About Daniel Schubert
The photographer captures a moment, an individual perspective, an appreciation.
In our crowded, often overwhelmed world, what could be nicer than a craft that creates nothing new and instead simply values what is already there.
The photographer doesn't create anything new.
The photographer appreciates
what already is.
My first contact with photography was when I was a little boy and got a camera for my birthday
My first pics were pretty much anything that got in front of my camera, but mostly friends, family or pets. I quickly established myself in my circle of friends as the one who always had a camera with me and captured memories and videos (at that time we didn't have smartphones).
Even today I still take photos of celebrations and special moments in the lives of my loved ones. After all, I know how precious and bittersweet melancholic these memories can be.
Let's go independent
In 2019, I decided to turn my passion into a profession,
loaded with professional experience in a wide variety of industries, from retirement homes, retail, local journalism to gastronomy and a completed bachelor's degree, I decided to work on my own business.
After two years of self-study, a lot of motivation and entrepreneurial will, I finally threw myself completely into self-employment.
There are decisions in life that you always know you will stand by, and this was one of them.
A step that I would not have dared to take without so many great people who gave me support and trust day after day.
Love for portrait
Capturing friends, family and loved ones has always been a big thing for me.
There is something very special about a good portrait, capturing them as they are, real and honest – rather than following a fixed program is an approach I have discovered for myself.
Photography is changing
Taking great photos is getting easier and more accessible and that’s a good thing
Modern technology, the free availability of expert knowledge on the Internet and, above all, the increasing importance of images as self-portrayal in social media has changed the former apprenticeship to a mere title.
Instagram users are now also busy with lighting, technology and processing in photography: Having an eye for a good picture is more important than ever, because the rest … everyone can now learn the rest themselves, and that’s a good thing.
Why should the fun be withheld only from a professional photographer?
For the modern photographer, however, this means that one has to be inventive and be able to do a lot more than “just” take good pictures.
Even if photography is becoming more and more accessible, some aspects tell apart experienced photographers from amateurs: mastering the use of lenses for every situation, professional image processing or the triad of depth, light and composition.
To know how to implement an idea photographically while delivering a constant high quality and a never ending search for sharpening one's skills makes a professional photographer stand out.
