|About||Houston-based Editorial Photographer|
Hi. Thanks for stopping in.
A little background... I grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin where my dad, Jerry Kramer, played football for the Vince Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers and also wrote four best-selling books about his experiences.
I have a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Minnesota where I played rugby and freelanced for the Minnesota Daily as both a writer and a photographer. I completed my internship at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
I have an M.F.A. in Documentary Photojournalism from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I completed my internship with Newsday and was accepted into the Eddie Adams' Workshop as one of the top 100 college photojournalists in the country.
My first professional project as a freelance photographer was retracing Mark Twain's route around the world on the 100th anniversary of his journey. I received 2,000 rolls of Kodachrome and free processing as a grant from Kodak. In all, it was worth about $40,000. You can see the resulting Blurb book here: http://www.blurb.com/b/2027588-re-marking-twain-s-equator
Ensuing projects include the Green Bay Packers: http://danielkramer.photoshelter.com/gallery/3-Generations-of-Green-Bay-Packers/G0000JyuX9Qz7OSQ/

I was the Staff Photographer for the Houston Press from 2003-2009 where I shot hundreds of covers and had my own photo column. I've also shot for Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times among others. My photojournalism has won local, national and international awards and has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.
I am an actively exhibiting fine-art photographer and my work has been shown at the International Photography Gathering in Syria; the Museum of Cultural Arts in Houston; the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA; the Leigh-Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wisconsin; The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO; the Minneapolis
