Hi! I'm Daniel. I'm a commercial and editorial photographer from Seattle, Washington. I specialize in outdoor adventure lifestyle, product, and portrait photography. 

I create imagery that inspires folks to get outside, seek adventure, and connect with wild places. I capture real moments on real adventures. I bring the studio on location and the outdoors into the studio. I treat the production process as a team sport and thrive when problem-solving in creative collaboration. 

My work has been featured by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, REI, Therm-a-Rest, MSR, evo, Fly Fisherman Magazine, The Flyfish Journal, and the Fly Fishing Film Tour, among others.

When I'm not in the studio, on location, or in the editing cave, you might find me backcountry skiing, mountain biking, fly fishing, or looking for my Creedence tapes in a van down by the river.
