About Lightroom Zen


My name is David Childers, and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer in Orlando, FL. I live here with my wonderful wife Evan and our two spoiled rotten dogs. 

My Story

I studied journalism at USC and worked for a regional newspaper as a reporter and photojournalist before leaving the industry to start my own photography business. 8 years later, I'm in love with photography more now than ever before. I've photographed hundreds of weddings and portrait sessions, created three award winning fine art series, and done commercial photography for Fortune 500 companies. 


Lightroom Zen Starts

Three years ago, I launched a Youtube channel to teach Lightroom editing and share my passion for creating something special from every photo. It quickly took off, gaining almost 20,000 subscribers in no time, which blew my mind. But I didn't have the time to dedicate myself to it full time, so I had to take a break. I started working on a plan to launch a blog, editing system, and relaunch the channel. I took my time to do things the best possible way while continuing to be a full time photographer, and now I'm relaunching and I couldn't be more excited.  I've used all of this experience and knowledge to create what I believe are the absolute best Lightroom Presets for all styles and all lighting conditions. I have a ton of great content planned for you, from interviews with some of the best photographers in the industry, tutorials, before and after edits, and more. Subscribe below and follow along on the various social media networks. Thanks for joining me here at Lightroom Zen, let's go create some great art.
