Welcome to the IAM family David!
David Chancellor inherited his interest in photography from his father, and started taking photographs of the World around him from an early age. After an unfulfilling early career in banking, he studied photography at Kent Institute of Art and Design. He is currently based in Cape Town South Africa and travels extensively working on personal projects and commissions for a broad spectrum of clients, shooting documentary reportage and portraiture. His work is exhibited in major galleries and museums, and published Worldwide.
Named Nikon photographer of the year three times, he received a World Press Photo in 2010 for ‘Elephant Story’ from the series ‘Hunters’. A study of his wife and son was exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery London (2009), and the following year he won the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize (2010), at the National Portrait Gallery, with ‘Huntress with Buck’ from the series ‘Hunters’. In 2011 he was shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Organization Award.
