Daniel Ray Photography | About
I grew up in far southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas where I spent a lot of time outdoors exploring the nearby forests, farm lands, grass prairies, swamps, and coastal waterways absorbing the sights, sounds and smells of rural Louisiana, Texas and the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Today, I live in the big city of Houston, Texas with my wife and three children. The strong connection to exploring nature from my youth never subsided. So, it is not surprising that I often find myself returning to the rural areas around our home or while we travel with my camera in hand, trying to capture the natural beauty I originally discovered as a young boy.

I've worked in the Information Technology field for many years as an application developer and software engineer, and systems analyst. My technology background has provided me with a solid foundation that has helped me better understand and use modern digital cameras, and the computers and software required to produce quality digital images.

Photography is a driving passion in my life and has provided me with a conduit which allows me to share with you the beauty and interesting aspects of my travels and explorations.  I hope you enjoy my work and I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions, comments, or if you are interested in working with me.
