Everyday People - Extraordinary Stories

Hi, my name is Dan A'Vard and I'm a portrait photographer, living in and around Melbourne. For as long as I can remember I have loved photography, taking photos, looking at photos or talking about photos. I have also been fascinated by people and their stories. Working as a portrait photographer means I can combine these two passions in to one amazing job! 

I believe in adventure, big dreams and a passionate life. I live this life as my everyday - and bring it to each of my shoots. Every shoot is an adventure that we go on together, digging deep to find those photographic gems that tell your story. 

When I work with you, I get to know who you are and what your story is. When I shoot with you, I connect with where you're at, and what you need to get let your story shine through. I take time, and support you on this journey. I have heard that my shoots can be a bit like a workshop, finding tidbits and exploring them to show the best version of you. 

Everything that I do is about telling stories, giving the audience an opportunity to connect on a visual level. I'd love to meet you and hear your story. Get in touch and let's make something beautiful.

Just recently, I was featured by Snappr as one of Melbourne's top photographers!
