Daniel Stier is a photographer and director originally from Germany, but now based in London. Working across photography genres, he creates rigorous studio environments imbuing his work with a scientific, almost clinical feeling. He constantly plays with this scientific approach to lead the viewer through an ambiguous journey of ‘truths’ and ‘mistruths’. The almost detached lens through which Daniel views his subject (whether people or object) creates a unique and inimitable folio of work where discovery is paramount to the viewer.
Daniel has published a book ‘Ways of Knowing’ and has had his work featured in Wallpaper*, It’s Nice That, The Telegraph, Der Grief, The New York Times and Spiegel to name but a few.
Recent clients include Barclays, Volkswagen, Skoda, SONY, Orange, Norwegian, Virgin Media, Harvey Nichols and Budweiser.
Daniel Stier was recently commissioned to create another accessories shoot for 10 Magazine. Shot for their Men special issue, Daniel styled and art directed the project from his studio set-up in his inimitable style where throw away culture meets high-end luxury items.
Daniel Stier was recently commissioned by Wired to shoot chef and TV personality, Heston Blumenthal. Known for his experimental approach to food, Heston was shot with a robot in Daniel’s signature style.
Daniel Stier was recently commissioned to shoot a fashion accessories story for 10 Magazine. Featuring this season items from brands such as Fendi and Gucci, Daniel counterpoises luxury goods against cheap and disposable plastic iconography to create striking imagery.
