About Dan

How's it going.  
 
In short, I am a 20 year old adventure photographer from Scotland, who has started talking to his camera a lot. 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the main questions I'm asked is how I got started with all of this photography stuff. To be honest, as I sit here trying to type this, I'm still not exactly sure how this all started. When I was younger, I had no time for all this nature stuff and I used to shrink at the thought of hiking. Nevertheless, my parents managed to drag me up a fair few hills growing up.

Starting university in Glasgow was a big turning point for me. The Scottish Highlands provided a great escape from the constant noise of the city. There is something exciting about being in a place that not many people go. (As long as you haven't ran out of food) 

As my following started to grow on Instagram and Facebook, I decided to reach out to brands. This involved sending a lot of emails to any brand that was interested. To see some of my collaborations with brands, click the link here.

Here is a question and answer video which explains a bit more about what kit I bring when Wild Camping:

If you have any questions about absolutely anything, fire me a message on Instagram or Facebook. If you're not into all that social media stuff, my email is danielrpbell@outlook.com 

I'm thinking about making another one of these Q and A videos, so the more whacky the question, the better. :)
