Following a brief stint as a fake photojournalist, Daniel lost his formative teens to the darkroom. He has spent the last several years trying to get them back.
He focuses his characteristic squint and dark, moody, shooting style on corporate actors, performers, rock stars, CEOs, scientists, doctors, Olympians, and himself.
Daniel produces, corporate, advertising, and editorial photography for firms and publications across Canada, the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
Clients include Proctor & Gamble, TD Canada Trust, Torys, Rogers, CBC, Joseph L. Rotman, XM Satellite Radio, Osler, Honda Canada, the National Ballet School, Dalet, Sick Kids Foundation, the Walrus, American Lawyer Magazine, National Post, the Globe & Mail, and Fortune Magazine.
He has been in mortal danger on three separate occasions, one of which was serious.
Described as “unnerving, yet strangely endearing“, perhaps Gene Simmons put it best when he said to Daniel “I like you, you’re a nice guy, but you cannot take my picture.“
Daniel works in Toronto and lives in his head.
