Grupa Portrait Studio
A member of the Professional Photographers of America since 1977, David has been in the industry since 1976. Currently, he and his wife Kirsten own and operate Grupa Portrait Studio in Maplewood, MN where they operate a residential studio specializing in HS Seniors, families, and portrait photography.
While David always had a few school teams on his schedule, in 2013 he began actively marketing to increase the studio’s sports business. Inspiration from successful veterans like Pat Cahill, Jeff Gump and Leigh LaForest gave him the push he needed to take that market segment to the next level. Kirsten and David have been featured in Professional Photographer magazine. They have spoken at Imaging USA along with other state and specialty conferences.
David and wife Kirsten (also a Certified Professional Photographer and Cr. Photog.) have twin 7-year-old daughters, Kathryn and Sylvia, and reside in Maplewood, MN. When he’s not busy in the studio, you’ll find him volunteering for various community and professional groups. In the summer months, Target Field (or other baseball parks) become his hangout.
