You'll find him at deviantART. Check also this article and this one.
David Kirk, how did your passion begin ?
Probably around 1989.
How long could you be far from your camera ?
I try to keep a camera with me at most times, even if it is the one on my phone - particularly useful when you are out and about and see something that even just gives a basis for an idea.

What inspire you ?
Music, films, the way the light is shining. Sometimes other photos will give me an idea.
Do you feel particularly inspired by a type of location ?
Sometimes. Really want to travel that bit more. Though really love the East Neuk of Fife (St Monans (or Monance) Pitenweem, Anstruther etc).
Who are your great guys in the job ?
John McMurtrie - pretty sure I met him when I was working backstage at a Sum-41 concert in the Barras years ago. Ross Halfin, the late great Bob Carlos Clarke, Andreas Bitesnich, Helmut Newton - he has some fantastic shots. Bill Brandt - fuckin' love his nudes shot with the old wide angle (I think it was an ex-police model for crime scenes). There are so many more - I really love McInnes, Davemc and Sera.
What is your process of artistic creation ?
Umm, organised Chaos...
Your preferences, indoor, outdoor, natural lights, color ?Usually indoor - I prefer natural light, but usually I have to resort to flash due to the weather being a bugger. When I use digital I shoot colour but usually use the plugins in Bibble to go B+W.
How do you find your beautiful models ?
Usually through Mcinnes's site, sometimes Purestorm and occasionally Net-Model.

What kind of ambiance do you install to warm the often shy atmospher of the beginnings ?
Bang the heating on full whack. Natural charm, umm a wee chat see what we both want out of the shoot.
Do you make many corrections after a shoot ?
Generally I can whack out a decent set after the shoot, though when I look back some time later I see a few more that I like or don't like and make a later edit.
What is your artistic dream ?
Keep changing, fleeting images, suppose it depends on my mood.
Have you scheduled your next exhibition ?
A book to come ?
Would like that, though still need more images.
What's for your next future ?
Umm well the most immediate is sitting, and passing my SIA Door Supervisor course for the day-job.
Thanks Dave ! See you soon...
