David Yarrow Biography

David Yarrow was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966. As a 20-year-old, he 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.

David’s evocative and immersive photography of life on earth is most distinctive. He is now recognised as one of the best-selling fine art photographers in the world and his limited edition works regularly sell at high prices at Sotheby’s and other auction houses.

In September 2019, Rizzoli published their second book by David Yarrow. The books foreword was written by global NFL star Tom Brady and an afterword written by American cultural icon Cindy Crawford.

David’s position in the industry has been rewarded with 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 recently been integral to the company’s 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 can be seen in airports around the world. In January 2019 David was appointed as a global ambassador for UBS. In 2018 and 2019 David’s work raised over $4.5m for philanthropic and conservation orgranisations. At Art Miami in December 2019, David’s photograph 'The Wolves of Wall Street' broke new records. One print, signed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, sold for $200,000. The proceeds went to conservation NGOs supported by DiCaprio.

In April 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, David joined the Art For Heroes campaign, to raise money for the NHS. He released a print - Our Pride - with all proceeds going to HEROES. The campaign has surpassed its original target of £1m.
