About Daniel


Hello there, thank you for stopping by my website! I grew up in colorful Colorado, but currently reside in northern California while pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience.

I first picked up a camera in 2008 after finishing my undergraduate degree in Biology. I became interested in photography as a way to express myself artistically, as well as indulge the side of me which loves technology. I quickly became passionate about taking photographs and started to study the art intensively. One of the things that drew me to the camera was the ability to capture a bit of the world with an entirely different perspective. Many people can photograph the same exact scene and each photo can be vastly different. It’s this originality to a picture that really drives me to pursue photography.

Over the past several years my hobby as a photographer has blossomed into a passion. I am also an avid backpacker who loves going on multi-day trips to the high Sierra Nevada mountains and other wilderness areas, and i’ve found it to be an excellent compliment to my photography. The places one can journey to with a backpack are so remote and far-removed from the ordinary human experience, it can feel like a blessing to capture the beauty and share it with people.

Thanks again for stopping by, and if you have any questions or comments please shoot me an email!
