Dan Coronado is a freelance photographer & cinematographer from San Diego, CA & Creative Director at Epik Films. He now lives in Murrieta, CA with his wife & 3 children, but finds himself working throughout Southern CA with extended time in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Ruidoso, New Mexico, Las Vegas, Nevada & Melbourne, Australia on a yearly basis.
Dan has been capturing rectangularish pieces of art since 2002, and loves the opportunities he gets to influence other young artists to pursue their own art in the classroom or out in the field. Traveling in bands and for local clothing companies in his youth brought about other opportunities in the industry doing work for companies such as Red Bull & Osiris Shoe Company, & his philanthropy has led him to work for non-profits such as Simply Youth Ministries, Youth Specialties, Catalyst Racing Team & several local churches & schools in San Diego.
His favorite thing about creating art is getting the chance to think a little outside of the box & share stories. Sometimes he does this through stills & when necessary through moving pictures. Documentary film making & music videos have been some of his favorite avenues to do so, due to the fact that he gets the chance to emote feeling through a narrative story, edit the story to a beat, & draw you in through sun-kissed visuals that pay tribute to his photography.
