About Daniel the Ninja

I'm Daniel, the Photo Punk!
Welcome to my Patreon!  I'm a modeling and artistic photographer currently based out of Las Vegas, Nevada.  You may have seen my work in various alternative fashion and glamour publications over the past several years, and around social media via my InstagramTumblrFacebookModel Mayhem, and so on. 

My background
Art is in my blood and it is all I've ever wanted to do or be part of.  Since I was a child I've wanted to design something that was bold, vibrant and unforgettable, and photography has given me that outlet I've sought.  I was raised in a musical background and branched out into photography during college, seeking additional creative passion in my life. In 2007 I started Danger Ninja in my living room in Eugene in the hopes of getting into the modeling photography business, after seeing the revival of the pin-up genre and loving all of the vibrant colors involved in it.  I posted casting calls for models all over social media, and I haven't looked back since.  I've always been a one-person operation in every aspect of the business and my work is a synthesis of dozens of different styles, influences, backgrounds and locations.  I dabble everywhere I find inspiration, from glamour to high fashion, fine art, fetish, erotica and special FX. This near-decade of building a business on my own has been the wildest adventure I've ever taken, and I've loved every second.

So, why should you support me?
I want to take my photography career to the next level.  I want to create projects I've never had the funding for, travel around the USA and the world to meet and collaborate with new incredible artistic talents, and continue upgrading my equipment to keep up in a competitive industry. For just $1 a month, you can help me do this.  You'll see entire brand-new photo sets and series as I finish them, past archived work and sets that I have never posted in their entirety, and get a never-before seen look at my photography including behind the scenes shoot videos and blogs describing my lighting styles and editing techniques.

What will your financial pledge do?
By supporting me on Patreon, you're helping me in multiple invaluable facets.  Your pledge will help me repair my current photography gear and purchase new equipment both for my camera and for lighting.  It will enable me to travel all over the world seeking new photographic opportunity.  And it will fund new local projects and ideas with all of my favorite current collaborators.  Most of all, it will allow me to continue doing what I love full-time so that I can push myself every day to become a greater artist.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
I hope you decide to stay a while and enjoy all of my artwork, blogs, tutorials and behind the scenes content I'm sharing here!  Please feel free to write me as well and tell me what you'd like to see!  Suggestions and questions about my business and my work are always welcomed.  Your support, no matter how great or small means everything to me!

Basic Equipment Repairs!  
It's no secret that cost of photography equipment upkeep can be very expensive as with so many professional fields, yet it is a requirement to stay afloat in a competitive industry. My goal is to be able to repair my existing equipment and save up to purchase new travel gear, lenses and light modifiers for my projects and trips.  With $500 a month, I would be able to take care of a lot of long-overdue overhauling of my gear.
