Daniel Linnet began painting people and landscapes as a hobby but on picking up a camera for reference shots he fell in love with the immediacy of the medium.
"I still use my painting skills in post production while grading my images. I enjoy the whole creative process, from inception of the concept, to the actual image capture, right through to the final treatment in post production.”
An accomplished portrait photographer Linnet's people shots reveal a raw intimacy that has become his signature. In addition, his technical ability has seen him rise to become one of Australia’s top automotive photographers.
As a commercial photographer he has produced images for MasterCard, Pfizer, OPSM, Country Energy, BankWest, Ford Performance Vehicles, St George Bank and Top Gear Magazine among others. His work has also appeared in numerous local and international publications including Graphis Photo Annual, the ACMP Australian Photographers Collection and the International PDN 2008 Photo Annual and Luerzer's Archive.
Linnet served as NSW Chairman of the Society of Advertising, Commercial and Media Photographers for three years and is now an AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) Master of Photography.
