Meet David Fisher
David Fisher, the Founder of Bigfishstudio – your first-class shooter. I currently live in Ontario and I like to travel and capture every moment through my lens. Since 2011, my passion for photography grew when I had my first son, Josiah. I was very determined to capture every moment of his life. 7 years later, I became a specialist at wedding photography and cinematography. By the grace of God, I decided to follow my passion. I married the love of my life and became the father-of-three beautiful children. Some of the things that I love to do in my spare time include eating food, playing with my children, studying my bible, biology, shopping and playing basketball. My objective as a photographer is to make sure all your special moments are captured.
How long have you been in the business?
I’ve been in business for about 6 years.
How has your work influenced/transformed the African wedding space/around the world?
My energy, my creativity, my consistency. I pay very close attention to colours, details,
and Time. For colours, it helps to bring out the beauty in the images. When it comes to the details. I try my best to recognize every vendor that is involved in preparation for the bride special day and therefore I make sure I capture the smallest detail in the wedding. Time is huge for me because sometimes on the wedding day you don’t have enough time, therefore I try to get the most important picture and leave the creativity for after.
