BIOGRAPHY



Born in 1969, David Ellingsen is originally from Cortes Island, a remote community of 1000 residents in Canada’s Pacific Northwest. Raised on a small family farm surrounded by forest and ocean, his photography is rooted in this rural upbringing.

David is an artist whose work has run on two parallel paths, each fueling the other and often crossing...

He began his photographic career at the age of 30 in the advertising and editorial fields, attracting client assignments that include the New York Times Magazine, Men’s Health, People, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and agencies DDB and Grey Worldwide.

Running concurrently, David’s personal exhibition photographs have been shown since 2001 in multiple solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the USA, Asia, and Europe and are part of the permanent collections of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, the Dana Farber Cancer Centre at Harvard University and the Chinese Museum of Photography. Recent work was shortlisted for Photolucida's Critical Mass Book Award, awarded First Place at the Prix de la Photographie Paris (PX3) in Paris, France and also First Place at the International Photography Awards in Los Angeles.

David now divides his time between Vancouver, Victoria and Cortes Island in British Columbia, Canada.
