David Goldman

David Goldman’s professional career began in 1994 when he left his hometown Toronto for Los Angeles. For 12 years David worked with the biggest record labels and television companies around such as Warner Brothers. During this time he created a body of iconic and memorable imagery for music, advertising and celebrity clientele. David’s captivating work features artists from Madonna to Muse, Blink 182 to Maynard James Keenan.

With his move to New York in 2005 David shifted his focus towards travel and advertising work, though he still enjoys the high fashion photography he shoots for the Look-A-Like TV series he recently hosted. One glance at his website attests to David’s extraordinary talent in his chosen field.
