“Gregory and Lesa are a great team.  Not only do they have a keen eye for balance, mood, lighting, and composition, but are fun to work with.  Our kids did not feel the time pass during the portrait session.  The results are nothing short of fantastic.  Thanks for these great memories that will be cherished forever.”

Our family had a fantastic experience working with Gregory and Lesa Daniel. Starting with our initial design consultaiton about what we envisioned, throughout the entire camera study and during our exciting selection process Gregory and Lesa both made us feel extraordinary. The whole family had fun with our session on the beach. Greg and Lesa were very patient with our boys wanting to play football during the session! Their exquisite taste and artful eyes made selecting the handcrafted frames a delight. They truly define client satisfaction. We are elated with the beautiful mixed media portrait they uniquely designed created for our family and beautiful home. We will cherish our handcrafted portrait for years and look forward to working with Gregory and Lesa again in the future.

I have been asked if we would put on our blog, some of the portraits from our model searches, and of course the answer is YES!  If you hop over to our website, you will see them in the Fine Art B&W style.  Yet, in an effort to make it more special, we are highlighting them right here on our blog!  We love all our models and from time to time we will showcase them right here!!!
Enjoy these beautiful people and beautiful faces:

As seen on Facebook and Instagram, Greg was involved in a book signing last week.  Early in his career, 1990, he was invited to be a part of Cameracraftsmen of America, an invitation only organization of 40 of the country’s best photographers.   Every five years, Cameracraftsmen produces a book with the work of all the members who wish to participate, and is of the utmost quality!!!  The books, Greg is signing, belong to Sarah Smith of Minnesota and are from 2005 and 2010.  Next year at this time, the 2015 books will be released and available for signing.  If you are interested, we have a few of the 2005 and 2010 copies left.  Let us know if you would like one for your library.
We are very proud of Greg, not only because he has been published many times over, but because he takes great pride in hand crafting uniquely designed portraits for our clients, and because he will always have the desire to be better today than he was yesterday!

"A sister is both your mirror and your opposite." - Elizabeth Fishel

Our dear friend Rita Moreno and her sweet sister had the wonderful idea of celebrating sisterhood with a lifelong charm for each of their homes. I would say this is the perfect grown up version of the good old best friends necklace! No matter the miles between these two ladies, their bond will never be broken. It was so much fun to watch as the two of them interacted with each other! We may be a little biased towards sisters since our two girls and their sisterly bond are such a joy to watch, but there is something about a sibling bond that is too special not to capture. We had the opportunity to see the portrait finished and adorning Rita's wall in her home, which is one of our very favorite things to do. A portrait holding its place in a home is such a powerful statement!

A dear client of ours, Kaye Costello, is such a special lady. Not only has she endured MS for a number of years, but she has also recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. As so many survivors have said after they experience a life threatening illness, the appreciation for family, friends and loved ones far exceeds the imagination. Kaye is no exception. Recently during a visit with her brother and sister-in-law, we had the opportunity to head out to the beach and capture Kaye and everything she represents. A beautiful mixed media painting of Kaye is now a piece of art added to her home along with a portrait album of the people who make her heart swell with love. There is not a thing in this world that could make her feel more special and cared for every single day than these.

Now here are some lovely little faces!!! The faces of the children of Chris and Amy Lush have graced their home in such a beautiful way. Amy brought in her sweet children about a year ago when we were updating the website and asking for models. We are so glad she did, and I am sure the feeling is mutual! The Fine Art black and white line lends an air of beauty and warmth to almost any home! After all, who wouldn't want the sweet faces of the ones they love the most adorning their family walls? The lucky grandmother of these children, Carolyn Tooley placed a smaller display in a completely different fashion in her home. Both displays, no matter the differences, are extremely meaningful and incredibly beautiful. Thank you so much for allowing us to create these for your families!

Titusville, FL (PRWEB) April 29, 2013

Gregory Daniel, M.Photog.Cr., F-ASP, has been elected to the Board of Directors for Professional Photographers of America.

Made up of working professional photographers, the PPA board helps guide the largest non-profit professional photography association. Daniel is proud to serve PPA in such a leadership capacity.

“I truly love this profession and all that it has provided my family, clients and myself from a creative and financial perspective,” said Daniel. “The skills I have obtained through entrepreneurship, photographic association leadership positions and upper management for the Space Program provide me with some unique resources to contribute.”

A PPA member for 30 years, Daniel founded Gregory Daniel Portrait Artist in 1979. With the help of his wife, Lesa, Daniel continues to operate two portrait photography galleries, one in Indiatlantic and another in their hometown of Titusville, Fla. Daniel also owns Daniel Properties, a commercial and residential property management company, and held multiple management positions with the Space Shuttle Program from 1979 to 2006.

Daniel is a highly decorated photographer. With PPA, he has achieved the title of Photographic Craftsmen in 1988, Master of Photography in 1989, and received the Imaging Excellence Award in 2005. He has been a PPA-affiliated instructor for many years and has earned numerous awards from PPA affiliates as well. In addition, Daniel has held committee chair positions for Cameracraftsmen of America and is a founding member of the International Society of Portrait Artists (ISPA).

Daniel’s passion is creating a fun environment of friendship that is revealed in his portraits by expression and beauty. By adding an element of fun to his art, he produces work that is pleasing both to clients and art critics alike. With his new role on the board, Daniel hopes his unique blend perspective, skills and best practices will help wherever needed. He hopes to leverage his years of experience and connections within the photographic industry to serve and further PPA’s mission, delivering trusted resources and supporting its members in growing more profitable businesses.
