Was a professional freelance photographer at a very young age...between 1978 to 1983. Started to pursue his music profession during the middle of his photography career. This was the reason he left the field professionally. During the five year period stated above...Daniel Larsen specialized in concert photography, capturing an amazing array of legendary talented artists performing at various venues, in the San Francisco Bay Area. He used two 35mm fully manual cameras, various lenses, experimented with filters once in a great while, mainly macro & star filters. The second camera was a classic Cannon FTB. He also had his own black and white darkroom. It was very exciting for Daniel to come home from a concert, develop his B&W film/proof sheets within hours after the show, while listening to the band's music, experienced that particular evening.
