Davis Acuff, from Kansas City, Mo. has dabbled as a photographer over the years taking special interest in subjects like low lighting, candids, tasteful nudes, erotica, and live music. Although an amateur Davis's body of work is now becoming well known and he frequently receives freelance commissions, is the chief marketing manager and photographer for StarzMedia, has been published and received his first magazine cover this year.
I've never much cared for convention and I loathe politics or anything that attempts to mold me into a preformed design. I am a father, grandfather, uncle, son, partner, cousin and friend to many. I am an ENTJ, Taurus, a Musician, PhotoArtist, a Business Owner, a Hustler, and a Scoundrel.
Living now in conservative Kansas City, Mo. formerly of St. Louis, Portland Oregon, and Houston Texas. I have been to 3 continents, 5 countries, and 42 States. And, I've worked in an equally diverse array of jobs from touring musician, to product manager, sales director, worship director, to sales pro and business owner.
I've always cherished photography and can get lost in a series of pictures just as a reader gets lost in the story of a cherished book. I began taking photography more seriously in my 50s.. Never attempting to create competitive works, I just took pictures I liked, many of which were outstanding. Feeling overwhelmed but energized by the early recognition, I immersed myself into digital art and has since become an expert with the software tools I could buy.
Just like August Rush, I feel like we miss so much art because we don't slow down long enough to see it or hear it. I wish I could help more people understand, by the time you reach your 50's or 60's you will realize how little conventional assumptions made in your life. Experience it all! Taste life! Go and don't regret anything.
