David Yarrow was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966. He began taking photographs at an early age, and then at 20 years old he got a job working as a photographer for The London Times. His career took off when he found himself on the pitch at the World Cup Final in Mexico City. On that day, Yarrow took the famous picture of Diego Maradona holding the World Cup. As a result, he was then asked to cover the Olympics and several other sporting events. Now known as a fine art photographer, he has spent the last nine years documenting the natural world from new perspectives.
Throughout his career, Yarrow has earned a loyal following amongst art collectors and critics. This is due to his evocative and immersive use of photography to document of life on earth in the most distinctive way. His large monochrome images made in Los Angeles are on display in leading art galleries and museums across the world. He is now recognised as one of the best selling fine art photographers and his limited edition works regularly sell at high prices at Sotheby’s and other auction houses.
As a result of a very successful career, David Yarrow has a wide range of advisory and ambassadorial roles. He is an ambassador for WildArk and The Kevin Richardson Foundation. As the European ambassador for Nikon, he has worked alongside the company in the most anticipated camera release of the last decade. In December 2017 he shot LVMH’s latest “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” campaign with Cara Delevingne, which is in airports around the world. Most recently, he became the golbal ambassador for UBS, and in the spring of 2020, David became a Global Ambassador for one of America’s most established children’s charities.
