It’s amazing what work can await you when you choose a specialty — and one that you are passionate about. Who knew that a booming business could be found in Dance Photography?
Angela Sterling was a dancer but when she ruptured two discs in 1996, it caused her to re-examine her future.
She thought, “What else can I do?’ I went through my (publicity) photographs and only three were reasonable. I told the marketing director of the company, ‘There has to be someone who can do it better.’ ”
She decided to be that someone.
She thought, “I am a dancer and I know what looks good. No more pictures of dancers in terrible positions.”
Angela is an amazing photographer with a wonderful career.
She’s published a Nutcracker coffee table book, done work for dancewear retailers, like Vala Dancewear and Class Act Tutu, and ballet companies, like the Pacific Northwest Ballet, and travels the world.
