About

David Gill is an all-round visual creative erring on the side of social documentary and overseas development with a background in urban youth culture. Key skills include documentary photography, videography, creative writing, collaborating with lifestyle brands and NGOs as well as traditional media outlets. I have travelled to over forty countries working to a wide portfolio of commercial briefs.

International Development / Skills transfer
Recently I have helped set up foundation for US R&B artist Akon in Senegal and also worked on a Save the Children participatory photography project for tsunami-affected youth in Sri Lanka for Save the Children. I have also organised and led a photography project for ghetto kids in Kingston, Jamaica.

Documentary Photography
Recent projects include; Nollywood – the Nigerian film industry, Area Boys – street gangs in Lagos, West African migrants in Morocco, police brutality in Jamaica and Iraq where he was embedded with the British troops. Clients include Esquire, Mail On Sunday, GQ, The Observer, Arena as well as numerous underground titles.

Brand collaborations
As a photographer I have worked with brands on many projects. Not in an advertising capacity but documenting urban trends and events both in the UK and oversees for the likes of Puma, Nokia, Adidas, Converse and records labels WEA and Independiente from product launches to sourcing ‘cool content’ to documenting the Cameroon national team at a tournament in Africa.

As ever my passion is centered on the developing world and its urban environments and culture.
