Hi, I'm Dan
A passion for storytelling and a love of photography is the perfect mix for capturing film stills. Working alongside the best cast & crews and aiming towards the same end goal is what makes it all so much fun, and capturing their incredible process along the way too.
Experience on Features, HETV, short films, pilots, music videos & commercials. I’ve been breaking my way in, proving my ground and would love to get on more & more exciting projects to show what I can do. See you on set!
Highlights from Dan
– Julie Hesmondhalgh saying “I’ve never looked so pretty!” after reviewing my stills
– Getting to travel and see the world through this industry. It’s taken me everywhere from the mountains of Andorra to the docks of Hull.
– The feeling that at any moment, the next shot you get could be “the one”.
– Seeing posters filled with my imagery plastered all over Manchester for upcoming film festivals

What Would Julie Do?
Our shoot went great, and upon receiving Dan’s superb and captivating shots shortly after I realised this was someone I would definitely be bringing back on future projects. Personable, focused, and stealthy (haha), Dan approaches his work with the utmost care, professionally capturing those perfect moments within the whirlwind of a shoot that can encapsulate your story within a single still. I can’t recommend him enough!
Unit Still Photographer – BFI Short Film, The Last Cowboy In Salford
Dan was an incredible asset for our production! He shot an extensive selection of fantastic stills. He was very diligent, going through what was expected of him at the start of the day and then, in the best way possible, he made himself invisible. Just to turn a selection of edited pictures the following morning that left us wanting more. The rest of the work followed not much long after, edited in both colour and b&w. He went far and beyond and we couldn’t be happier with the materials. Would 100% work with him again and recommend.
