As an IT professional for the past 18 years, I needed a non-binary outlet to unwind with during my downtime. I am a self-taught photographer, with a passion to create art. I have been capturing images for over 20 years. Although I specialize in boudoir, artistic nude and fetish photography – I also enjoy shooting landscapes, events, products and even corporate headshots.

My professional career started out in Halifax, where I opened my first studio – Dave Auton Photographic Studios. During my time in Halifax, I had an opportunity to work with models and clients, from across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and to collaborate with local photographers on various projects.

Always looking for new opportunities to learn and develop, I have participated in various workshops to improve my knowledge and fine tune my skill set to best serve my clients. My portfolio of work spans multiple disciplines from commercial billboards to multiple magazine publications including Missy Ink, Sugarheart and Classy Keen.

A recent move to the West coast, meant a new adventure, a new studio and a new group of clients to photograph. Intimate Portraits is the next chapter in my photographic journey. With a continued focus on boudoir, I will continue to seek out new clients to pair with my creative visions.

I look forward to SHOOTING you soon!



What a great time!  Super professional and intelligent.  I have worked modelling since 2009 and got fresh, unique images that really pushed my skills and showed me so much more!  Get yourselves down and shoot with this brilliant photographer!


Dave was fantastic!  Professional and made us all feel great!  Had the pleasure of having pictures taken as part of a stagette party!  Everyone had so much fun!


It wasn’t a good shoot unless you go home sore.  And I’m sore.  Thanks Dave Auton for a great shoot.  Everyone needs to check him out!


So easy to work with, and the results speak for themselves.  Amazing photographer, was a pleasure to work with him.  Can’t wait to do it again.


The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description
