David Rowland

From the moment he picked up his mother’s Instamatic he was drawn to photography. Initially, he liked the spontaneity and directness, over time he came to perfect his craft in the studio – sculpting objects and people with light to make photographs. 

Throughout his career, he's been fortunate to work with some of the world’s best-known brands and agencies, but he still draws great pleasure from more experimental personal work; it influences his commissioned work and vice-versa.

Creative lighting and composition are at the heart of what he does. He relishes the challenge of enhancing a client’s concept or narrative and problem solving to make them a reality, often building the sets or sourcing props himself.
