My name is Dani Diamond and I'm based in NYC.
Photography is a passion. I do it because I love it; getting paid for
it is simply a bonus. I'm often asked what kind of photography I
dedicate myself to. But I find it difficult to confine myself to a
label such as a fashion photographer, product photographer, etc. My
philosophy is that an artist is always growing and there is no reason
to put a limits on the artist's skills. With that in mind, if someone
presents an idea, even if it is out of my "comfort zone," I consider
it. Regardless, I do have my personal favorites. I love shooting
naturally lit portrait, fashion and commercial work.
Within everyone there is artistic skills that can be tapped into, but
only those who are passionate and ambitious ever tap into that and
become artists.

I wasn't born talented, I was born ambitious.

Hi Dani
I Love your work
I have became your 2000 follower in FS. magic

Hey Dani! Absolutely love your work. You're truly an inspirational and I'll definitely be following you! Question - I saw a Surface Pro article from you in my RSS feed, but it wont load. It says access denied. Can you republish it? Huge fan of the Surface line (I can't go back to Apple after using it), and would love to read your review and how you use it. :-)
