David Darby

David Darby, ASC, is a cinematographer based in Los Angeles, California.

Since 1985, Darby has been shooting commercials non-stop around the world with many of the most accomplished and celebrated directors ever to take on the genre.

Prior to his commercial days, Darby was a director-cameraman on PBS documentaries and programming.

His love for photography began with a passion for black and white photojournalism at age 12. While studying Advanced Photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology, an introductory class to film production bumped him in that direction and a full-time position opened-up within Eastman Kodak Company’s in-house Motion Picture Production Department. There, he learned film making from the ground up; everything from editing and cinematography to conforming A and B rolls for finished films. His first solo effort as a Director/Cameraman on a documentary film won the 1977 New York State Craftsmen International Film Festival and was aired nationally by PBS.
