Dave Meinert

Dave tells stories that remind him why he tells stories.
Focusing on simple, human stories, Dave explores the profound in the mundane – the laughter, tears, and awe-inspiring moments that fill our everyday lives.

His work ranges from big budget commercials and interviews with charismatic, inspiring adventurers like Jimmy Chin and Wim Hof, to intimate portraits of child soldiers, shamans and a blind boy regaining his eyesight.

His unique, once-off designed camera rigs and heavily-viral work featuring dogs have featured prominently in Time, Mashable, Fast Company, BestAdsOnTV, Huffington Post and Buzzfeed and earned several Vimeo Staff Picks and awards including a Grand Prix for Integrated at the Loeries.

Dave lives between Cape Town and Los Angeles and also shot extensively in Europe and across Africa.

“It’s not often a man with a great camera eye also has a brain that’s questioning the status quo.”
