Hello! My name is Daniel Berman, welcome to Northwest Pet Photography. I’ve had animals around me my entire life and understand that pets are not only companions, but a unique, integral part of your family. I want to capture the essence and personality of your pet and turn it into a work of art that you’d be proud to hang on your wall.
My wife and I foster rescue dogs for Greenhill Humane Society. So, in addition to our two dogs and fat cat, we usually have a foster dog in the mix waiting for his/her forever home. This has been great opportunity to work with a variety of breeds with different temperaments and backgrounds. Needless to say it’s a full house, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Thanks for considering my services, I can’t wait to hear from you!
My Photography Background
In 2007 I began to document my life. I found that having a camera on me at all times forced me to slow down, open my eyes, and see things I otherwise would have missed. It helped me engage and appreciate the everyday ephemeral moments. Using a camera and taking photographs came naturally and quickly evolved into a very personal and emotional pursuit.
In 2008 I started dHb Photography, an online space to share my work. Shortly after, I was selected by the Smithsonian Institute from more than 17,000 entries from around the world as a finalist for their annual photography contest. My photograph, “Broken Barn“, was displayed in the Smithsonian Castle for over a year and was seen by more than a million visitors. I also received an honorable mention in a competition put on by the National Park Service; my photograph, “Red Rock Canyon“, was selected from 10,000 other entries and placed in the top 14. I have a dHb Photography booth at the Oregon Country Fair each year as well as a presence in several boutique shops in Portland.
