finding a feeling

Hi, I'm Dan

I am a photographer & writer based in the UK.

For as long as I can remember making photographs & writing poetry has been how I best articulate thoughts, feelings and ideas of my own, in a unique and fulfilling way. It's the only way I know how to express and communicate my conscious experience.

Through my work I wish to preserve and give significance to the ordinary. To find a feeling, capture life in all it's countless complexities, and tell real stories. I'd like to give a voice to the obscure and document the passing of time in an honest, heartfelt and meaningful way. In essence, to speak the true insignificant beauty of LIFE.

I also manage the MakingPhotosMag social media platform for the photography community - sharing interviews, projects and inspiring works from photographers all over the world.

"to observe this life is a beautiful thing.. to pick out a moment passing us by and make something meaningful, something true - a photograph we can feel on into the future.. that is quite a special thing"
