David Mecey’s formative years were all about art and music; his love for photography blossomed after college and quite literally by accident. After a near tragic motorcycle accident had him convalescing for nearly a year, his doctor suggested photography after admiring David’s artwork.
Photography became a career choice from the beginning with what many would consider a dream job. David began his work for Playboy magazine in the fall of 1979, soon afterwards he moved to Chicago and became staff photographer. In the late ‘80s he would take a title change to Contributing Photographer and he would continue with Playboy until 2002. It was after that time he began to expand on his photographic style to include fashion, beauty and celebrity work for various editorial and advertising clients worldwide.
He was called upon to shoot Petersen Publishing’s SPORT magazine swimsuit issue four successive years, the final year culminated with it being broadcast on ESPN, ESPN 2 and Prime Ticket, David serving as both narrator and host. In addition, he would be thrown into an acting stint in a made-for-TV movie starring Linda Carter airing on CBS, called Posing. The director tapped David to play a fictional Playboy photographer. In 2001 David would become co-host and feature photographer for Playboy TV’s, Sexy Girls Next Door.
In 2008 and 2010, David was a featured speaker and presenter at the international photography trade show, Photokina held in Cologne, Germany. In 2013 David was invited to speak at the Theater and Film Dept of UCLA on the merits of working with great photography. His teaching continued by creating David Mecey's Ultimate Photo WorkshopTM, an updated version of his FotoFantasyCamp workshops founded in 1995. David went on tour partnering with German photographer, Guido Karp, to produce workshops throughout Germany, Switzerland and Austria beginning in 2015. He returned in June 2016 to do a week long Ultimate Photo Workshop in and around Koblenz, Germany.
Along with his continuing catalog and beauty photography, David has self-published a number of books. His books can be found in the bookstore at blurb.com. You may also find galleries of David’s work at both German and French GQ magazine websites.
