Who is Dan Amezcua?
As the son of a prominent TV personality, I grew up in the arts/entertainment/media industry. At the age of 21, I started out as a video editor for a small studio in Los Angeles. I learned a lot about getting the right shot from not always receiving the best work from our cameramen. After about a year of working as an editor I was sent out on location to shoot with crews. I learned to enjoy trying out new things and discovered how much I loved photography and design. My love for this work ended up growing into other design fields as well over time.
My photographic style is composed of images that captivate from a sense of emotion and style. My work is the culmination of sharp attention to detail, precise lighting, and a strong yet refreshing visual sense.
Nikon D800, Nikon 105mm 2.8 Macro, Nikon 12-24mm, Nikon 50mm 1.4, Mac, Adobe Suite
If the shot evokes the right emotion then you have the right shot.
All business aside, a few things you may not know about me. I love to snowboard, surf, skateboard…board things. I was in a band called Chase that had a large following and was a fun band to be in. I have played guitar since I was 7 and still enjoy rippin it up on anything worth listening to. I enjoy being around beaches and mountains. I love being around areas that are scenic. I love the outdoors. Some other interesting things about me: I speak 5 languages. I have lived all over the world and all over the US. My favorite place on earth is Kauai (Princeville)
