Darren Roubinek, Creative Director at Fasone & Partners
"David is painstakingly detailed photographer, in the studio or on location. Great eye. Great patience. Definitely willing to go beyond the scope of the project to get a great shot."

Pat O'Neill, Owner O'Neill Communications
"David does absolutely first-rate work. His photography is inventive, rich in tone and always fits with, and enhances the marketing concept it was commissioned for. We hire him for all of our best projects."

Garth Krizman, Creative Director at Saatchi&SaatchiX
"What can I say? Dave Shaughnessy is a righteous photographer, a good guy and one hell of a Kansas City Royals fan. All important elements in the successful professional photographer equation. He wont even charge you extra for making sure the shots are in focus. Use him, abuse him...he thrives on it."

Teresa Mandala, Creative Director at Bella Designs
"David just makes things look easy. On our last photo shoot, David took the extra time to make this one night shot perfect. Doesn't matter how complicated or difficult the shot is, David can make it look easy. I know he will always provide me the results I want every time."

Kimble Aydelotte, Managing Director, Management Consulting Division at Black & Veatch
"David has done some photography work for us, and has shot several of our top level executives. He always does a professional job and gives good direction."

Kerry Meier, Senior Art Director, Kendal King Group
"I've hired David twice now for two different kind of shoots and he shows great depth in his ability to shoot lifestyle and table top. What makes him perfect for us is his ability to absorb our concepts, most often from more than one of us, and then deliver a beautiful shot that matches our creative goals. He's also very flexible and easy to work with."

Tim Lynch, Executive Art Director at Andrews McMeel Universal
"I have known and worked with Dave for years. He has a great eye for detail and has great ideas to improve any shot. Keeps budgets on line and will do what it takes to get the job done right. A good complement to any AD's concept."
