Howdy, I'm Daniel.

I am a commercial food and product photographer with a decade of experience. Made in Texas, based in Berkeley, California.

I grew up in the sun-baked citrus orchards of the Rio Grande Valley where barbecue is currency and theres a taco truck in the parking lot of your doctor's office. Since relocating to California I have worked in the highly creative fine arts world as well as the highly precise design sphere and the blending of these two disciplines is what informs my approach to photography.

I have worked with clients including Pinterest Inc, Bombera, Copalli Rum, The Future Perfect, MARCH, Coup d'Etat, Holland & Sherry, and Rose Gold Society.

"Daniel was such a pleasure to work with. I was totally impressed with his preparedness, ingenuity and creativity on set and the gorgeous quality of the final edited shots. I'm looking forward to booking him again for our next project!"
