After a successful career as a Soloist with Pacific Northwest Ballet, Angela Sterling turned to her second passion, photography. Following the lead of Steven Caras of the New York City Ballet, who in the 1980's photographed while being a dancer during George Balanchine's time, Angela was inspired and went to photography school to learn the basics. Soon after she moved to Europe where she quickly carved out a niche creating stunning images of dancers in action using her instinctive dancer's timing for the top ballet companies.
In addition to her shooting for ballet companies, she also spent time in New York City working in the fashion and editorial world. The perfect combination came together when she combined her dancer's timing and fashion style in the studio. This is where Angela's work is greatly enhanced by her dancer background, working along with the dancer in their own language to create the perfect position in rich style.
Angela has created images for many marketing campaigns and commercially around the world. Along with shooting every season for Pacific Northwest Ballet (Seattle), Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Dutch National Ballet (Amsterdam), Boston Ballet, Alonzo King's LINES (San Francisco), & Dresden Semper Opera Ballet, her images are seen regularely in New York Times, USA Today, Dutch VOGUE, Paris ELLE, and international dance publications including Pointe Magazine, Danse Magazine (Paris), Dance Europe (London) and Ballet Tanz (Germany). Most recently she had much fun in Paris photographing for friend and Tony Award Winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon in his successful new Broadway show 'An American in Paris'.
Angela's work is showcased in the Penthouse Suite's at Kimpton's Alexis Hotel in Seattle and has a permanent installation of two 28 foot murals images in the lobby of Price Waterhouse Cooper corporate headquarters in Amsterdam.
