David Sparks Commercial Photography - Interiors and Architectural Photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan David Sparks Commercial Photography - Interiors and Architectural Photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan

About David

David Sparks is a Grand Rapids-based commercial photographer specializing in architectural and interiors photography since 2013.

David grew up in southwest Michigan on a crop and livestock farm that has been in the family since before Michigan's statehood. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2011 with a film studies degree, David found work in Grand Rapids, Michigan, typing closed captions for TV programs. It was during one of these monotonous days of typing in his windowless office that David found himself searching for more fulfilling work and spotted an opportunity to capture 360-degree imagery for Google's newly-launched Business View program. Through this experience, David gradually discovered and developed his skills in commercial photography and has been attracting a wide range of clients ever since through his authentic and focused approach to creating a classic photograph.

Outside of photography, David has a penchant for music and played drums in a couple alternative rock bands for several years. Writing, recording, practicing, and touring across the country with likeminded friends is an experience he will always remember with fondness.
