David Petranker
Sydney, Australia
2 November 1973

I have been taking photos from the age of 16 when I was using a Asahi Pentax ME taking photos for the school paper.

Equipment 1D Mark IV
70 – 200mm
16 – 35mm
100 – 300mm

I work for a major media outlet suppling my images to international magazines and newspapers.

I believe in preparation with my shoots as well, if a shoot in a particular location is going to take longer than 30 minutes then i have not done my job properly, this does depend on whether i am shooting more than one style of shoot at that particular location.

I love catching moments in peoples life, you will never know what that moment was you will only have an insight.

95% of my shots are edited in lightroom 2.4 using contrast and tone techniques basically straight from the camera, the other 5% I use CS3, you will know the shots that I modify.

Favourite camera sayings

- A great photo will speak through silence
- Camera a mirror with memory

Dear whoever, / Rather than having to reply to this bs everytime maybe stick up for us as photographers, I do not understand how a person who is dressed up in a costume is breaching anything. I find it a load of crap, if the company does not want theses costumes photographed then they should not sell them.  If the company has a problem with the sale of the shot then removed it from being sold, I …
