Bob Davis is a professional photographer with more than 25 years of experience. From an early age, Bob knew that he wanted to be a photographer. Bob’s passion for photography began back in his high school days when he served as editor of the school’s newspaper. He went on to Columbia College and was named “College Photographer of the Year.” With this came a full-time job at the Daily Southtown newspaper in Chicago and then on to the Chicago Sun-Times for 14 years. Bob’s cameras have always served as a passport, allowing him a front seat to history. He remains honored when doors open and people invite him in to document their lives. While at the paper, he covered countless amazing events; presidential elections, Michael Jordan's entire career with the Chicago Bulls, many faith celebrations and rituals. He has traveled around the world to places such as El Salvador, Taiwan, Lithuania, Romania, Moldova, Kenya, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Tanzania for weddings and provided a visual and voice to human interest stories for nonprofit organizations. Today, Bob feels privilege in photographing the most important events in for clients. He’s still having a blast traveling the world to photograph weddings, including famous unions such as Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds, Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault, LaLa Vasquez and Carmelo Anthony, Ashley Herbert (from ABC’s “The Bachelorette”) and J.P. Rosenbaum. He also serves as photographer for many of Oprah Winfrey’s events. He is honored to be a member Canons Explorers of Light, a Westcott Top Pro Elite Photographer, and a member of SanDisk Extreme Team. Bob is also the author of Lights, Camera, Capture: Creative Lighting Techniques for Digital Photographers and We’re Engaged! Photographing Vibrant and Joyful Portraits of the Happy Couple.
