David Urbanke (b. August 1994) is a photographer based in New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA.

Beginning photography in his teens, David got an early start and has has had time to explore his craft. Initially interested in drawing and painting, he fell in love with photography at the age of fifteen and quickly realized it was going to be a lifelong passion. 

David prides himself on connecting with his subjects and always creating a safe, fun environment where talent feels at ease. There is a sense of intimacy that comes through in his images which stems from his interactions with talent on set and his ability to make people feel comfortable.  David has photographed recognizable faces such as Kerry Washington, Michael B. Jordan, Elisabeth Moss, Joe Jonas, Lakeith Stanfield, Tan France, and more.
