David McClister

David McClister David McClister has worked with some of the most treasured musicians in the Americana landscape. His photographs and films are often considered to not only reflect his subjects but to define them in so many ways. The Nashville-based veteran filmmaker and music video director grew up in the South and first picked up a still camera at the urging of his wife.

Through photographing local bands and musicians that he admired, he fell in love with the freedom and spontaneity of the medium. David currently divides his time between photo assignments and directing films, commercials and music videos. His photography has appeared on many major label artist releases, and in such publications as Rolling Stone, GQ, Esquire, The Wall Street Journal, TIME, Garden & Gun and Billboard.

"David has a wonderful eye. His photos are never a shock, meaning his pictures of me look exactly how I picture myself. He's a joy to work with, and he never makes me feel like I'm being forced into anything. Still not sure if that's because he's sneaky and really good, or just really good.” - Jason Isbell
