David Blattel’s professional photography career began over thirty years ago when he opened his first commercial studio in Hollywood. A compulsive creator, he pursues perfection in any project he undertakes. Blattel had worked for many Fortune 500 companies when, in 1989, he was chosen to create images for Harley-Davidson’s calendar. For five consecutive years, he designed and created big sets and utilized amazing talent to photograph this calendar. In 1994 a new opportunity came along to photograph Harley-Davidson’s “On Location” calendar. Blattel is now going on his seventeenth consecutive year working with Harley-Davidson dealerships and collectors to produce Motorbooks’ officially-licensed calendar. Blattel’s clients include Disney, Warner Bros., Universal, General Motors, Honda Automobiles, Duracell, Epson, Mattel, Pepsi, St. Jude Medical, United Airlines, and Xerox.
