The Pacific Northwest is home to some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery, as well as a number of talented photographers capturing it for the world to see. We spoke with one of our favorites recently, Daniel Michael Robbins, featured on this week’s ‘Faces of the Northwest.’
Can you tell us a little about what you do?
My name is Daniel Michael Robbins, and I provide Creative Media Services to individuals and companies who are looking to promote their products, services or just need some help with family portraits. I like to help my clients actualize the idea they have in their head into something beautiful to see.
How did you get started?
I started doing photography first at about 15 or 16 years old using a point and shoot canon power-shot camera. A few years later a neighbor of mine showed me the magic of basic Photoshop. From there my interest grew enough to want to turn my passion into a profession.
Do you have any insider tips for other photographers, or would-be photographers?
Having an expensive camera doesn’t always mean you take quality photos. After working my way up from a basic point and shoot camera to a professional full frame camera, to this day some of the coolest photos I’ve captured were on lesser equipment.
Is there something about you that not everyone knows?
I’m a single father of two beautiful humans.
When you have a day off, what are some of your favorite things to do in the Northwest?
On my days off I really enjoy being outside either with the kids or friends, hanging out on the river, cruising through the forest listening to music.
If you had to describe what you love about the Northwest in 3 words, what would you choose?
Sunsets, Waterfalls, Trees
Is there anything else you’d like people to know
