Dan Escobar is a versatile photographer who is inspired by the execution of strong concepts. Whether it’s the pure interaction of composition and light, the staging of stylized portraits, or the creation of complex environments or effects, Dan has been responsible for some of the most celebrated, image-driven ads of the last 25 years. Dan spends his spare time in San Francisco trying to figure out his kids and waiting for the Giants to win a World Series.

“Dan is a pleasure to work with. He is a true craftsman with an artful eye and an amazing ability to pull things off. His classic style combined with his digital savvy makes him a true standout from other photographers. If you were to crossbreed McGyver for his craftiness with Abe Lincoln for his trustworthiness with Shirley Temple for her singing and dancing ability, you’d end up with Dan Escobar.”
