David Newsom is a fine-art photographer based in Los Angeles.
A graduate of the Ithaca College Cinema Studies program, David worked in New York City in both film and still photography before moving to Los Angeles in 1990 to work in film and television.
As an accomplished actor and producer, David has used his love of storytelling to develop his unique eye as a photographer. In 2005, David’s photography work was discovered by Viggo Mortensen at Perceval Press which led to the publishing of the critically acclaimed book “SKIP“.
SKIP is a tribute in images and words to his family and the landscape of Idaho & Wyoming. David’s work has since been shown in numerous galleries across the country, and his work is in collections around the world.
