David Mandel is a photographer in Charleston, South Carolina. His images have been featured in American Theatre, Charleston Magazine, Mount Pleasant Magazine, Charleston Art Mag, Charleston City Paper, Metronome Charleston, on the covers of Charleston Scene and the Carolinian magazine, and the Post & Courier, among others.

David’s lifelong work as an actor helps him stay in the moment at weddings and events to capture the quirks of personality that define all of the characters in attendance. As a father, David is at ease with kids and adept at capturing genuine smiles out of unscripted spontaneity. Ongoing engagements with graphic design projects, book layout, and website design greatly influence the framing of David’s shots, always with an eye for catching timeless images that are truthful, surprising, and indelible.
