I am a professional commercial photographer specializing in fashion and portrait photography of adults and children for magazines, catalogs and advertising. 20+ years experience in the New York City area and published in hundreds of books and magazines nationally and internationally.
My skills and experience extend to glamour, lifestyle, stock, travel and healthcare. I have had the privilege of building a career out of my lifelong passion.
I have photographed for a variety of clients including Toys R Us, Levi's For Kids, Promgirl.com, Bridal Guide, DKNYKids, and many others. My recent work includes numerous projects photographing casual fashion for Simplicity Pattern Company and series of books for publisher Laurence King Publishing of portraits of collectors and their interesting collections.
I enjoy working with a variety of individuals and companies, but I only respond to requests with detailed information about the photography project a client is seeking. Without those details I don't have any way of knowing if I can provide a useful service to potential clients. In general, projects I work on will be estimated at the Premium Service level based on my past experience and the resources I can bring to a project. My headshot and modeling sessions start at $300 for up to 4 outfits. My quotes for any photography service will not be below this level. Please consider this before requesting contact. Message me for more details.
Recently relocated to Catskills area which affords me a unique and lush backdrop for fashion and portrait projects. I also maintain a professional photostudio in NNJ/NYC area.
My work can be seen on my portfolio website:

Dan is the utmost respectful and professional photographer I have ever worked with. He was such a phenomenal person to learn from and want to be the best you can be when he’s taking your shots. He also shot for my two sons and they came out looking like GQ models! I am constantly told my photos are fantastic and who does them and it’s always Dan’s photos. Thank you Dan Howell and keep up the awesome work you do. I can’t wait for us to create again! More...
Dan is a wonderful photographer whom always manages to capture the essence of his subject’s personality. I have been going to him for many years; First as an actor myself “back in the day,” and lately my two child actresses are frequently photographed by Dan. He makes the shoots fun and gives great direction. We always look to Dan when we want portraits as well! More...
I love working with Dan. He’s an amazing photographer. He always knows the perfect lighting for the scene and the perfect time to take a photo. He’s very easy to work with. The idea of being in front of a camera can be very nerve-wracking, but Dan knew how to make the entire situation feel very normal, comfortable, and fun. I will definitely work with him again! More...
