Does this sound like you…

Hello there, I'm Daniel Venter!

I’m an Award-Winning Portrait Photographer and the Founder of Shoot, Create, Captivate! I started in 2013 when I took newborn photos of my daughter Amy — she now features in many of my photos. 

It’s been a journey with a lot of hours spent practicing, pushing the limits, self-criticism, sacrificing social life and family time in pursuit of my dream of becoming a full-time photographer.

The journey continues and I’m hoping you are coming along for the ride to discover the creativity within you.

What the members are saying

I can not believe how much I learned from this tutorial. I thought I was pretty proficient in Photoshop but I learned so much. Your tip for my Sony files was worth the cost alone. You are an amazing instructor and it was so easy to follow.
Debbie Vosejpka
I love, love, love this tutorial! The attention to skin tones and enhancement of the eyes is excellent. Great job Daniel! I am so happy I got the annual membership. I have learned so much in such a short period of time.
Diane Welter
This tutorial is outstanding. The instruction is clear, concise, and very much to the point. Daniel walks you through some fantastic editing techniques that really helps add that magical a touch to an image. I’ve been scouring the internet for months to find tutorials that don’t lose the viewer by 20 minutes in. His instruction left me wanting more. I highly recommend subscribing to take your skills to the next level!
Cara Malfi
I cannot speak highly enough of Daniel's videos. I do consider myself an experienced photographer, but Daniel's videos are teaching me things I did not know or consider as another option. He is very helpful if you have any questions. His video's are easy to follow and not only show you how to shoot and edit, but also the why's. If you are on the fence about subscribing to the yearly pass, jump off the fence and click the purchase button.
WOW. I feel like my previous understanding of light in photography (chasing golden hour, for example) all just went out the window, replaced by Daniel's focus on finding the "open shade" and watching the base of tree trunks to pinpoint exactly where the sunlight is coming from. Excited to dig into your other workshops!
Jong Lee

Melissa Davis
