David Laverty was born and raised in Dalby, Australia but moved to Brisbane to attend boarding school at St Joseph’s Nudgee College in 2002. One year later David joined the Qld Youth Choir, which led him eventually to perform at many national TV shows, such as The ABC spirit of Christmas (2003), Channel 7’s Golden Casket Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carols (2004/05), Channels 7’s Sunrise (2005), European Winter Tour (2006) and Channels 7’s Battle of the Choirs (2008). After leaving High School David joined the Harvest Rain Theatre Company which brought him on stage for life productions. In the following years David starred in acclaimed performances such as High School Musical (2008), Jane Eyre (2008), A Midsummer Nights Dream (2008). 2009 started good for David when he was given the opportunity to work on set for The Awfully big Adventures of Peter Pan and to second to producer/director for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
His many years of TV and theater experience brought him in contact with national and international performers, many of whom he followed a training with. Always looking to grow as a performer and with nothing but high expectations for the future, David Laverty is currently studying a Bachelor of Music majoring in Musical Theatre at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. Yes, David is one of those rare talents that seem to have a knack of many forms of performing arts. And now he has also added modeling to that.
There are many opinions on what perfection and beauty should be, but there is more than one answer. We can all agree on one thing though. Beauty is unique. David Laverty has burn scars and might not answer to what most consider the physical perfection. But that same imperfection is also what makes David’s physical appearance unique. Australian photographer Ali Choudhry worked with David and experienced first hand what a special person David Laverty is: “David is a musician who aims to delve into modeling, compared to most of my 'models' who may not have any modeling interests or are first time models. Because of his modeling aspirations, I tried to make this series as 'editorial' as possible. The irony being that there are hardly any clothes in the images, and as perfect as models are 'supposed' to be, they are human and thus, like everyone else imperfectly perfect.” –BM-
