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 →
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 →
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 →

Marissa and I have been planning to shoot up at First People's Buffalo Jump for months now. Winter hours made it difficult earlier in the year, but we finally found an opportunity to run up there last week. It's an amazing landscape, and Marissa rocked it. The wind was picking up by the time we... Continue Reading →
Finding models in Central Montana is tough, yo. But, a while back I found Marissa. We've done a couple shoots so far, and we have a ton of ideas for future shoots. She's great to work with, and patient enough to deal with the fact that I'm a little rusty with the portrait shoots. Gotta... Continue Reading →
I was lucky enough to meet Meagan for happy hour while I was in Portland, and grabbed this shot of her before she left.
