Daniel Courtney absolutely loves being outdoors amongst nature, capturing all its beauty (in any weather) through Fine Art Photography.
His work showcases some of Australia’s most beautiful and spectacular places, in all their glory. Some images are easily recognisable, whilst others focus the viewers eye on a particular pattern or interesting part of a scene that may not be appreciated amongst a larger landscape. The focus is on beautiful illustrative Landscapes from around Australia and all over the World. He focuses on providing beautiful images of real places that just look incredible on your wall.
Daniel is a self-taught photographer, who started in the digital age with a Canon 40D in 2007. His starting attempts at photography showed that he had a keen eye for composition, and a passion for the art of photography. Daniel started exploring many different aspects of photography, stretching from fashion and boudoir, right through to motorsports.
When Daniel moved to Darwin with his now wife as a result of his work in the Royal Australian Air Force, he had an apartment facing Darwin Harbour. This scene presented on his balcony really inspired him to focus on Landscape imagery. With Darwin’s amazing variety of beautiful locations around the city, an apartment with great views and an adventurous spirit, Daniel has since taken countless photographs of both the Northern Territory, and other amazing locations around Australia and throughout the world.
Daniel now shoots with a Nikon D810, Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters and Tamron lenses.
