David A. Land is a New York-based photographer. A balanced Libra (with the very same birthday as my amazing mom) and a native of California, he studied at the Art Center College of Design, earning a degree in photography in 1996. An early assignment—documenting the family trip to Disney Land when he was 8—led to a lifelong interest in travel photography. David’s travel work has appeared in Conde Nast Traveler, Departures, Endless Vacation and Afar magazines. David’s portraiture reflects his natural interest in his subjects – whether they’re real people or models – and their environments. His personal passion for design and architecture inform his careful compositions and unique ability to capture a strong sense of place. Other editorial clients include Country Living, Architectural Digest, Redbook, The Nest, Gotham, Food Network Magazine, HGTV Magazine and O, the Oprah Magazine.
Recently, David has taken his interest in visual storytelling and expanded into video; his video clients include West Elm, Carol’s Daughter, and Donghia, as well as Lonny, TradHome, and Better Homes & Gardens magazines. David lives in Brooklyn with his husband and his very favorite subject, their son Simon.
