More About Daniel Sroka

Photography and computers have been part of my life since I was young. I grew up with cameras around the house, and my childhood desk was an old light table my father made. I spent many days working in our basement darkroom, listening to the floorboards creak overhead. When I was 12, I earned my first computer by scraping a hundred years of paint off my uncle's house. I wanted to use it to make art, but this was the late 70s, so if you wanted a program you had to write it yourself. No one told me how hard that would be, so I taught myself to code, and created my own painting software.

My talent with art and computers helped me pay my way through college, and lead me to my first career as a graphic designer. I started at a mom-and-pop print shop and worked my way up from job to job. I eventually became the original creative director for Yahoo!, where I helped transform them from a quirky curiosity into a globally-recognized brand.

But I grew tired of working to help other people achieve their dreams, while ignoring my own. So after a lot of thought I quit my corporate career, and turned my attention back towards my original love — photography. I have now spent over 15 years growing and developing my vision as an artist. I have been able to use my years of experience in design and marketing to launch my art career, as well as run a successful internet business inspired by my art.
