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.
Photographs have the ability to capture the essence of an individual, a group of people or a special moment in time – this is why 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 about me:
I am a full time photographer – this IS my career. I shoot in my studio and throughout the Truckee/Lake Tahoe/Reno area. I am experienced and educated in my craft. I have earned the certification and distinction of being a “Certified Professional Photographer” (translation: 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. 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.
We’ll start with a conversation to get to know you and to discover what is important to you. Your photo session experience is your chance to have fun, laugh, relax, and be yourself. After the shoot, we will design and present what we have crafted for you. Planning the best presentation for your home spaces is a blast.
What is your vision for a photo session? I would love to speak with you to see what we can create together.
