Please follow the links above to view a sample of David's work.
David has been a photographer since 1977, when he left school to join the Fleet Street picture agency Fox Photos. In 1980 he moved to the Keystone Press agency, covering news stories around London. Major stories he covered included the Iranian Embassy siege, the Brixton riots and the early days of Lady Diana. Throughout the 1980s heI specialized in photographing Princess Diana and the Royal Family. This included photographing Charles and Diana on Royal Tours around the world, visiting over fifty countries and producing sixteen illustrated books on their travels, two of which (Charles and Diana's First Royal Tour and Charles and Diana in Canada) made the Sunday Times Best Seller list.
David's work is published regularly by leading magazines and newspapers around the world including Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Paris Match, Businessweek, The Guardian, The Times and The Observer.
His photographs of the English Social Season were published as a special supplement by Tatler in 1993.
In 1994 he became the first and only photographer ever granted full behind the scenes access into the Bank of England, for a story that ran in the Daily Telegraph magazine.
A project on quirky Annual British Rituals, shot over two years, ran as a ten page feature in the Sunday Times Magazine.
David's work has been exhibited at the Leica Gallery in Germany, by the World Press Photo contest, the Press Photographers Association, and the Association of Photographers. He has won awards in the Association of Photographers Awards and the Texaco Industrial Photographer of the Year contest.
Based in Berkhamsted England, he now works mainly for editorial and corporate clients such as the National Trust, shooting documentary style reportage, and also produces work for school prospectuses. He is the UK contributor for Canvas, an Art magazine, based in Dubai.
He also has a large archive of portraits of leading authors and writers, which I update throughout the year.
