I'm a Birmingham / North Wales based Portrait, Documentary and Street photographer, who works throughout the UK.

Emigrating to the world of photography from the acting industry, it's people, faces, and stories that continue to dominate my work. It's this human element, the photographing of people which really captivates me.

Documenting the ever changing streets, showcasing the transient moments at an event, capturing someone’s personality in a portrait / headshot, telling the story of a brand / product; it’s what I'm passionate about.

First impressions, and getting your message across, are increasingly important in our media driven society and I love to work in collaboration with people and brands, to create images and content tailored to your requirements.

“Danny is a real pleasure to work with. He is professional, collaborative and willing to try new things when we shoot together. I feel absolutely comfortable around him, which ends up creating great, natural photographs. His turnaround on the edited shots was fast and they came out perfectly. I loved working with him and I will be shooting with him again and again in the future.” - Holly Francis


“It was a great pleasure to shoot with Danny! Not only is he very friendly, positive, and makes you feel very comfortable (which is so important if you have never done a photoshoot before), but he also lets you be you! Absolutely love his natural style of photography, the way he edits each photo, and his ability to capture real moments!” - Julia Prokopyshyn


“Working with Danny on my headshots was such a relaxing and fun experience. He is fantastic at making you feel that you are in safe hands and that he will get the best possible shot for you. When coming to Danny I knew I wanted to get some different looks, ones to help create a better range of characters and performance styles. He kept this in mind throughout the session and I was extremely happy with the outcome! The quality of headshot he produced was incredible and I am over the moon with them.” - Lauren Milwain


“Working with Danny was genuinely a joy for us posers in Liquid Cheeks. Straight off the bat we established a good working relationship and we loved the fact that he wanted to avoid clichés. He was open to all our ideas and made them look really professional. This is a cat who knows what he’s doing with a camera. We’re a big fan of the more candid photos in his portfolio as well, we strongly recommend working with him.”
