I’m Daniel; I was born and raised in Melbourne from a family of five with two brothers, one being my identical twin, Adam. Growing up with my twin as my best mate had pros&cons and the pros certainly outweighed the cons. Always having Adam around meant we never had to do anything alone - we always had this identity as the two of us, which was awesome, but also made creating my own identity later in life a little harder.
My love for photography and my journey started at a young age. At 15 I brought my first SLR camera. Back then I loved sitting with nature and witnessing its beautiful changes. The first sunrise photo I ever took is still one of my favourites (below). After completing my schooling I started and finished a Carpentry Apprenticeship, but not feeling fulfilled, I packed up and headed overseas to experience new cultures and new places. Although I’m settled back in Melbourne now and it has been 10 years since that first trip I still love what travel offers & represents - I’m inspired by humanity, uniqueness, individuality and the beauty I find in all people and the world around me. Being able to capture personality, heart & soul in a candid moment is exactly how others describe my journalistic style. I take on somewhat of a crusade when capturing a candid photograph.
White Vine Photography is me in a nutshell; Fun, Relaxed, Passionate, Honest, Loving & Natural.
Being brought up in a loving family has instilled what i see to be the most important life value 'LOVE' I believe this is one of the main reasons I've chosen to photograph love. Weddings are a celebration of Love, a connection so strong it’s shared with the closet of friends and family. It’s celebrating the togetherness of two individuals to create a whole.
