I was born and raised in a smallish Southern Ontario city until I moved out to Toronto when I was 15. I started working when I was 11 years old, and I've never stopped.
My photography started with an entry-level DSLR with a CCD sensor in 2010. I began by photographing a wealth of concerts, performances and events. I've been a News photographer since 2012. I've been creating portraits since I owned that first camera, which is where the 'portraiture' aesthetic in my work come from.
I'm Daniel A Betts, a select-assignment People & Lifestyle photographer with the consistent and reliable ability to create images in settings from pristine and controlled, settings with movement at mid-day, and settings that are pitch-black while surrounded by a moving crowd - all while maintaining a high Image Integrity.
