Danielle is an internationally acclaimed photographer, business woman and former World No. 2 Squash player currently based in Sydney. As the creative director of Harte International overseeing their flagship publication The Classic Lifestyle Magazine, she can be found travelling extensively to exotic locations working on array of leading creative & commercial projects with some of the world’s most notable companies, resorts, advertising and design agencies.
With a thirst for travel wanderlust, Danielle began her passion for photography whilst living with her family in the Middle East, Dubai. Who would of thought an unplanned walk throughout the back streets of Dubai’s Old Town Souk soaking up the rich tapestry of urban culture, historical architecture and exotic food, would intuitively ignite her true calling.
Through her lens she found a way to truly celebrate life and draw from a deep empathy and fascination for the human spirit. Photography is about honesty, beauty and joy whilst capturing images that make us all stop, question and contemplate the present. Danielle’s trademark vision, attention to detail and approach to lighting were rewarded on last year’s cover of the Classic Lifestyle Magazine, with a thought provoking image in Poland during winter, on the train tracks leading into the death camps of Birkenau, Auschwitz.
Danielle’s impressive sporting portfolio saw her graduate from the Australian Institute of Sport, under the guidance of squash legends Geoff Hunt and Heather Mckay. With an impetuous determination for health and wellbeing, Danielle galvanised her status early on in her career by becoming a Certified Personal Master Trainer, Gym Instructor, Nutritionalist and Weight Management Advisor, TRX trainer & Children’s Fitness Instructor. In 2010 – 2015 Danielle established the first Squash and Fitness Academy at the Emirates Golf and Country Club in Dubai which was primarily responsible for the development programs of both the Junior and Senior Players both nationally and internationally, along with the elite training of many International players during her stay in the UAE.
Danielle continues to push the boundaries in all facets of her life by simply staying grounded, staying humble and surrounding herself with like minded people who inspire & encourage her to be the best version of herself.
