DANIEL FICKLE'S artistry is diverse. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia and spent his youth contributing to Atlanta’s underground music scene. His natural affinity for songwriting had him touring as a member of multiple bands, including Portrait and The Station Myth. In his early twenties, he combined his creative and commercial interests and moved to New York to start his professional career as a photographer and filmmaker.
While in New York, Daniel paid his way as an instructor at the famed NY Film Academy. He quickly gained a reputation for his camera work, film scores, and creative vision as a director. After being awarded “Best Film” festival wins, Ebert and Roper “Picks of the Week,” and official selections to Sundance, Daniel started a photography and film agency where he could further develop his creative vision. He formed TWO PENGUINS PRODUCTIONS and within a few years, it had offices in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Portland, Oregon, with a client portfolio including GQ, Nike, InStyle, J.Crew, KEEN Footwear, and Gilt Groupe.
His work has been televised throughout France, featured as “Staff Picks” on Vimeo, Motionographer, and Daily Motion, and selected in over 90 film festivals, including SXSW. He has been awarded two Webby Honoree titles as Director of the series ‘GQ Rules’ and the short film ‘A House, A Home.’ His photography includes work for GQ Magazine, InStyle, Chase Bank, and KEEN Footwear.
And yet, Daniel’s creative outlook has always remained the same, irreverently sophisticated. He splits his time between New York & Portland, with recent photography campaigns in Guatemala & Greenland.
