The surf project is documentary photography at its finest and was started when Daniel’s passion for surfing and photography collided in the early 2000’s when he first began shooting shore break with a Nikonos underwater film camera. Those first shots fueled what has become a life-long passion and career spanning thousands of images, several continents, and endless hours in the water.
Daniel’s work has been published in major surf industry magazines Surfer, Surfing, ESM, and Transworld. It has been highlighted in the book Swell: A Year of Waves by Evan Slater and Peter Taras. His iconic imagery of Hatteras Island is frequently run in online surf publications, news outlets, and blogs, including Surfline.
