Models

Though I still occasionally do some paid work, I prefer to collaborate with other creative people to conceive awesome photos. Models are encouraged to get in touch if you think we'd work well together. There's no money in it, but it's fun and we all end up with photos we can use for self promotion or social media, or any other non-commercial purposes.

If someone does end up wanting to license an image shot during a collaboration, and we both approve, payment is split 50/50 between photographer and model.

Restaurants

I. Love. Local.

Family-owned, built-from-scratch, local businesses get my business whenever humanly possible. So I like to help them when I can. I want to see small businesses thrive.

How can I help you and your business? Photos, social media setup, web design, graphic design. You name it, if I can help, I will. Affordably.

Examples

Asian Kichen Grill

Asian Kitchen Grill is a small, family-owned restaurant in the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. I first met the owners after moving into the neighborhood back in 2014. I realized they needed a website, and for the website they needed photography, and the rest is history.

Website

We built Asian Kitchen Grill's website on Squarespace. It's responsive, and looks great on desktops, tablets, and mobile. Over time, we found that the vast majority of visitors were visiting the site on their phone, and were almost always visiting the menu page. We redesigned the site to put most of the content (including the menu,) on the first page to cut down on the number of taps it took to get to the most popular content.

We shot all the food photography at the restaurant over the course of several months.

TESTIMONIALS

The people I've worked with are awesome. Sometimes they say nice things about me, too.

Daniel is a phenomenal photographer. He makes every photoshoot fun and productive. Never been disappointed. Every shoot has been an amazing experience and very professional. Daniel does a great job with letting you know what is and isn’t working in a shoot. He gives great coaching advice like where to stand and how to pose, this creates one of a kind photos. He is very creative and outgoing. I will 100% continue to use him as my photographer in the future. I have full confidence that each time will be successful and a blast.

Daniel photographed our soccer team and exceeded all expectations we had for a photographer. He was professional, personable and great at organizing a group of teenagers. I cannot even describe how impressed the parents were when we received our proofs! All of the pictures were excellent. Parents had a hard time choosing which ones to print. Daniel has a gift for taking an ordinary situations and giving it artistic flair. We have only praise for the way that he handled every level of the shoot.

Lots of girls dream of getting their senior photos taken at the beach. For my daughter that dream came true. Dan traveled many miles to meet us at the destination of our choice.

Many people can just take a picture, but Dan has the eye for beauty and perfection. He sees the details that most people wouldn’t see and creates magic!

My daughter’s senior pictures turned out amazing because of Dan. He is such a wonderful person, an amazing photographer and is wonderful to work with. Dan was the best choice we could have made!

I found myself in need of head shots immediately, and Daniel not only worked with me to make sure I would keep my deadline, but he helped me feel comfortable and relaxed about the whole process. Thanks, Daniel!

I'm often asked what I recommend for various things, and I decided it might be helpful to post all of my recommendations on one page. These are all things/services I use and believe in. If you have any questions about anything listed on this page, feel free to contact me.

This is a work in progress, and will most likely change as I try out new technology.
