Angela Sterling was born in Boston Massachusetts and trained with Boston Ballet until the age of 15. She joined Pacific Northwest Ballet at age 16 and was promoted to Soloist soon after. After 13 years with the company, Angela suffered a career-ending back injury. She then turned to her second passion, photography. After attending Boston's New England School of Photography she moved to Europe where she quickly carved out a niche for herself creating quality images using her instinctive dancer's timing. Angela shoots consistently for Pacific Northwest Ballet, Boston Ballet, Dutch National Ballet, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Royal Ballet of Flanders and Alonzo King's LINES in San Francisco. She has worked on marketing campaigns for BLOCH Dancewear, Mirella Dancewear, Class Act Tutu, VALA Dancewear and lululemon athletica.
