David Johnson is an internationally published editorial photographer based in Chicago, Illinois.
While pursuing a theological studies degree and training to become a national level sprinter, David's work as a volunteer youth mentor brought him on several trips overseas where he began to grow as a photographer. As opportunities to share his images increased, he soon discovered photography's potential to fulfill a lifelong desire to understand people and their stories, and then share them with others.
In 2007, he founded DwJohnson Photography. Based from a studio in Chicago, David's work has brought him around the globe traveling throughout East Africa, Central America, Asia, India, and Eastern Europe. David's images are prominently featured in the award-winning global re-branding for Motorola Solutions, and have appeared in Times Square, Fitness Magazine, Michigan Avenue Magazine, and many other national and international forums. He has done extensive work with several non-profit and international aide organizations helping to raise funds for under-resourced communities in the developing world.
