Photographer David Drake has a style to his portraiture. A Je ne sais quoi.
Photographer David Drake is not only the man behind the vycra presets for Lightroom, but he’s also a fantastic film photographer. “My step-father was at ground zero in NYC on September 11th 2001, and was photographed by the Magnum photographer Larry Towell,” he tells us. “It was published in the Magnum September 11th book. I was 15 years old at the time, and the fact the a photo of one of my parents was being exhibited and published really interested me.” After getting a copy of the book and a Minolta XG7 from his step-father, he started shooting in black and white film. And according to him, it was probably because of that photograph.
