Daniel Wakefield, Owner / Photographer of Top-Tier Headshots started life in Canada but moved around several areas in the U.S. growing up. Daniel and his wife Bethany moved to south Florida in 2015 and it was there that his passion for wildlife photography was born. Daniel’s wildlife work has been published in several books, magazines and awarded in several prestigious wildlife photography competitions including Top 100 in Audubon Bird Photography, 2018 and Top 15 in Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year, 2020.
Daniel is renowned for his skill in photographing people and capturing genuine expression. Early in his photographic journey, Daniel recognized that people often have very forced expressions when you tell them to “smile.” However, when the photographer can get people to relax in front of the camera, not only do they enjoy the experience more, they also come away with images that showcase genuine expression.
This interest in capturing genuine expression was heightened when Daniel began training with Peter Hurley and HeadshotCrew. Peter is widely considered to be the best headshot photographer in the world and learning from him took Daniel’s headshot photography to the next level. Daniel is an Associate Photographer of Peter Hurley and a two-time Headshot of the Week winner. In July 2022, Daniel Wakefield opened his brand-new commercial studio in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Daniel lives in Deerfield Beach, Florida with Bethany and their four beautiful children.
