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 shoots a new editorial for Zeit Magazin in Germany. Shooting on the concept of Mittelstands (small businesses), Daniel has created a series of fun and playful still life images.
Daniel Stier recently shot a new group portrait for T Magazine (The New York Times Style Magazine). Daniel a shot a group of English interior designers known for their eccentric and opulent taste at the Sir John Soane’s Museum in Holborn.
