If your organisation is staffed by all volunteers, please ask me for further info. There is a good chance I will be cool with it. If you or other people are getting paid, its fair that I should get paid too. If your budget is limited, just ask.

Can I blog one of your images?

"If you try to find out some Taipei 101 photos in Flickr, you should already know about Daniel - one of the most famous photographers that has many many good photos of Taipei 101. And if you know that how many raining days in Taipei a year, you should understand how difficult for Daniel to take these photos with beautiful sky."

"Dans 每張照片除了本質都很優秀之外，難得的是都有其一段故事。 在喀擦一聲時，彷佛把立體的情境都攝了進去。"

"Hey Daniel, old pal...
We have been enjoying your photos tremendously. For the greater part of the twenty years I've known you, I had no idea that you had such artistic talents in you!
Great images, fantastic compo, and vivid colors.
Without you I would not have spent the time putting my shots on Flickr. You are a true inspiration. Give us more!
