About Me

Hiya, folks. The name's Dan Frioli. Rhymes with "ravioli." If you still can't pronounce it, "Danny Beans" will do just fine.

I'm a photographer, cook, musician, jack of all trades and freelance bum who's looking to meet interesting people, take great pictures, and maybe make a buck or two in the process. I have years of experience in both traditional portraiture and fine art/nature photography, which I combine with a minimalist approach for an organic, natural feel.

Okay, so that's a very pretentious way of saying that my very favorite kind of shoot is just me, a subject, and a camera, without the truckload of other equipment that seems so vital these days (a chaperone is welcome, as long as they understand that they might be asked to help out). I'm happy working just about anywhere, though I do have access to a studio should the need arise. It's not fancy, it's not glamorous, but I've gotten some good pictures out of it so far.

In a complete contradiction to what I just said, I also enjoy playing with unusual lighting - you can see a few examples in my portfolio. I take an inordinate amount of pride in the fact that all my effects are created in the studio, rather than on a computer. When you look at my effect photography, you're seeing what the camera saw.

Please don't contact me asking me to pay you for a shoot. I'm happy to work TF (schedule permitting), but do ask for gas money if I have to drive more than 35 miles to get to you.

I've also done some acting and modeling myself, and have a model page set up here on the Mayhem: #2804753.

With that, I leave you with these words:
"One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important." - Bertrand Russell

Says it all, really.
