Another reason to embrace winter… the edited backdrop it provides. Love this!

Story
Tagline
National Geographic Creative Photographer
Introduction
Photographer David Bowman hails from Chicago, studied in Madison, traversed the Australian outback via camel, and drifted to the Twin Cities some time thereafter. One of the first people he met after arriving in Minnesota was fashion photographer Richard Avedon. Bowman asked him what advice he might give a struggling artist, and Avedon responded, “Start working." So he did, ultimately shooting for the likes of Vanity Fair, TIME, Glamour,  National Geographic, ESPN, and Dwell. In 2013, Bowman graduated with his MFA, Valedictorian of the Graduate School, and became a full member of National Geographic Creative.
