Into The Wild

Behind the scenes with David Yarrow and his unconventional approach to wildlife photography

Glasgow-born, London-based David Yarrow created his first major camera-in-hand success with the now-classic image of the legendary Diego Maradona at the 1986 World Cup final in Mexico City for The London Times. Assignments to cover the Olympics and other major sporting events soon followed. These early forays into the world of professional photography gave little clue to where he would end up decades later.

The 21st century has seen Yarrow refocus his energies on creating black-and white-portraits of the great athletes of the natural world, from lions and tigers to orangutans and polar bears. Fusing art and commerce, he has firmly established himself as one of the bestselling fine art photographers in the world with limited-edition prints selling for over $70,000 apiece.
