Daniel David Photographer
With a passion for visual arts since youth, Daniel has been behind the camera all of his life. His unique ability to capture under various lighting conditions, whether inside the studio or on location, has made his skills invaluable with the variety of ways he is able to capture, creating different moods to suit each project. He studied firstly at AAA School of Advertising where he learned skills in Art Direction, Copywriting, and Graphic Design. He moved to further his skill set by studying at Digital College of Photography where they taught him the technical skills required to operate all types of professional camera equipment. From there he moved on to study full-time Photography at Tshwane University of Technology where he started and trained in Black & White Film. He is a qualified Black and White film printer as well. They also taught him the basics of digital manipulation, different lighting setups, working within briefs and achieving results in multiple forms of photography. This has made him versatile in the subject matter he is able to capture. After his studies he assisted over 20 experienced photographers in different fields for 3 years, to learn in practical training as an assistant photographer in real life situations on set. He officially started working professionally for himself from 2010 onward under his name then coming together with talented artist Chris Hölty to collaborate and create Lionwolf.
