Danny Steyn is an accomplished professional photographer with over 20 years of experience. Starting his photographic career while still at school, Danny, at the ripe old age of 13, had his first sports photos published way back in 1973 in “The Star” – the major South African daily national evening newspaper.
This early success prompted a freelance photojournalist career, and Danny started supplying the national magazines and journals with his photos in the early 80’s.
Danny had his photos published in most major South African magazines, with regular covers and features in monthly magazines such as PLAYBOY, SCOPE, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, PENTHOUSE, STYLE, STAR, SATYR, SQUIRE, STAG and a host of other well known publications.
Danny graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1983, underscoring his strong technical competence. Danny emigrated to the USA in 1993, and after traveling the entire USA, finally settled in Fort Lauderdale from where he operates to this day. The excellent airports in Fort Lauderdale and Miami serve his international travel assignments well, and the proximity to the Caribbean Islands and Bahamas has him regularly taking photographic assignments in the tropical islands.
Danny’s strong business sense has resulted in a very successful array of businesses encompassing a wide range of interests. Despite the demands of these businesses, Danny has continued to drive his photography and videography business with the relentless enthusiasm that you only get from doing something you love, and this has resulted in a prosperous business complete with home based Studio in central Fort Lauderdale.
True to his past, Danny mainly concentrates his cameras on subject matter that appeals to him. Danny can always be found photographing beautiful women, taking headshots of actors and models, photographing fast cars and bikes, active extreme sports, and fitness models.
