially increased in potential and the basic starting point compared from then to know has COMPLETELY CHANGED, from 24FPS to 30 to 60 to people even animating with 120! After Effects here is now nearly standard and the flow of animation is completely different. What was considered professional back then is so different now. ANYWAYS.

    I've worked for a lot of companies and been sponsored and partnered with a lot of people, even Duck Donuts and a few clothing lines like Gunplay Clothing Co. Envision Clothing Co. Doughnutshop Collective, Royalty Clothing Co. and Simple to Society. I do all kinds of video work from Music videos to advertisements, today I'm having dinner with the owner of BeScene hair salon to discuss some video work! So my career is really going up, but I also want to continue with uploading to YouTube and Instagram because it really helps at a block, a wall. YouTube and Instagram help me continue to create content, especially when I set a strict schedule for myself.

    At this point I'm rambling haha.

    But this was my introduction, now you know a little more about me, my aspirations, my background and where I plan to be and what I already do. Thanks for reading if you decided to read it all! Hope to make some new friends, new fans and great relationships here. Your attention, viewership and support is what I want here! So lets grow AND succeed together no matter what it may be!

    Ohh Welcome Back! I actually recall skimming through your old work. Having a goal to help improve everyone else with their current animation career of sorts is just the kind of inspiration we need. I hope to see you around. c:
