Who is David Sobik?

Who is David Sobik. I am very keen photographer who started life with a camera about the age of 8 or 9 when his Nanna brought him his first camera. Started wedding photography at 17, shot heaps of motorsport and the like. I got real serious about 15 years ago with weddings and portraits. Weddings are a big part of my photography.

I love getting up North and shooting landscapes and just recently purchased my dream lens, a Nikon 600mm F4 and now I also love getting out finding birds to photograph.

Last year I met the amazing Christian Fletcher and have been to several of his workshops and constantly look towards his work for inspiration.

Recently bought a very nice Adventure motorbike. The BMW R1200GS. If you have seen Long Way Down, well its one of those. I am loving the freedom of the bike and try to head out on it each weekend with my camera. Extended adventure rides are also planned. Karijin coming up in mid 2010. The ride will be awesome as well the photography.

I have some amazing photographers on my blog roll. We all help each other out and I think its the best move I have done in getting this blog set up.

I am loving they way photography is moving at the moment.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi David..I have heard your name but not sure where…I have to thank you so very much for your tribute to Ben. As the mum of Ben to come across such a wonderful photo when I least expected it but my grieving heart so much wanting it, was simply awesome!. It took my breath away and tears to my eyes but happy and oh so proud tears.
    I am wondering if you will attend Ben’s funeral on friday 13th?
    Know that you made a Mumma very happy tonight as any and every image of Ben is precious beyond value to me. I have photos of him but not so much of his paint balling times…is there more?
    thank you for that moment in time that you snapped of my son.
    Bens brother is at the same age you were and has a camera he is loving taking pictures as well. I can only wish that his photos will be as wonderful as yours they are all truly interesting. kind regards Michelle

    • Hello Michelle, yes I will be there. I have quite a few photos of Ben. I will get them together and pop them on a disk for you. Its the least I can do.

      Kind regards


  2. Hi David…I have heard of you through Maxine and Graham…I knew i had heard the name. I would love to have more photos of Ben especially from his paintball world which I didnt see or know much about. I would also welcome some pictures of the funeral if you felt comfortable taking them just quietly in the background. It will be wonderful to look back on the day through many a tear. I dont know what the norm is here but Im floundering anyway with what I should do or not do as Ive never had to experience this moment ever in my life and never want to again I can tell you. kind regards Michelle…ps Im also know by a few as Sue but prefer Michelle
