Since turning his lens on the natural world, David has built an unrivalled reputation for capturing the beauty of the planet's remote landscapes and endangered animals. His Encounter Collection was exhibited in November 2013 in Hong Kong, New York and London's Saatchi Gallery. In November 2015, David is exhibiting in two single-man shows at Kunsthuizen Gallery in Amsterdam and a one-time-only exhibition at the world-famous Bührle Museum in Zurich.
David puts his understanding of key environmental and geopolitical issues to practical use in his long-term commitment to Tusk as their affiliated photographer. Tusk, whose Royal Patron is HRH the Duke of Cambridge, recently marked its 25th anniversary with a gala dinner in New York, where David's work raised $80,000. The value of his work has continued to rise and the image Mankind II from his South Sudan series sold at an auction at Sotheby's New York for $45,000 in October this year.
David is the author of two highly successful fine-art photography books, Nowhere (2007) and Encounter (2013) – the latter winning him the coveted Spear's Book Award 2014 for Outstandingly Produced Book. He is also due to release a new book in 2016, which will include a wide selection of his most iconic work to date.
As a lifelong user of Nikon equipment, David has put his kit through unimaginably gruelling conditions in search of the most transcendent wildlife images.
