A recipient of the 2015 Emerging Cinematographer Award, Daniel has seen a lot of action in narrative features as a camera operator and lighting technician (Star Trek Into DarknessDjango Unchained and Mad Men). His recent work includes the breakout Danish drama Mens Vi Lever, nominated for five Danish academy awards in 2018 including Best Picture. Daniel has been featured in Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and ICG Magazine for his work on the narrative short The Other Side and the feature documentary Seed.
