Hello there!

This is how you’ll often find me, giving in to my weakness – coffee.

Usually coffee goes with cake and sweets. For me, it goes hand-in-hand with your photos - taking, editing and crafting them. I have also worked in advertising and design for over 18 years and great communication matters to me. My perspective, skills and senses thrived.

Show me what matters most - you, your life, your possessions. My style is candid, real, journalistic - enjoy your day and trust me to capture all the tears, tension, pride, happiness and laughs. After, we can relive your story together. Whether the events are great or small, they'll live forever. 

Sometimes drastic circumstances call for drastic measures - almost overnight, I dropped everything and moved from Australia to live in Japan to be with the love of my life, incredible wife and partner-in-crime, Kana. Travelling is natural to me and distance is no boundary - I can work anywhere.


What people say about me…

Emma & Mike

"Dan, we're camping in Kuitpo forest at the moment (which is just what I need like always!)… and despite the disconnect, we can't turn away from your photos. We're really super happy, we'll catch up sometime very soon."

Josh & Ali

"The most important thing to us was to be able to reflect in years to come on the excitement, love, fun and whirlwind of a day that it was. Thank you Dan. Xx"

Hamish & Tippi

"I wish we'd had you for the whole day, these photos are amazing, Tippi and her Mum love them too - they cried happy tears. The memories come flooding back straight away…"

Ellise & Brad

"In our main dining room hangs a great wedding memory board we made, and everyone loves your photos! They're everything we hoped for and much more."
