About Daniel

A 2012 attendee of the famed Missouri Photo Workshops, my award-winning photography has been featured in prominent books, magazines, calendars and websites around the globe. Most recently, I was asked to write the Foreword for Nature Photography Photo Workshop, a top-selling paperback published by Wiley & Sons and available on Amazon. I'm currently developing my own photo-documentary book, Americana Lost: Chasing Dreams in Small-Town America.

Nothing beats the artistic and technical insight you’ll gain from working one-on-one with a skilled artisan in the field. My photography tutoring is catered towards areas and skills that you would like to develop.

From beginner to advanced hobbyist, learn the essentials, absorb an expert philosophy and master your craft. Mentoring is very informal and fun, yet focused to help you fine tune your vision or get past a mental block that is preventing you from taking your photography to a higher level.

Specializing in landscape and environmental portraits (including street photography, travel, and photo-documentary work), my vivid images are often described as having a painterly quality to them, drawing the eye into a thoughtfully composed mélange of color, light, line, texture, tone and perspective.

I aspire to capture images that evoke emotion, while at the same time showcasing my passion for beautiful natural landscapes. In another facet of my work, my portraits aim to capture the essence and spirit of my subjects in much the same way that a poet seeks to understand the world in human terms through literary composition.

I strongly believe in a pay it forward approach - and will dedicate myself to sharing all of my technical, artistic and philosophical knowledge with any student.

On a personal note, I am the proud father of three beautiful children and am very comfortable teaching any age group - and at all skill levels (I am background-check approved). From technical to composition; from digital to film - I can help you realize your photographic goals.

Testimonial from Molly Bang, Caldecott award-winning author and illustrator of Picture This: How Pictures Work.

Your photographs are beautiful. You have both strength and delicacy together. And clarity even in the most moody pictures.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Photography

I currently conduct private workshops and tutoring - and have done so for many years.

Knowledgable and Skilled Photography Tutor

I chose the right tutor for my daughter! At first, after being contacted by several tutors, I was tempted to choose the cheapest. However, we all know that you only get what you pay for. I'm so glad we chose Daniel. Daniel is knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I liked being able to visit his web site to view some of his awesome photographs.
