Hello! Welcome to dHb Photography, my name is Daniel Berman. In 2007 I began to document my life. I found that having a camera on me at all times forced me to slow down, open my eyes, and see things I otherwise would have missed. It helped me engage and appreciate the everyday ephemeral moments. Using a camera and taking photographs came naturally and quickly evolved into a very personal and emotional pursuit.
In 2008 I started dHb Photography, an online space to share my work. Shortly after, I was selected by the Smithsonian Institute from more than 17,000 entries from around the world as a finalist for their annual photography contest. My photograph, “Broken Barn“, was displayed in the Smithsonian Castle for over a year and was seen by more than a million visitors. I also received an honorable mention in a competition put on by the National Park Service; my photograph, “Red Rock Canyon“, was selected from over 10,000 other entries and placed in the top 14. I have a dHb Photography booth (#101) at the Oregon Country Fair each year as well as a presence in several boutique shops in Portland. For more information visit my Facebook fan page.
My most recent endeavor is Northwest Pet Photography. My goal is to capture the essence and personality of your pet and turn it into a work of art. For more information please visit my website www.nwpetphotography.com or Facebook fan page.
If you are interested in using my work for non-commercial purposes please drop me a line, I’d love to help you out!
