Daniel Soares - Art Director

Thanks for stopping by!

I’m an independent Filmmaker, Photographer and Creative Director based in NYC. With my work, I strive to create meaningful pieces that impact people’s lives. I grew up in Germany and Portugal and have been living in the US since 2013. I’ve worked for various agencies including Droga5, VICELAND, Anomaly, and Mother.

Someone also thought it was a good idea to let me teach at Miami Ad School. My work has won some shiny trophies, was exhibited at the International Center of Photography and featured on ABC News, The Guardian, Mashable, Buzzfeed and Huffington Post. I'm obsessed with people, their quirks, passions, and dreams. The weirder, the better.
