Hi I'm Daniel,
I like provocation.
I wanna move ya.
I enjoy watching a good, strong reaction.
When making music, shooting film or pictures I have the same goal.
I wanna get inside your head, behind you barriers and play with your heart.
Hope your heart likes to play :)

The worst thing could think of that could possibly happen is illiciting a bored response from my viewer. Consequently I am continually searching for an untried avenue, a challenging medium to convey my intention.
I've been experimenting with cameras for many years, building my own sets and lighting rigs. I like to keep my sets minimal, clear focussed with a spirit of experimentation.
I have been directing/co-directing/shooting/dping/collaborating on my own work for over 15 years. I have all the basic camera and lighting gear I need and hire in stuff i don't have.
I like high contrast and rich, lush tones and surfaces. Fire, water, nature, movement.
There is no one set process to my work that i always follow. Each project requires a different approach. More often than not I'll just keep experimenting till I'm loving it!
I work with paid models, friends, and models looking for a good portfolio. If I'm inspired by you and you like my work, maybe we can create together. Pop me a message on this site and we'll go from there. I live in and around the Los Angeles area but I am continually traveling across the globe for projects.
