About David

           In the roots of my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, you will find me on assignment for magazines telling visually engaging stories about places, capturing unique personalities, and teaming up with businesses and institutions to strengthen their marketing efforts. I also work with individuals to elevate their stories through headshots, environmental portraits, and personal branding from my studio in Lakewood Ohio.

          One of my true passions is photographing Americana and Route 66. This interest was ignited when I took an unforgettable road trip on Route 66 back in 2004 just after completing my formal photography education. Since that defining trip, I’ve been working with ‘mom and pop’ businesses to tell their stories and promote them. I regularly work on assignment for tourism and visitors bureaus to showcase Route 66 communities, and alongside leading non-profits, including the Road Ahead Partnership, to  highlight Route 66 and bring it back to its deserved  glory. 

          I’ve also been a part of ROUTE magazine since its inception over 5 years ago and have since graduated to Director of Photography and Lead Editorial Photographer of the publication. Back home in Cleveland, I’ve shown my Route 66 art in my own studio and local museums to folks that wonder about Route 66, piquing their interest and growing a larger audience for the road. My journey is more than I could have ever fathomed and I’m so very grateful for it.



  When I’m not behind the lens, I enjoy spending my time road-tripping, hiking, camping, sailing, working on home improvement projects, grooving to live music, sitting around a fire with friends sharing stories, and savoring meaningful moments with my family, Shannon, Vivian, and Reed.

"When I first began to research my first trip down Route 66, one photographer's images were showing up online on every key website. They were pictures of the Mother Road that went well beyond anything else that I was seeing. There was emotion in David Schwartz's beautiful pictures. They told a story of their own. I knew that I had to have them included in my upcoming book, Miles to Go: An African Family in Search of America along Route 66. They were and are the finest Route 66 images that I have seen to date, and I have the privilege of working with some pretty talented photographers."

 -Brennen Matthews, Author of "MILES to GO"
