David Eggby is an Australian cinematographer. He was born in 1950 in London, but has lived in Melbourne since childhood. He received the Cinematographer of the Year (2001) and the Golden Tripod from the Australian Cinematographers Society, both for his work on the film Pitch Black.

Beginning his career as a photographer for the Royal Australian Navy, Eggby then moved on to work for Australian television production company Crawfords, working on such shows as Homicide and Matlock Police. Eggby's lucky break would be the low budget action film Mad Max.[1] Often risking personal injury, Eggby would perch himself on the back of a speeding motorbike to achieve adrenaline pumping shots for the cult favourite.[tone]
