Hey there! I’m Daniel, a passionate portrait photographer and educator who’s determined to uplift and motivate fellow photographers worldwide. My goal is simple: to empower you to become the best photographer you can be!
Ever since I began my professional photography journey back in 2013, I’ve poured countless hours into honing my craft, pushing boundaries, and falling head over heels for the art of capturing Portraits. So if there’s anyone who knows what it’s like to grow 2 full-time photography businesses, you’re looking at him!
As a full-time photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a diverse range of people from couples tying the knot to growing families, expectant mothers, adorable newborns, and everything in between. And now, I’m thrilled to share my hard-earned knowledge with you through my carefully crafted online photography classes that promise to transform your skills and techniques.
I’ll teach you everything you need to know about portrait photography and post-production skills in a way that’s easy to understand and put into practice. My aim is to help you see the world through a professional photographer’s eyes, so you too can create award-winning shots that capture the essence of any moment.
So, whether you’re a seasoned photographer or just starting, join me on this exciting journey to explore the beauty of portrait photography together!

Great tutorial! Daniel is the best!

Great use of dodge & burn (so much easier digitally than in a darkroom!) to give added dimension to portraits.
Plus a very useful technique for minimising wrinkles with a natural result. Perfect for clients that want to look ‘real’.
Daniel is an amazing teacher!!

Packed with examples for using the dodge & burn technique for multiple applications (adding depth & dimension to images, smoothing clothing, minimising wrinkles & skin imperfections) along with the very useful ‘trick’ of utilising a black & white layer to better visualise the light & dark areas of your image. Highly recommended.
An excellent tutorial! Easy to follow with samples that help you develop the sense of light and dark. Seeing the luminance values that create shape!
Elizabeth Jansen –
setting the image to black and white is brilliant. Thank you for helping me see and understand more about luminosity in my images.
Aparna Rautela –
Very well explained. Its a treasure of information on the finer details of editing. The introduction of the black and white layer was a game changer. Thank you!

Of all the tutorial I’ve see, you stop to explain things so much better. I’ve been using Photoshop since the first version ever came out and I still have learned from your tutorials, Thanks!
