David Høgsholt is a Danish photographer based in Shanghai. He is a two-time World Press Photo award winner as well as the recipient of a combined eight Picture of the Year International and Best of Photojournalism awards.

Whether shooting editorial and documentary assignments or portraits and corporate work, David's trademark is his ability to capture emotions and bringing them to the viewer in beautiful and evocative visuals.

David has worked for editorial publications such as The New Yorker, Time, Geo, Stern, National Geographic and The New York Times.

His corporate clients include, amongst others, Ferrari, Volkswagen, Stiehl, GKN, IKEA, Osram and Silicon Valley Bank.

David is increasingly shooting video and working on ways to combine his love of water with his addiction to stunning visuals and moving stories.

When not shooting, David can often be found freediving in the nearest ocean or teaching photography.
