DW Burnett is an automotive photographer from Brooklyn, New York who loves cars. But he doesn’t love writing about himself in the third person.
Hi! There, that’s better. Most people call me Dave, but some people call me PUPPYKNUCKLES, thanks to the blog I started a few years ago. Music was my first love; I first came to New York City to pursue a degree in music performance at The New School. But then I was bitten by a particularly venomous photography bug and everything changed. I continue to play drums regularly (for money, even!), but ever since I started combining my passion for cars with the art of making pictures of them and what they do, there’s been no looking back. I’m now fortunate enough to get to work with top automakers and am a regular contributor to some of my favorite magazines.
Audi, Ferrari, McLaren, Chevrolet, Ford, Jaguar/Land Rover, Lamborghini, Rolex, Hyundai, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Genesis, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, Road & Track, Top Gear UK, Hagerty, Car & Driver, Vanity Fair, Gear Patrol, The Drive, Complex, Time Inc., Yahoo! Motors, Michelin, DuJour Media, American Endurance Racing, American Muscle, Enzo Magazine
So, Dave, why DW Burnett? Well, it turns out there is already a photographer named Dave Burnett, he’s quite famous, and was winning awards before I was old enough to tie my shoes, so… DW Burnett. Just to avoid any confusion.
Can I call you PUPPYKNUCKLES? Sure, call me whatever you want. Just call. Contact info is below.
