Daniel Welch is a commercial photographer (still & motion) based in New York City who specializes in portraits and artist/small business branding.  


Daniel's work involves capturing timeless images of performers of all types - actors, musicians, opera singers, instrumentalists, and composers.  Drawing from his background as an actor, opera singer, and session musician, he has unique insight into the needs of his clients. His images can be found on promotional posters, album covers, magazine pages, billboards, websites, and 8x10 headshots being handed out daily for auditions and castings the world over.


Daniel has sat on the board of directors for multiple arts organizations, and sees the need for giving back as a professional artist.  For young artists, it is important to see they can make a career out of doing what they adore, though it is not easy.  The cultivation of the arts is key to a well rounded society as well as individual.


While based in NYC, Daniel readily travels for clients, whether it be coast to coast or Europe to Southeast Asia.
