Daniel Root

Daniel RootDaniel Root is freelance commercial and editorial photographer specializing in capturing compelling and authentic images that tell stories and evoke emotions. Hardly ever in a studio, he prefers working on location. With over twenty years of experience behind the camera, he still looks forward to each and every assignment, big or small. In the past, he has traveled for assignments to Europe, Asia, South Africa, Australia, South America and North America. One of his most memorable assignments was in 2005 when he volunteered his services to a NGO for a three-week documentary shoot in India and Thailand to capture the reconstruction efforts of communities impacted by the Asian tsunami of 2004.

More recently, he has concentrated his efforts closer to home working for commercial clients such as Nike, and for editorial clients like Portland Monthly.
 His goal is always to keep his shoots fun and relaxed to help keep the client, crew, and the talent at ease. No matter what the subject matter is, or whether he is working solo or with a crew, his aim is to deliver the best in both service and final product to all of his clients.

When he is not out capturing images, you can find him on one of Oregon’s many wild and scenic rivers fly fishing for steelhead or trout, or at home enjoying time with his wife Susan and taking lots of pictures of his daughter Leah.
