David Shechter

Born and raised in the SoHo artist district of New York City, David was first drawn to photography by the storytelling aspects of the still image. He got his start in film and photography as a child making 8mm short films.

While attending the High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts in New York City, his love for the still image grew. Upon graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, with a BFA in Photography, David launched his professional career as a photographer. Initially working on documentary projects and shooting for The New York Times, he later shifted into commercial applications of the art, focusing on fashion and beauty.


Always continuing with his personal work and finding inspiration in shapes, texture and light David has done a series of abstract architectural work and most recently a collaborative series with artist, Judy Lipman Shechter.
