Tom Champion
Daniel Castle
When photographing people on the street, often for the Portland Grid Project, Daniel's intention is to create photos which illustrate how each of us as humans are unique while at the same time demonstrating how each of us also have a great deal in common. Regardless of the type of photography, or the subject matter, Daniel prefers to capture candid and genuine moments. He believes this approach delivers the most interesting, honest and rewarding photographs. When not photographing Daniel is often spending time with his dog Hank, is out exploring the great outdoors or is in search of the tastiest breakfast burrito in existence!
