Daniel Padilla



I am formally trained to shoot photojournalism, but over the past few years, I’ve learned the art of commercial photography with my great mentor, Patrick Darby of Tonic Photo Studios in Tempe, Arizona. In my journey with Patrick I’ve gained valuable skills for food, product and lifestyle imagery.

Although I started as a photojournalist, I have developed a love for commercial photography. I find a very captivating quality of the precision necessary for executing a successful commercial image. In contrast the fluidity of photojournalism and my ability to flow accordingly, lend a strong hand for lifestyle photography. These two qualities merge to become the yin and yang of a refined multifaceted skill set.

Along with work I love to play music, travel, ski, wakeboard and climb. Lets connect and make something awesome!
