Photographer David Turner is best known for his 25 year career in NYC working for top magazines like W Magazine photographing the latest fashions to a beautifully lit portrait of designer Ralph Lauren to a still life of the newest fragrance. Constantly running to the newsstand to see other popular photographers from the New York Times Magazine or Italian Vogue to competitively compare or secretly admire the beautiful and powerful medium of photography, Turner has had to keep a pulse on this constantly changing industry not from the outside looking in but from the inside where all the decisions are being made by Editors, Creative Directors and leading Designers.
That’s what makes Turner a real photographer’s photographer. He is knowledgeable yet appreciative of what’s new and sees the potential of a budding talent. Turner as of late has been teaching location lighting at Rochester Institute of Technology, the premiere photo school, and continues to enlighten and amaze young photographers everywhere.
