Hello. I'm Daniel. My corporate and editorial work has appeared in Fortune Magazine, The Globe and Mail, Report on Business, Toronto Star, National Post, Profits, Advantage, and The Walrus. Commercial clients include Mercedes Benz, BDC, Invesco, Shaw Media, Porter, McMillan, TD, RBC, Rogers, U of T, and the CBC. I've been fortunate to work with art directors and agencies throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe on editorial, annual report, and web-based projects. To this day I remain an enthusiastic collaborator. I was a late bloomer - I didn't go to university straight out of high school or travel the world when I was in my late teens. I started shooting head shots. Very very early on. Finding my authentic self was an adventure in self-discovery. This adventures carried me through the United States, Iceland, England, Scotland, Ireland, Cuba, Israel and the West Bank, Turkey, Greece, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Austria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia, Slovakia, Sarajevo, Bosnia & Hercegovina, Kosovo, Poland, and Russia. You've likely seen a few of my travel photos in Lonely Planet guides. Others became stock images, now distributed through Corbis, Getty, & National Geographic. I spent a lot of time in urban areas, often formerly war-torn or post-communist which burned me out. I studied 20th century history, Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations, and Fine Art History at U of T, so there were heavy stories along the way. Today I explore gentler climes with my legs, sometimes taking a break to hop in a canoe (or kayak), before pitching a tent for the night. I've hiked through the Tatra Mountains (Poland), Yosemite National Park, Shenandoah National Park, the Appalachian Trail, The Long Trail, the Isle of Skye and Scottish Highlands (Scotland), the Lycian Way (Turkey), the Swiss Alps (Interlaken), and much of the Bruce Trail. If there's snow on the ground I'm tramping through it in snowshoes or gliding elegantly along on XC skis. I'm certified in Wilderness First Aid which I think is pretty exciting. Cutting down trees with my mind to fashion a splint for you. Also Standard First Aid and CPR (A) and CPR (C). I'm a Hike Ontario Certified hike leader too. I love birds. I lurk in bushes trying to identify them with miniature binoculars. Most often unsuccessfully, especially Warblers. My spirit animal is an aloof, yet loveable Woolly Mammoth. Like Manny from Ice Age. I live in Toronto with my amazing Sarah and our full forest of Parks Ontario stuffed animals.
