Dave Lepori

Nominee at the 10th annual LA Music Awards

Over the past 12 years the GROOVE Doctors, a dance party band located in the San Francisco Bay Area, have been fortunate to have worked with Dave Lepori of Lepori Photography on a number of occasions. Dave is an incredibly talented photographer, but on top of that he is one of the nicest, most easy going and pleasant people to work with that I have ever met. Dave being one of the best doesn’t just apply to people I’ve met in the music industry, it also applies to my current day job as a realtor as well as my time in the biotech/biomed industries.
Dave makes you feel so at ease when you visit him in his studio in downtown Los Gatos, CA. He has music playing and he tells jokes that make any worries you have about being photographed go right out the window. When he is actually taking the shots he keeps up a banter to both make you relax, while at the same time motivating you to create some great poses. Dave gets you the proofs within a day of taking the shots and his team can use photo editing software to help “modify” the shots you want to use in promo material.
Here is a gallery of the GROOVE Doctors’ promo shots Dave has taken in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2008 and 2011. The 2011 photos are what you see on all the headers of our web site as well as on our bio pages.
