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. Capturing real moments on real misadventures got me hooked. Now I bring the studio on location and the outdoors into the studio, treating the production process as a team sport and thriving 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 not playing with light, find me backcountry skiing, mountain biking, drift boating, canoeing, or looking for my Creedence tapes in a van down by the river.


I am a photographer in REI's media studio. I get to collaborate with inspiring photographers, stylists, editors, art directors, designers, producers, models, teammates, and friends to create gorgeous images on a daily basis.

I produce videos with Waist Deep Media and Rogel Media. I have worked in photography at Cascade Designs, Seattle Met Magazine, Harper Studios, and evo.

I studied Commercial Photography at Seattle Central Creative Academy. I also studied photography at the University of Washington Continuum College, where I am on the Advisory Board for the Certificate in Photography program.

I graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in International Relations and Global Business. I am a former management consultant and business intelligence developer.

I volunteer with Big City Mountaineers, Washington Trails Association, and Olympic National Park.
