Daven joined Digital Trends in 2016 and is a contributing editor to the photography section. He began writing at a young age for no other reason than to teach himself how to type, later taking up photography to learn how cameras worked. His love for the tech eventually turned into a passion for the crafts facilitated by it, leading him to pursue a degree in film and video production. He now moonlights as a wedding and portrait photographer and has spent the better part of the last decade writing about cameras and photography -- and still yearns to be a better typist.
