LAST WEEKEND WE TALKED TO YOU ABOUT TRAVELING. PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT REASONS TO DO THIS. FOR DAVID COSTA IT IS PRETTY OBVIOUS. WORKING AS A PERSONAL TRAINER, HE HAS CLIENTS IN SEVERAL PARTS OF FRANCE AND SWITZERLAND. BESIDES THAT, HIS MODEL ACTIVITIES BRING HIM TO OTHER PARTS IN THE WORLD. THE UNITED KINGDOM BEING ONE OF THEM. WHICH IS WHERE HE MET DYLAN ROSSER.
David Costa resides in the eastern French city Dijon, which is the capital of the Burgundy area. Spicy as the famous Dijon mustard, and full and sensuous as a rich Burgundy red, David divides his time between Paris, Geneva, Lausanne and his home town, both as a well-educated personal trainer and salsa instructor. This last passion is probably embedded in David’s DNA. Even though born in France, his family name already gives away 24-year old David has Spanish blood running through his veins. And this Latin ingredient might very well explain the fact everything he does he does with conviction and great passion.
Not just a personal trainer, David Costa has a French state diploma in fitness and a master degree in physical training, guaranteeing that you are in good hands if David takes care of you. His well sculpted body does not only come from spending time in the gym though. Ever since he was a kid David has been practicing sports, varying from soccer, swimming and tennis, to cycling, rollerblading and cross-country training. Since two years David is also active as a model, and has already caught the eye of numerous international active photographers, such as Mark Leighton, Nicolas Andrew, Ernest Collins, JC Genisset and Fred Goudon, who used David for his interpretation of the annual Dieux Du Stade calendar (version 2006).Recently added to the list is Dylan Rosser.
As mentioned before, Dylan Rosser has been working hard at the publication of his second photo book, entitled RED. The book will be released later this year and will contain some work that can be found on his web portfolio but – even more important – also work that Dylan shot specially for RED. The session with David is a good example of that. Scheduled for Red, David’s portraits won’t be available on Dylan’s website for now. If you want to see more of David – and let us tell you, from what Dylan shared with us we guarantee you there is quite a bit more to see – you will have to wait for RED to hit the shelves. -B-
