David Leslie Anthony began his career in October 1989 in Los Angeles.  Later in 1990, David was selected to photograph the national advertising campaign for Z. Cavaricci, which paved the way to shooting for various denim companies and magazines in Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Vancouver, Canada.  In 1995, David moved to Paris to further his career by assisting various photographers, and shooting for magazines and agency work.  While in Paris, David also worked in Barcelona and Madrid.  David returned to North America after 4 years, relocating to Chicago in 1999, and began working in the Chicago, NYC, European, and Toronto markets.  In 2003, U.S. Ad Review selected David's Michelob Fashion Campaign as "Best Of" in the Beverage advertising section.  This was followed by working with Britney Spears for Pepsi U.K. and numerous other advertising campaigns.  During 2015, David was part of the photographic group showing in New York called "The Reflected Eye" which featured his work, alongside the works of many prominent photographers, both past and present.  Also in 2015, David received an Honorable Mention in "See Me Exposure Awards", and two of his fashion images were included in a showing at The Louvre in Paris.  In 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, David's fashion photographs have been part of the Photo Exhibition during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Malta.  David's work is also featured prominently in two books,  "Photographing Women: 1000 Poses" and "Outdoor Lighting: Fashion & Glamour".  David Leslie Anthony is based in the U.S., and currently lives in New Orleans, while dividing his working time between NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and Europe.

Photography can be a powerful medium.  For me, I draw from my memories of childhood, youth, the loves who have come in and out of my life, my travels, the things I see, and what I feel.  My personal work started out as images that only meant something to me.  I've been fortunate that many of these images have now found their way into galleries.  These photographs, both fashion and personal, tell the story of my life.  They tell the story of who I am, how I began, and where I'm at in life now.
