David Yarrow was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966. He took up photography at an early age and as a 20-year-old found himself working as a photographer for The London Times on the pitch at the World Cup Final in Mexico City. On that day, David took the famous picture of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup and, as a result, was subsequently asked to cover the Olympics and numerous other sporting events. Many years later David established himself as a photographer by documenting the natural world from new perspectives.
David’s evocative and immersive photography is distinctive and has earned him an ever-growing following amongst art collectors. His large monochrome images made in Los Angeles are on display in leading galleries and museums across Europe and North America. He is now recognized as one of the best-selling photographers in the world.
Since 2019, David’s work has raised over $10m for philanthropic and conservation organizations. In 2020, David became an ambassador for the African Community and Conservation Foundation and presented his work at the Endangered Rangers virtual fundraiser. In the spring of 2020, David was appointed a Global Ambassador for Best Buddies – one of America’s most established children’s charities.
