NAME / David Nicholas Walker
LIVES & WORKS / New Jersey & New York City
ABOUT / David is 22 year old photographer who grew up in North Jersey. In the middle of his high school years he moved to the shore and attended Manasquan High School. His dreams became true, as he always wanted to live by the beach. A whole new vision and spark of creativity was born. David became inspired by a whole new landscape he had to explore and frequently went out shooting new scenes. His work was published in the Asbury Park Press' book The Real Jersey Shore, and local newspaper The Coaster. His landscape submission in a competition placed second nationwide.
In 2014, David began an internship with photographer Danny Sanchez and quickly had a newly found appreciation for commercial and editorial portraiture. In January of 2015, David had a shift in vision and began to enjoy shooting lifestyle portraits and working with models. David's focus is his portraits are to bring out emotion in his subjects, to have their voice be heard. He would describe his style to have a lifestyle-esque editorial feel to his images.
David's future plans include continuing his focus on portraits, mainly editorial and model work. Upon finishing college in the fall, he has plans to begin working with agency's in New York City, and eventually wishes to pursue his dream of moving to Los Angeles and continue his career on the West Coast.
