About

Daniel Nielsen: About the photographer

Daniel Nielsen is a self-taught portrait- and concert photographer based out of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Daniel Nielsen had his humble beginnings taking photos at concerts, which was the perfect introduction to the facets of photography, mastering a DSLR as well as various techniques, and over time turned him on to how the viewfinder could shape the world and document a telling moment with the right composition.

Today Daniel Nielsen still shoots concerts but certainly also photographs other subject matters like people, landscapes and various types of events.

The drive behind Daniel Nielsens love of photography comes from the fascination of people and the world around him as well as a constant urge to depict esthetic.

Regardless of subject matter Daniel Nielsen has always had a documentary photographic style and, by extension, prefers photographing people in their natural environment over a studio setting because of how a location subtly can wrap a subject in a context and help convey their story.

“One doesn’t stop seeing. One doesn’t stop framing. It doesn’t turn off and turn on. It’s on all the time.”
– Annie Leibovitz
