About The Photo Mag

Who are the people behind The Photo Mag?

The Photo Mag was created by a group of professional photographers who wanted to help aspiring photographers either pick up their first camera or take better photos.Between us, we have several decades of experience in several types of photography doing it all over the world. Each of us has a different specialty that we've spent many years honing, including street photography, documentary photography, landscape photography, and many more.

Why do we do this?

For us, part of the joy of photography comes from sharing the experience with others. The Photo Mag is our way of giving back to the photography community. Through our experience as professional photographers and photojournalists, we've learned a thing or two about what it takes to pull off successful projects and we’re excited to share the lessons we've learned with you.

The team at The Photo Mag

With decades of experience with a camera in hand, our writers comprise street photographers, documentary photographers, landscape photographers, and more.

Hey, I’m Daniel and I’m a solo-traveling photographer and ‘digital nomad’ from the U.K. but currently based in Asia. I like to photograph the ordinary yet poetic moments in our world that strike my curiosity. Though I’ve been playing with photo and video since I was around 6 or 7 years old, but it wasn’t until I turned 21 (in 2018) and started traveling that I really fell in love with candid photography.
