About David Fonda
David Fonda is an award winning architectural and interiors photographer based in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. With a background in fine art, and experience in the editorial, corporate, and industrial, as well as architectural spheres, he combines a refined eye, an eagerness to comprehend, and a desire to communicate, with a business mind-set, and ‘behind the scenes’ understanding.

His clients include architects, interior designers, real estate investment firms & developers, architectural product manufacturers, construction companies, advertising agencies & graphic designers, and editorial.
David earned his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography from Ohio University. He worked as a photo-journalist at two suburban Philadelphia daily newspapers, including the award winning Today’s Post. He went on to work as a corporate photographer for ARMCO, Inc., then a Fortune 50 industrial corporation, and CoreStates Financial, a regional bank.
