Daniel J. Sliwa - Multimedia Designer and Content Strategist
I've always been in love with telling a visual story, as well as creating a mood for optimal escapism. My success with photography beginning in high school with honors and decorated with awards, which then bled over to attending college where I helped to found one of the largest Student Organization of Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Movie Camera Militia. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts, I relocated to Los Angeles, establishing a headquarters, and traveling across the U.S. and internationally for work too. No matter where I am or where I'm going, I strive to capture the truest moments with the realist of people, and those beliefs have guided me on a variety of adventures.
Currently living in Los Angeles, California and balancing contract/part-time work with freelance multimedia design and marketing strategy. My abilities are in the realms of: photography, videography, graphic design as well as most forms of media work. Having such a knowledge, combined with my marketing background has been key to formulating such a high volume of successful campaigns for my variety of clients. Knowing both the media and marketing side of things allows me to fully formulate, budget and execute campaigns efficiently.
In my few short years in Los Angeles I've been able to work with numerous entertainment, media, event and fashion companies, most notably: LA Weekly, LA Times, UFC, American Film Institute, Legacy Entertainment, Hautelook, Pan Am Experience, Geffen Playhouse, etc. and shot the first ever female Knighting in Los Angeles, when I covered (I'm not kidding) Pamela Anderson's Knighting Ceremony at the Bel Air Hotel. All-in-all, companies like me because I'm a chameleon of sorts- able to slip in and around any event space, adjust my eye to help shoot the latest fashion line, devise a 3 month tech campaign in less than 72 hours, and so on and so forth. Have recently just celebrated shooting 700+ nightlife events. No matter the media needs at hand I'm always up for the challenge and honored when I see another happy client's smile.
I'm currently, open to taking photography, graphic design and marketing requests from various sources. I always offer some of the most profound insight for the best available price, and price bend for my client's based on their needs and means.
