Daniel Peut

Daniel was born and raised in Goondiwindi, out amongst the cotton fields in south-western Queensland. He packed up and moved to the bright lights of Brisbane a few years ago, although he’s still a country boy at heart.

Photography is something Daniel has always enjoyed, right from a young age. He can still remember the day his Poppie gave him an old Pentax SLR and a roll of film. Try as he might, Daniel couldn’t quite understand aperture and shutter speed and ASA speed of film, but those humble beginnings planted a seed that he hasn’t forgotten.

Daniel is proud to never have enjoyed a song recorded after he was born (way back in ’86) and loves to rock out on an old-school Fender/Marshall guitar rig. He enjoys a range of other manly pursuits, and is known for his obsession with racing driver Dick Johnson and his danger-fraught motorcycle riding career.

When he’s not taking photos, he enjoys trying new boutique beers, driving his Falcon and exploring the nooks and crannies of Brisbane city.
