My name is Daniel Möckel, I am a 35-year-old mechanical engineer living in Germany. I like skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing & fishing. I also love travelling and usually plan my trips around the mentioned hobbies as well as wildlife and nature photography possibilities.
When I was a kid I was fascinated by wild animals and spent every day looking for them in the local woods and meadows. As a teenager I fell in love with skateboarding where filming video clips is as much a part of it as doing the tricks themselves. After destroying my dad’s VX camcorder and a few other cameras I bought an old Sony SLT when DSLRs first got video capabilities. I used it exclusively for filming however and only when I went to Sweden for a semester did that change.
I wanted to capture the amazing landscape and wildlife of Scandinavia and started to research the relation of ISO, f-stop, shutter speed and focal length to improve my photos. I read every blog post about nature photography I could find as well as a few books and watched heaps of online tutorials. Ever since I never left for a holiday without my camera and captured every sunrise and sunset I could get away with.
For me personally photography means taking a single exposure to capture a moment in time. I don’t like exposure blending and only do it for the sake of panoramic images. This is partially due to me being a bit of a purist but probably mostly because I much prefer taking photos over post processing them. Since I already spend most of my workdays on a computer, I want to get outside in my free time instead of sitting in front of a screen even more.
I use my photos mostly to create calendars for my family and close friends each year and post the odd shot on my Instagram account “mckldnl_”.
I have a bunch of photo books at home, mostly Wildlife Photographer Of The Year and Red Bull Illume year books. As a long term goal I would love to get one of my photos in either of these books, alongside the best of the best photographers of wildlife and action sports out there.
