David is an internationally renowned photographer who has shot some of the world's most famous faces and worked with some of the world's most famous brands — Renault, IKEA, Electrolux, Sony Ericsson, Mastercard, McDonald's, SAS and TV4 — to name but a few.

Ultimately, however, David is a teacher and an evangelist. He's passionate about spreading the good word, and the good word is "light."

It all started when David was 5 or 6 years old. He became fascinated with the romantic pocketbook covers he would see when visiting a local bookstand with his mom. The images that caught his eye were super-realistic illustrations. David would attempt to recreate them with pencils and paints, trying to make them look as close to a photograph as possible. It was only years later he realized it was the way the artist used light and shadow that made those illustrations feel as real as they did, and a lifelong obsession began.

"I became fascinated about what you could do with a camera, so I set out to take everything I had learned about lighting for film, and I applied it to stills."

David has partnered with Profoto to create a series of courses for Profoto Academy.
