David Mecey spent 24 years at PLAYBOY as a Staff Photographer. However, David was unique in the manner that not only did he shoot Centerfolds in the Chicago office - but also photographed a ton of Playboy Newsstand Specials, Celebrity features and more.
David Mecey is an incredibly talented photographer. Many of Echo's favorite images from Playboy were taken by David.
When we asked David about his experience at Playboy, he had the following to say:
"Playboy was in no uncertain terms my University of Life for a young, naïve southern boy from East Texas. No other way to put it. It would be there I would literally grow up, both as a photographer and as a man. By that, I would learn to be more sophisticated and charming in order to meet the demands of the magazine’s PR requirements dealing with interviews representing both the magazine and myself. Then being flown everywhere, working with so many people, especially the women, well, it just taught me what it takes to be a consummate professional and to be able to handle pressure due to the high standards the magazine required from its shooters."
I cannot say enough how much it impacted me both professionally and privately. It was literally my life for some 24 years and that was all. I lived, dreamed and worked for the Bunny."
David continues to work in the field of photography as well as offering workshops that pertain specifically to the "Playboy Lighting Effect."
