“I had the pleasure of meeting Daniel Quat at a horse show in Santa Fe. Most event photographers are direct to the point of being rude and hasty in their shots… not Daniel! He took the time to ask me to ride a certain direction so he could get a beautiful shot that illustrated the connection between me and my horse. I loved the shot and bought it! Not only can he artfully capture moments, but he can do one hell of a job editing. He took unwanted boxes out of the background and made the shots overall much cleaner to look at. He quickly responded. He went above and beyond. I received three fully edited, focused, beautifully shot moments in time for the same rate I normally pay for one, un edited event picture (that usually isn’t even well taken). I would happily recommend Daniel’s services to anyone. I plan on booking him in the spring and already have a list of clients that are going to do the same. Thank you!!! I am so impressed and happy with your work!”  – Ashleigh Willems, Equestrian

Exhibition of Ageless Beauty at Brookdale Senior Living in Santa Fe, NM.

Brookdale Senior Living, one of the most prestigious independent and assisted living facilities in Santa Fe invited me to photograph 15 of their residents for a program that Brookdale was featuring called, “Ageless Beauty”. Last fall, we set up a studio in their game room and one by one, hair and makeup ready, they were photographed–some with a prop to suggest their interest (a painting, a golf club, a credit card, a hershey bar) and others just as they were. I hope I captured their beauty and grace, proving once again that beauty has no age limit. These residents are in their mid 80’s and 90’s. Bio’s accompanied each framed portrait and the attendees to the show remarked how great it was to hear about the accomplishments of these people.

The exhibition held in February 2018 was very well attended by the Santa Fe community, the residents and their families. We plan on taking this exhibition around other venues in Santa Fe. All photography © Daniel Quat Photography

Still Life Portfolio from the Good Old Days

Here’s my still life portfolio from my time in NYC a few years back. Some of the images are a bit dated, but I hope you can see the basic lighting and composition skills here represented. Of course today, my skills have grown more sophisticated but I thought showing where I came from would be helpful to some potential clients and to my current photography clients. (Please note that the Cocoa related shots were art constructions created by Myra McKenzie with my assistance.)

Diva Diamonds Gets a Facelift!!

So excited to show you the product of my recent collaboration with Xynergy and Diva Diamonds. We worked on getting their website up and running with new banner photos that show their unique selection of Diamond and Gemstone jewelry.

Jennifer Minnich art directed and styled the shots. I found a great reflective surface and lit them all. What do you think? These diamonds and precious stones are top quality…Hope that comes through.

High School Senior Graduation Photos

Here are some photos from graduation portraits from the past. Some in the studio and some on location. Also see the session I posted, “Reanne…”. Call or email me to discuss your portrait session. Let’s have fun and capture your essence in a portrait!! Daniel

Divine Dental gets personal!

Dr. Esmael Valdez owns and operates two dental practices one in Santa Fe, NM. and Las Vegas NM. His company hired me to photograph the staff for studio headshots, the offices in both locations and Dr. V and the staff working there in and to document more about the man himself by shadowing him and his children on their ranch near Lamy, NM. Here are some of those personal shots…more to come…

 

Randy and Janet get married at Loretto Chapel with photography by Santa Fe Photographer, Daniel Quat

Randy and Janet hailed from Lubbock Texas and had a clear idea of what they wanted for their Santa Fe Destination Wedding. Randy wanted to wear his heavy wool jacket and cowboy boots; Janet her beautiful wedding dress and boots. What Randy didn’t realize was the day they were getting married, would be 85 degrees…Still his vision for his wedding photos persisted. They also had definite images in mind including La Fonda Hotel and St. Francis Cathedral in the background. Thank you Randy and Janet for allowing me to capture these special moments.
Hereby some photos from this magical day:

Kitren and Justin, Married in Canyon Road Art Gallery!

What a day it was! Kitren Fischer and Justin Cox tied the proverbial knot surrounded by loved ones and beautiful art and sculpture in the garden and gallery of Selby-Fleetwood on Canyon Road last autumn. The photos tell all…I was so pleased with Justin’s testimonial that i decided to add it to the photos here. (after all it is my blog right?)

“Everything about working with Daniel was wonderful, from initial contact to getting the final images. He was very professional yet comfortable when helping us find the right level of his services that fit in our budget. He took the time to try to find out what was important to us for our event and then he made sure those things happened. He was very conscious to learn and confirm our logistical details and was always on time (actually he was always early even in a place where parking is sparse). His personality and professionalism during our event helped make us comfortable and helped us keep natural smiles through the pre-event shoot. Yet once the event started he was very discrete and was able to get lots of great images without really being noticed and without ever being in the way. The images he provided were absolutely gorgeous and we’re thrilled with the end result. He did a wonderful job documenting our special life event and I can’t recommend him more.”
