Gregory Daniel, M.Photog.Cr., F-ASP, has been elected to the Board of Directors for Professional Photographers of America.

Made up of working professional photographers, the PPA board helps guide the largest non-profit professional photography association. Daniel is proud to serve PPA in such a leadership capacity.

“I truly love this profession and all that it has provided my family, clients and myself from a creative and financial perspective,” said Daniel. “The skills I have obtained through entrepreneurship, photographic association leadership positions and upper management for the Space Program provide me with some unique resources to contribute.”

A PPA member for 30 years, Daniel founded Gregory Daniel Portrait Artist in 1979. With the help of his wife, Lesa, Daniel continues to operate two portrait photography galleries, one in Indiatlantic and another in their hometown of Titusville, Fla. Daniel also owns Daniel Properties, a commercial and residential property management company, and held multiple management positions with the Space Shuttle Program from 1979 to 2006.

Daniel is a highly decorated photographer. With PPA, he has achieved the title of Photographic Craftsmen in 1988, Master of Photography in 1989, and received the Imaging Excellence Award in 2005. He has been a PPA-affiliated instructor for many years and has earned numerous awards from PPA affiliates as well. In addition, Daniel has held committee chair positions for Cameracraftsmen of America and is a founding member of the International Society of Portrait Artists (ISPA).

Daniel’s passion is creating a fun environment of friendship that is revealed in his portraits by expression and beauty. By adding an element of fun to his art, he produces work that is pleasing both to clients and art critics alike. With his new role on the board, Daniel hopes his unique blend perspective, skills and best practices will help wherever needed. He hopes to leverage his years of experience and connections within the photographic industry to serve and further PPA’s mission, delivering trusted resources and supporting its members in growing more profitable businesses.
