In 2017, he started The Sentient Project, a 501c3, and has helped animal sanctuaries around the world gain exposure and fundraise by using his passion for photography. Last year the project has expanded to help several humanitarian initiatives in Colombia and Uganda, and through photography initiatives we hope we can continue spreading some love and awareness.

    Our pictures came out great. Dan is a consummate professional and very down to earth at the same time. If you need pictures taken for any reason you’ll be very happy working with Dan. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is and I bet you’ll feel exactly the same way.

    Daniel was so great to work with! I had to get headshots for my talent agency, and he went above and beyond in taking the pictures. He was flexible and understanding, and helped me really get into character so my shots felt authentic. I will definitely be going back in the future.

    I've never had professional photos taken, so I had no idea what to expect and was nervous. In addition, I feel I am not a very photogenic person so photos and photo shots can be frustrating. However, I had a great experience with Daniel! He was patient, super accommodating, asked and listened to my input, and was not rushed. The pictures turned out great! Definitely going to seek his services again in the future!

    Daniel is amazing! The pictures turned out beautiful. I 100% suggest him as your photographer.

    I am not photogenic and sometimes get really uncomfortable in front of the camera. Since I sent him a Pinterest boards, it was smooth working from those.

    Further, Daniel has patience!! I showed up late, and he was totally cool about it. I also was not a good mood and he totally empowered me through this process; felt so much better at the end of the session.

    He is a cool, professional man.

    An absolute pleasure to work with. Tailored his work to our style and requests without losing his creativity and great taste. His easy-going personality also made the experience both easy and fun. Our engagement photos turned out perfect, and we’re very fortunate and excited to have him as our wedding photographer.
