Impromptu shoot with Lily

We were just sitting in the office and decided the light was good enough for a shoot. I miss shoots like this. No planning or preparation--just grab the camera and try to avoid traffic. I'm hoping we can do more this winter.

Sunset Test Shoot with Lily

Lily and I have been talking about shooting for half a year. We finally found the time (and weather!) to squeeze in a quick test shoot. She’s an amazing photographer herself, so she was basically reading my mind while we wandered around this spot on a dirt road in Central Montana. We already have plans... Continue Reading →

52 Portraits 2022

Better late than never, right? I kinda knew I wanted to shoot this year's photos with the Canon M6, so I had to wait until I picked it up. But, we're off and running. Here's the obligatory self portrait, and 1 of 52. As always, the full gallery can be found at 52.daniel.photo. Let's get... Continue Reading →

Canon EOs M6 Mk II

I know, I know--I switched to Sony almost 5 years ago. But I missed my old M3 with the 22mm ƒ2 lens. It was the perfect walking around camera. The Sony A7R III is a small camera, but Sony just doesn't have a pancake lens I like. So I bought the M6 and the 22mm.... Continue Reading →

Tattoo shoot with Marissa

Marissa wanted to do a shoot to highlight her tattoos, and I was 100% on board. I've always been a fan of awesome and meaningful ink, and now that I rent an office I have a good indoor place to shoot (it was damn cold last week.) Lily assisted as a stylist, and we lit... Continue Reading →

Year in Photos 2021

The 52 Portraits project was actually pretty successful this year, and I feel like I did more model shoots in 2021 than I did in 2020 (obviously--Covid.) I added some stats this year to get a better idea of trends. Instead of just number of photos, I grabbed number of picks and 5-star rated photos... Continue Reading →

Marissa and Heather Downtown

I'm always torn between night time neon portraits and gritty, grainy, black and white night portraits. We did both over the course of two nights. Marissa had access to several different dresses, so we experimented with a few. Going back to the previous post about the Sony A7R III and Auto ISO, the second night... Continue Reading →

Downtown Great Falls

Awhile back, I said I was going to be doing more mobile posting. That lasted what, a month? Going to give it another shot. On Friday, I wandered around downtown Great Falls with Marissa and her friend shooting some night-time portraits. In between wardrobe changes, I got to grab a few shots of downtown itself....
