David Gallardo


Born in Portugalete, Spain, the son of a commercial diver, I’ve always had a passion for the ocean and for traveling. I grew up in Barcelona, where I became a scuba instructor – a job that’s taken me all over the world and eventually brought me to the Turks and Caicos.

I’ve had the opportunity to visit the Galapagos Islands, Cuba, South Africa, Bali and Egypt, to name a few places. Diving brought me to TCI in 1999, and I joined Tropical Imaging in 2003. I love shooting destination weddings and had an amazing opportunity to shoot a wedding in Bora Bora in August (you can see the photos on our blog). My passion for the ocean remains strong, though, and I also love shooting underwater – whether it’s marine life or wedding clients.

I discovered my newest passion on Oct. 21, 2013, when my wife Claire gave birth to our first daughter, Amy.
