About Danny Mendoza

How did it all happen?

For me everything began when I started to follow the light.


I am not quite sure how to describe it. I just noticed that the mood of the moment was different when you changed or modified the light… and to take it even further from that, the colors as well. All the colors around me changed. In brightness and tone. How I saw everything around me changed in an instant into feelings that I can’t possibly put in words.


Colors, shapes and shadows where the things to notice at first but the light… oh boy! THE LIGHT was the one thing that changed my perspective of everything.


Not only in photography, in my life as well, to follow the light has been one of my ultimate goals. As a family man I can honestly tell you that when you put things or situations under a different light everything can change, even your state of mind. You could be sad sometimes but I can assure you that there are images you possess that bring a smile to your face. Am I right?


My little one can go to sleep safe and sound after I have lit underneath her bed just in case there are little monsters, you know.

When I am having a bad day the photographs of my baby girl, my light, help me push through and conquer in the end. Trust me, it happens very often.


It is the beauty of light and color that have led me to where I am right now as a photographer. Light has enabled me to have and re-experience some of the greatest moments I have gone through in my life and better yet…to share them with friends and family has no price.

Being married has taught me that every single moment is precious and that they are not coming back. I love looking back and re-experiencing my gorgeous times with my family. Memories will fade, but photos are forever. I know I enjoy looking at my treasured memories and even occasionally showing them off. 

Great Expectations

That is what I truly desire for all my clients. I want them to have beautiful moments to look at through beautiful photographs. Moments that make them re-experience their feelings. Their human touch. The reason why they push through day by day, the reason they change their state of mind for the better of them and their families.

I want my clients, and everyone for that matter, to see the way I feel about the beauty that we are gifted with every single day. I want them to be sure that, as a professional, their moments will be treated with all my attention, passion and photographic skill so that in the end they can show off their photos as pieces of Art.


For me this is a process that I have called “Explore The Heart Within” where more than memories are re-lived. It is the elegance and the beauty of every moment that makes everything worthwhile.


It would be my greatest pleasure if you would allow me the honor of recording your most precious moments in your life and display them in the heart of your home for everyone to see.


After all, in life as in photography, everything is about the LIGHT.
