About Dave Pidgeon
It all began with T-ball.
I love T-ball. I really do. If you have a sense of humor, T-ball can be enormously entertaining as a parent and coach.
But it was during a miserable team picture day when I realized someone needed to change how youth athlete portraits were done. They no longer served the kids, the team, or the parents.
It was time for athlete portraits that truly mattered to the player and parents. And the person who could change it, I decided right then, would be me.
CSP's Owner & Chief Image Maker
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. Thanks to B&H Photo and Sandra Coan Education, I've taught other photographers from across the country my portrait lighting method. My work has been featured in Popular Photography's book How to Photography Everything as well as in several regional magazines.
Player, Coach, Parent
What I love about bringing creative, artistic portraiture to youth athletes in Lancaster and beyond is how it ties back to so much. I played soccer for Penn Manor High School, I've coached for youth sports, and I'm Dad to three young boys.
Those roles help me relate and connect with everyone involved in amazing athlete portraits. And that means spectacular results for clients.
