About Me


My name is Dave Waddell and I'm an editorial and commercial photographer who has recently relocated from Philadelphia to Rockland Maine.  

When I'm not taking photos, you'll find me spending time outdoors hiking, biking or snowboarding. Or on lazier days, I'll be lounging at home with my wife and three year old son, writing, walking the dog and occupying myself with a somewhat eclectic mix of other hobbies and interests.


I quit my job in the IT banking industry back in 2012 and have been working as a full time photographer in and around Philly ever since. My love and appreciation of photography however, dates back to high school in the late 1990s when I first set foot in a darkroom and fell instantly in love with the magic of this medium.   

I've worked with countless brands, agencies, publications and businesses in the Philadelphia area and am happy to provide references if needed. 

Work with Me

After spending the first 32 years of my life living in the same 40 square miles in Pennsylvania, this move to Maine has been incredibly refreshing, rejuvenating and has been long overdue for both my wife and I.  I'm beyond excited and inspired by our new surroundings and am bursting with creative energy that I can't wait to put to use.
