David Yarrow has built an unrivaled reputation for capturing the beauty of the planet’s remote landscapes, cultures and endangered animals. Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966, he is now an internationally acclaimed fine art photographer and is currently the world’s best-selling wildlife photographer.
The equipment that he takes with him on location will naturally vary according to the subject matter of the assignment and the lighting conditions/climate of the environment in which he is photographing.
For Yarrow, time, commitment and patience are the foundation stones of taking great photographs. He has a clean, contextual and emotive style and strives to capture images that transcend mainstream offerings. Visiting some of the most isolated and pristine regions in the world, Yarrow photographs animal and human inhabitants in their natural, jaw-dropping environments. He goes to extraordinary lengths to capture his subjects in their most raw, authentic forms, often conducting extensive research and completely immersing himself in his subject’s habitat. His dedication to portraying nature’s most precious and dangerous wildlife is truly astonishing. Yarrow is not only devoted to depicting wildlife in its most genuine state, but is also committed to protecting it through his work as the affiliated photographer of Tusk Trust, a leading African conservation charity for which HRH Prince William is the Royal Patron. Yarrow’s “The Prize” is a prime example of feminine power. The females of the pride are the providers, with the males feasting in on their victories. Yarrow’s photograph evokes the sense of determination and strength that are characteristic of the lionesses.
