At the heart of David Urbanke’s work is an intimate connection with his subject. The twenty-eight year old photographer and New Jersey native got his start when he was a teenager, shooting interesting people he met on the street. As his career has progressed, David has been able to hone in on his own unique style of shooting. He brings the raw aesthetic of his early work, but it is balanced by polished finishes. Overall, he favors a clean and minimal aesthetic.
The first step in David’s approach is always the same: get to know his subject (whoever or whatever that may be). From there, his creative flow is highly adaptable based on the size and scale of the project. He has the innate ability to seemingly remove his subject from the production, making them feel safe, at ease, and capturing their most authentic self. His style is dynamic, often utilizing soft lighting, warm tones, and color blocking.
