About Dominion Photography




Hello!  I'm Dan, I'm a husband, father and a photographer based in the High Peak borough of Derbyshire, UK.

I've been interested in the arts / photography from around the age of 14, later attending photography courses at the then Erith Technical College, Kent and saving-up for my first film camera made by Zenit!

 

From 1990, my career path led to over two decades operating in the entertainment industry (fifteen years professionally) occasionally taking event and Wedding photos.

 

After twenty five years involved in entertainment, I decided to take a completely new work direction; inspired by Writer / Producer Vaun Wilmott through his extraordinary series "Dominion" and its impressive storytelling and high quality visual FX.

By contributing fan-art via social media and engaging with fans, I realised I wanted to be creative again.  This eventually led to picking up the camera (again).

 

Years later, thanks to Vaun Wilmott's "Dominion" I have more determination, purpose, ambition, passion and diligence - all factors influencing towards operating as a full-time photographer, my only job and I love it!

 

2020 - Due to the Covid pandemic and Government "lockdown" rules, it has certainly been difficult to operate as a photographer and not fall foul of the law!  However I'm looking forward to the opportunity to get back out there when the laws permit.

I am pleased that my stepdaughter has an interest in photography and will also be contributing to Dominion-Photography in 2021.

 

From documenting life's beauty, the simple and ordinary moments to visually connecting events, my photography disciplines overlap and include black & white, landscape, long-exposure and creative photography.
