As an IT professional for the past 15 years, I needed a non-binary outlet to unwind with during my downtime. I am a self-taught photographer, with a passion to create art. I have been capturing images for over 20 years. Although I specialize in vintage Pin Up, boudoir and fine art nude photography – I also enjoy shooting landscapes, events, products and even corporate headshots.

My professional career started out in Halifax, where I opened my first studio – Dave Auton Photographic Studios. During my time in Halifax, I had an opportunity to work with models and clients, from across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and to collaborate with local photographers on various projects.

Always looking for new opportunities to learn and develop, I have participated in various workshops to improve my knowledge and fine tune my skill set to best serve my clients. My portfolio of work spans multiple disciplines from commercial billboards to multiple magazine publications including Missy Ink, Sugarheart and Classy Keen.

A recent move to the West coast, meant a new adventure, a new studio and a new group of clients to photograph. Black Box Studios is the next chapter is my photographic journey. With a continued focus on pin up and boudoir, I will continue to seek out new clients to pair with my creative visions.

I look forward to SHOOTING you soon!
