Hi, I’m Daniel . I bought my first nice camera in 2010. I was a college student and definitely spent way more than I should have on it. Later that year, I shot a picture of my best friend and his wife, fiance at the time. I thought I was a really awesome photographer when they printed a huge copy of it. I had stumbled upon a great picture, but I had so much to learn. They say it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert. I feel like between photography courses, YouTube videos and taking pictures, I am getting pretty close to that number. I’ve shot thousands of photographs and hundreds of videos. I’ve tried landscape photography, real estate photography, and even nature photography. Nothing gets me as excited as portrait photography. Since I was a kid, I have always wanted to be with people. I love hearing their stories and telling my own. When I picked up that camera for the first time, I knew I was going to take pictures of people, but I had no idea it would lead me here.
