About Dave Pidgeon

Creative Sports Photography brings together so many different threads of my life, which makes providing this service to you especially meaningful. I've been a newspaper reporter, a magazine writer, a public relations ninja, a wedding photographer, and a youth sports coach. And with CSP, I can channel that background in storytelling, image making, and youth athletics to provide a premium service to athletes and their families in and around Lancaster, Pa.

Elite portrait photography for local athletes

I've worked in weddings, family, event, high school senior, and sports photography since 2015. My specialty is in using on-location, off-camera lighting that stands out so athletes have a collection of images that are bold, dynamic, and unique. I learned off-camera lighting thanks to mentoring provided through the Mid-Atlantic Regional School of Photography, and my work has been featured in Popular Photography's book How to Photography Everything as well as in several regional magazines.

Cincinnati Born, 
Lancaster Raised

I was born in Cincinnati and grew up in southern Lancaster County. I'm a graduate of Penn Manor High School and Elizabethtown College. Today, my wife, Alison, and I live in East Hempfield Township with our three sons. I'm a cautiously optimistic Reds fan and vinyl record enthusiast who keeps the beach in my mind and mountains in my heart.
