Hello and welcome! My name is Dave Cyphert and I’m a northwestern Pennsylvania native from the small university town of Clarion, about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh.
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.
In July of 2014, after retiring as a web applications developer & District 1-0 Webmaster for the Pennsylvania Dept. of Transportation I decided to focus solely on high school sports, as well as family, senior portraiture & engagements sessions.
A goal I've had ever since 1996 when I formed ProPoint Media Photography was to make lasting impressions for high school seniors, families, recently engaged couples and over-the-top photos and graphics for sports teams and athletes.
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".
But I'm not without my favorite subjects, such as professional, college, high school & youth league team sports as well as high school seniors, families, kids from 1 to 92 :) and wedding engagements.
If you're interested in setting up a photo session, or just have questions, feel free to send me a message!
