David Urbanke

When David Urbanke was just 16-years-old, he left high school in New Jersey and headed to NYC in pursuit of his budding photography career. Shortly after, ABC News caught wind of David's talent, and he began landing major gigs for publications and clients including Ford Models, Flaunt  Magazine,, Bullett, Marc Jacobs Intl, Tumblr, Ones2Watch, AnOther, and more. Now, at just 20-years-old, David's captured some of today's most in-demand models in stunning, intimate works of portraiture. In addition, David works tirelessly at New York Fashion Weeks, gaining backstage access and capturing impressive runway photography for Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Anna Sui, Rochambeau, Patrik Ervell, Peter Som and Marc Jacobs, among other designers. We can't get enough of David's Instagram and blog, taking us along this incredible ride (including that time he met Carine Roitfeld!) throughout NYC. We're keeping our eyes on David and you should too!
