About David J. Cerven Athlete Photography, St. Louis photographer specializing in athlete portraits and senior portraits.

David J. Cerven
 I never meant to be a photographer. I was a college basketball coach, a strength and conditioning trainer, and a classically trained opera singer. I did, however, have an appreciation for evocative images of athletes. I always loved the inspiring images of elite athletes captured in the middle of doing something that most humans cannot do. Along the way, I took a job to run the St. Louis district of a national sports photography company...and that started it all for me. I opened my studio over ten years ago and I have to say that I am lucky enough to now create images that I once dreamed of capturing. Much of my process starts with the question, "What sort of photo or video awesomeness do I wish that I had when I was an athlete?" Then I set out to make that happen with my clients. I love the interaction with athletes in a photoshoot. I constantly look forward to the collaboration process to fully capture someone who can truly do amazing things athletically. Most of all, I appreciate the opportunity to help young people see themselves at a new level and to help them take a step toward their future greatness. In a world where cameraphones give you a near overload of pictures, we will make images that allow you to see yourself in a way you have never seen before. You will receive images that are completely unique works of art. My photoshoots are not for everyone. While each session includes a good amount of time with portraits, a larger amount of time is dedicated to capturing you doing things that few people can do. We will work together to create something that is truly amazing.

Show the world what you can do.
