Deborah Turbeville was born in Massachusetts and raised in New England. When she was twenty years old she moved to New York to where she became a sample model for Claire McCardell. The designer also introduced her to Diana Vreeland, at this time a fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar.

In 1960 Deborah became a fashion editorial assistant at Ladies' Home Journal and two years later she moved to Harper's Bazaar where she became a fashion editor.

Then she realized that her heart was in photography and secured a job at Diplomat magazine, where she begun to shoot her own pictures, in1967. Later this year, she became an associate fashion editor at Mademoiselle.

She has been taking photos ever since.

In 2002 she received a Fullbright scholarship for a lecture series on Photography at the Baltic School of Photography in Russia. In 2005 she taught at the Smolney Institut, also in St. Petersburg on behalf of Bard College.

Turbeville divides her time between New York and Mexico and always spends a great deal of time in St. Petersburg, Russia.
