David De Silva - As a Bay Area native I am still discovering
new things about why I love northern California. My
current focus and passion is shooting dance. Dance
in the bay area is thriving, and I'm grateful to have an
opportunity to work with an array of talented dancers and
choreographers. Capturing the expressive movement in
artists that have put all their efforts into perfecting their craft
is thrilling for me. My inspiration for photography ignited
when I began capturing my amazing twin daughters on
film. Shooting dance came from a chance opportunity to
photograph my Pilates instructor and former Company
C Contemporary Ballet dancer Mario Espinosa at a tech
rehearsal. Presently, I'm enjoying the challenge of shooting
outside of the theatre in unexpected venues, working with
strobes and natural light and occasionally
mixing in paint just for fun.
