Hi, I’m Danielle Werner!
I am a commercial and travel photographer currently living, shooting, and playing in Orlando, Florida. With a mild obsession with adventure, I’ve explored all aspects of this wonderful art for 15+ years photographing people and places all around the planet.
Now, I am excited to help you discover your inner storyteller. Now we all have access to an incredible tool that can help us share our stories, a smartphone. I want to show everyone that it doesn’t matter what kind of camera you have. What matters is how you see your world, how you share your story. This class will show you how to see light, composition, movement, and color like never before. It will inspire you to see life through a new lens.
