About me
Fashion & Documentary Photographer Based in London. Hey, I’m Daniel. With a focus on fashion & documentary photography, my work is often shaped by my own lived experience and explores ideas of identity, sexuality and culture. For me, photography is rooted in the dichotomy between naturalism and artificiality, and I love incorporating elements of both into my work. Hoping to connect & collaborate with other like-minded creatives! If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a message on instagram or by email; @danielhousley | info@danielhousley.com If you want to check out more of my photos, my website is www.danielhousley.com

Hailing from the Belgian city of Ghent, Geudens is familiar with urban living, but never on this scale and with such variety. This editorial captures his journey through a new city, from the brutalist Trellick Tower, a council block iconic for its representation of the working class in British media, to the gr

  • Forever Bound
    Forever BoundCurrently undergoing film festivals selections, in Forever Bound, we wanted to explore the theme of fate’s adversarial role in a relationship, how destiny, if you believe in such a thing, plays an important role in how our lives turn out. It’s an exciting challenge solving the puzzle of how we are able to communicate such a personal, and yet universally experienced, stage in life. Our aim is that through both action and costume we will be able to artistically portray the inception of a separatin
