Clients & Kudos


“Its just wonderful to work with a great musician who is also a great a photo- and videographer. David moves the camera just perfectly with the music, he knows and feels where the music aims to and consequently he is always with a great angle at the exact spot where the music happens.”
Oli Bott –

“A friend recenlty invited me to a photo shoot with David Beecroft. The outdoor images he captured are simply amazing! As a guest in some of the shots, David suprisingly bought out an unexpected essence of who I “really” am. So, when it came time for some new images for my projects in 2018, David gladly “shot me” in his studio. He truly knows how to bring out the best of who (or what) is in front of his camera lens. The pictures he took are just fabulously creative! It is one of the most comfortably authentic and honest experiences in my life. Thank you so much, David!”

Lieber David,
ich möchte dir sagen, daß ich beeindruckt bin von deinen fotos! Von der fülle der motive, dem detaillierten blick, der von sachlich abstrakt bis poetisch – anrührend reicht und nicht kitschig wird, und wenn, dann hat das witz! vielen dank,
Günther Lindner (Theater o.N. Berlin)

Dear David,
Thank you very much for such an enjoyable and productive photo shoot. I would never have expected to walk out of there with 15 gorgeous photos. Anne-Katrin and l were so inspired by the quality of those portraits that we were immediately motivated to build a website and create a Facebook page – and now we’re in business ! One day when we’re rich and famous, we’ll be sure to remember that you were the catalyst and that professional photo session was the spark we needed.

Dear David,
What I love most about your photo skills is that you have such a great ability to give a sense of breath and bigness to the spaces.
Donna Brown – Director, Golden Gospel Pearls

“I hear music when I gaze into the captured beauty of David’s photos.  Satisfaction is inevitable every time I work with him.  David Beecroft Photography is one of the BEST!  His photos are more than mere visuals but an EXPERIENCE that moves you.”

“I hired David to shoot profile images of and for me in Aug 2014 in Berlin.
As a Professional photographer myself, and albeit challenging, I left all creative direction and management to him. David was engaging, encouraging and entertaining! His results and finished work are impressive! Using minimal equipment and a creative use of present ambient light – he produced strikingly creative and innovative images that I will be using for some time!”

“I hired David to shoot profile images of and for me in February 2017 in Berlin. As I know nothing about jazz, I cannot judge his musical abilities – but as a commercial photographer I can his photo work! David’s calm but focussed ability to capture the essence of a person at work is a marvel and a pleasure to be part of. His chasing and use of natural light in any situation is commendable – a true artist! Thanks for the shoot David – I’ll be using those images for a long time….”
David Nassim

“David Beecroft is a gift for musicians and non musicians who need expert but warm and harmonious photos. I’ve worked exclusively with him for years and he has Always exceeded my expectations by presenting a vision that I could not imagine beforehand. Do yourself a favour and step up to a brilliant photographer!”

“What I find truly amazing about David Beecroft and his work is his musician soul within the photograpy. He is a great tenor sax player (!) and that same approach to finding the truth in the sound translates into finding the truth in the image. He captures a quality beneath the surface of the subject that is essential, a core of sensitivity and ego that he reveals. Like a master creating figures in stone, Beecroft pulls the spirit out of light, camera and action. It’s not too much to say that Beecroft’s camera is his horn too, and he can listen and perform with the best of them. Thanks for capturing parts of me that I didn’t know or see David. You are a master!”

Du hast die Stimmung auf deine Weise eingefangen, fürsorglich den Tanz beaobachtet und eine neue Kunst daraus gemacht, deine Art zu fotografieren, es ist zauberhaft…. best regards
Hanne Franziska Bender 

Thank you so much. Pictures are again wonderful. And they are so many!!
It’ll take a while to make a sensible selection, hard to decide. I will first choose about 15 for more immediate press and later more for our documentation if that is okay for you.
Thanks again for being part of Fratz, for your stamina especially on that veeeeery long Monday. It is great to have things documented so well, since it is the only thing that remains from the atmosphere of an event like this. So we were lucky to have you there…

Hi David,
In the name of the Almighty Korkus and on behalf of all inhabitants from Bayou 7, we thank you from the bottom of our boots for the fantastic photo shots.
Really.  You have great ideas, eyes, and some serious fingertip muscles and agility to take great photos. We’re baffled by the photos, for they are truly works of art on their own. They are so great that we’re having difficult times selecting photos, but we will make selection very soon so, you could take off the watermark and we’ll put it up on the website once the new layout is finished, with big exclusive credit/link to you.
We look very forward to continue working together, for you’re now the official VIP Ground Crew Of The Year.
In the mean time, for future concerts in my other projects, I would love to hire you and will advertise your talents to others.
Great work! and thank you so much!
