David Bowman

Photographer David Bowman hails from Chicago, studied in Wisconsin, and traversed the Australian Outback on a camel, finally making his home (and studio) in Minneapolis. Shortly after arriving in Minnesota, he met famed fashion photographer Richard Avedon, who gave the then-struggling artist a piece of advice: “Start working.”

Bowman took that advice to heart. He has shot for commercial clients such as Disney, Anheuser-Busch, the Minnesota State Fair, and Johnson & Johnson. His editorial photographs have been published in National Geographic, Vanity Fair, Men’s Journal, Glamour, and the Wall Street Journal. Bowman graduated as the valedictorian from his MFA class at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2013, and his art photographs have been exhibited in galleries across the U.S.
