Hello! I am Danielle Hankinson.

As a professional photographer, I have the pleasure of photographing incredible people and memorable events. I hope you are moved by the photographs on my site.

Capturing the essence of an individual, a group of people or a special moment in time – is one of the reasons photographs are so treasured. Sometimes, you only have “one shot” to get a perfect photo.

This is where I come in…

If you are seeking a professional high quality photographer, you may want to know the following:

I am a full time photographer – this IS my career. I shoot equally in my studio and throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin. I am both experienced and educated in my craft. I have earned the certification and distinction of being a “Certified Professional Photographer” (translated: I exceed the standards for my industry). I keep current by attending industry workshops, collaborating with creative peers (worldwide) and using progressive techniques and equipment.

I am originally from Australia. This is an incremental benefit for my clients. In the unlikely event we will need to wrestle crocs during a photo shoot – I have you covered.

I have an adventurous spirit, immense patience and lighthearted sense of humor. I climb cliffs, wade in rivers, shoot from boats, trek through snow and work with animals, props and people of all ages.
From a personal standpoint, I LOVE my job. I engage with interesting and inspiring human beings all day long. Every photo session is different and is all about YOU, the client.

What is your vision for a photo session? I would love to speak with you to see what we can create together.

Warm Regards,
