About Dan

Hi, my name is Dan and I take pictures. I am a photographer located in Belleville, Ontario and I provide services to the Quinte, Kingston, Cobourgh, Peterborough and surrounding areas.

I bought my first DSLR so I could take pictures of my newborn son. Learning to use that camera opened up a whole world of creative possibilities and I was hooked.

Now I always carry a camera with me and I'm always on the lookout for interesting landscapes, architecture, plants... well you get the point, I like to take pictures. Now that I look back, I was passionate about photography long before I got that DSLR.

As of late, you'll also find me at music shows standing next to a speaker or crawling around trying to get just the right angle of the bass player. Music has always been a major part of my life. I've been playing drums for over 20 years, and have dabbled in other instruments with various levels of success. Music photography is just a natural fit for me. If you'd like me to come photograph your show, drop me a line.
