I write bio's in the third person because it feels more professional.

so here goes...

David Schuurman has been a decision-maker behind the camera since his early teens filming his siblings snowboarding on his moms Hi8 video camera.

blah blah blah, fast forward to present day, he's gained a breadth of experience from shooting live events and documentary, to commercials, music videos, and narrative works.

David has shot music videos for a wide variety of artists such as Scott Helman, The Reklaws, Keys N Krates, Chad Brownlee, and Johnny Reid. And worked with Award winning directors like Ben Knechtel, Emma Higgins, Stephano Barberis, and Nathan Boey among others.

In 2017 he shot his first feature film What Keeps You Alive with Director Colin Minihan, which had it's 2018 world premiere at SXSW film festival to glowing reviews, and has followed that up with numerous other narrative driven works in the comedy and drama genres.

David has (in his own words) an unrivaled work ethic, and a fast paced, hands-on workflow on set. He loves active camera movement, and motivated, natural lighting that inhabits whole spaces.

All in all, he's a pretty great guy, some people like him, others love him, nobody hates his guts.


the end.

Or is it just the beginning?
