“David has photographed the Endeavor Foundation for the Art’s annual Spring Gala's award ceremony the last two years.
His photographs have captured the essence of the evening, one of love and celebration for the recipients. During the events he consistently checked in with the board of directors to inquire about the photos they wanted taken and to suggest possible photo opportunities as well.
David is an easy person to work with and we, The Endeavor Foundation for the Arts, looks forward to continue to work with him during other events throughout the year.”

“David Sweet has managed to infiltrate in the Gay community of San Francisco, providing via photographs an insightful, endearing and documentary view of the current and historic events of the every day life of the LGBT community.
Also, by being a tennis lover has been able to cover tennis events and portray players and tennis stars in very candid moments not very often seeing by others.
There is more in store for David, but so far this is a great start!”
