About Me


About Dmcfadden

I’m a photographer who brings exceptional knowledge and enthusiasm to every photo shoot.

D. is a New York-based Photographer that loves to tell stories with pictures. Being a self-taught photographer, D. firmly believes that everyone or everything has a story to share. D. comes at photography from an interesting
angle-that of someone who has dyslexia. D. knows first-hand that words aren’t always the best ways to communicate ideas, thoughts,
and feelings. Images know no boundaries-language, age, gender, learning or intellectual disability. Was that heavy enough?-good. You never know which D. you’re going to get. Even Willy Wonka had his intellectual moments. D. loves
people and he loves to tell stories, and at the end of the day, that’s
what he is a storyteller and a damn good one.



I have had the absolute pleasure of getting to know D. over the past year. I think it’s extremely important when you’re working with someone professionally to also build a personal relationship. When D. first reached out to me, I had zero experience in modeling. I knew I always wanted to pursue modeling, but didn’t know how or if I even had the confidence to do so. D. not only helped me in the world of photography but took a step further to assume the role as my mentor. His dedication, passion, and kindness have made me into the confident model I am today. D’s work and talent speak for itself. He builds relationships with every person he works with, which is why his portfolio is evidently impressive. If you ever have the chance to work with him, do so. I promise you will not regret it.

I had the opportunity to shoot alongside D. on several occasions. I’ve never witnessed someone invest so much of themselves into organizing and preparing for a shoot.  Paying attention to all of the important details for shoots, like having professional MUA artist, lighting, the best locations, and even making sure everyone on location had food and water, I can’t think of any other person I would rather shoot with. D. is professional in every sense of the word and more importantly, he is down to earth and understanding that everyone is on a different level in their journey or career, whether model, photographer, or MUA.  No matter where you are in this journey, you will walk away from shooting with him having three things; a great experience, some great photos, and a new creative friend that you can depend on to help you in your journey. Whether it’s helping with getting published, or helping get your portfolio to the next level, D. is definitely someone I’d recommend working with. Looking forward to shooting by your side again

My experience working with D. was incredible in every way. Aside from being a great photographer he is very kind, humble and a great person to be around. He is your number one hype man as soon as you step in front of the camera. He will give the direction you need and makes you feel confident in what you are doing. i had so much fun during our shoot.
