Danny Perez is a musician, filmographer and career photographer who is passionate about capturing the vibrant colors of life. Born in El Tigre, Venezuela in the 1970's, his father was a chemical engineer by day and an abstract painter in his free time; his mother, an accountant who also had a flair for illustrations.

After the break up of Supper en Orange, his well-known South Florida band, Perez attended film school at Full Sail University. “My inspirations as a filmmaker were Kubrick, Paul Thomas Anderson, Danny Boyle, and Quentin Tarantino.”

Perez worked for Quentin Tarantino’s production company for 6 years, then went on to work for the Dylan family for 3 years, where he gained priceless experience as a photographer.

His first camera was a Nikon f4 with a 50mm lens and a few years later, Perez bought his first and only macro lens. “I discovered this amazing dimension in nature that so few have ever captured and is rarely explored.” Macro lenses allow him to get close to the action and “allowed me to discover a complex world of fascinating creatures and the incredible colors of their natural habitat.” It would only be a matter of time before Perez encountered the hummingbird and it was love at first sight. “Hummingbirds are magical – with their incredible speed, size, colors and aerodynamically impossible behavior, which is unlike any other creature in the world.”

Someday Perez aspires to live closer to nature, but “for the moment, I am only taking souvenirs of the wonderful world we inhabit and loving every minute of it.”

    "This is one awesome photographer. If you haven't taking the time to view his photostream, you should. I promise you won't be dissapointed. He has only been a contact of mine for a month or so now, but everything he posts has been amazing. I'm always excited about the next one, before he even posts it. I've never written a testimonial before, i hope I've done it right, but if i haven't, doesn't matter. It's honest and straight from the heart. His work is Magnificent."
