Hello and welcome! My name is Dave Cyphert and I’m a northwestern Pennsylvania native from the small university town of Clarion, situated about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh and and south of Erie.
In July of 2014, I retired from the Information Technology field as a web applications developer & District 1-0 Webmaster for the Pennsylvania Dept. of Transportation.
In the early 80s I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, honorably serving on a Spruance Class Destroyer based in Norfolk, VA. While onboard, photography began to peak my interests while being afforded the opportunity to capture many different landscapes and maritime themed images relating to my work as an Electronic Warfare Technician.
Since 1996, when I formed ProPoint Media Photography, I've focused my business model solely on high school and organized sports imaging, bringing over-the-top designs to area athletes and schools. I've also photographed several wedding ceremonies over the years as well as portrait sessions for families, high school seniors and engagements.
By far, two of the most common questions I'm asked are:
1.) What kind of photographer are you? and 2.) What do you photograph? and my answers are usually something like..."Well, I mainly shoot people (umm)...people playing sports that is, well...not in the literal sense, but you get the picture. But really, I shoot and design a little of everything that catches the eye".
If you're interested in setting up a photo session, or just have questions about an upcoming event, feel free to send me a message!
