Danielle Falknor

Hello, my name is Danielle Falknor and I’m a photographer.

I was born in Hong Kong, grew up mostly in Dubai, and have spent the last eight years living in London. I studied photography in many academies, but most noticeably in the Surrey Institute of Art and Design, and since graduating, I have been trekking the world, getting married in Thailand and growing my photography business.

My passion for photography stemmed from my father. He was an American from Ohio, and fascinated with travelling, he taught me photography from a very young age. He gave me my first camera when I was 6 years old. It was a huge red brick that could barely fit into my hands, but the moment I clicked the shutter and heard the loud whirl of the film, I was totally hooked!

As a passionate amateur photographer, he had a huge collection of old SLR cameras and he let me use them all (within reason). His instruction pushed me to do better, to see the world through different eyes and to perfect the art of telling a story. His love and encouragement is always with me, and even after his death in 2005, I am still using his equipment and teaching others what he taught me. “Never click the shutter without feeling that shiver down your spine.”

I am very lucky to have a very close family even though we all live in the far-flung corners of the world. My Mum is from Surrey and is a full time socialite. She’s travelled around the world since she was 24, and one of the bravest women I know. She still lives in Dubai, and enjoys its party lifestyle.

My sister lives in Houston, and is my best friend ever. She’s the total American of our family, following in our Dad’s footsteps to be a successful career business manager. We don’t see each other much, but when we do, we have an absolute blast!
My brother is the youngest and an absolute character. He lives in Kingston, but his main ambition in life is to travel the world and to just ‘roll’.

Last but not least, my husband Phil from Australia. He’s a successful business owner but his true passion in life is running. He’s an elite marathoner, with a personal best of 2 hours and 15 minutes. His most recent adventure was to run the Camino de Santiago in Spain – a distance of over 600 miles, in 15 days! He is a source of constant inspiration and I’m so lucky to have him as the love of my life.

So now you know a bit more about me, I hope you have fun looking at my Photography shows! I have a website www.daniellefalknor.com and regularly update my Facebook and Twitter links, so that you know where I am and what I’m up to!
