Danielle Austen (February 2012) is an award winning photographer based in central New Jersey, who specializes in editorial, portrait and fine art photography in a documentary style. Danielle was trained in the traditional fine arts of painting, sculpture, drawing and photography where she received her BFA from Cornell University. She worked as a graphic designer for seven years before attending the master’s program at Syracuse University, S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, in photojournalism. Working for newspapers and magazines, she has been published locally, regionally and nationally, including the 2002 issue of “Life’s, The Year in Pictures.” She has participated in more than 18 national juried exhibits since 2008, and in late 2011 had a three month joint exhibit at the Atrium Gallery in Morristown, NJ. As both a trained editorial and fine art photographer, Danielle seeks the serenity of the moment and the spirituality in her subjects.
