My name is Daniel Fox. I am an A.P.E.2, literally and figuratively. Genetically, I belong to the Hominidae taxonomic family, the great apes. And beyond that I am an artist/author (A), photographer/philosopher (P), explorer/entrepreneur (E). Three letters and a number that give me all the freedom to be what I want to be and do what I want to do. An acronym that connects me to my past while elevating my future.
I thrive on creating and finding new ways to inspire and educate. Through my work, I seek to inspire experiencing Nature as a framework, mindset and mentor for personal transformation. I believe that Nature has the power to Nurture, Awaken, Transform, Uplift, Restore and Elevate the human spirit.
I am extremely fortunate to be an ambassador for LEXUS, ARC’TERYX, SANDISK, and MANFROTTO.
“Fox is a modern Henry David Thoreau with the eye of an Ansel Adams. Through his compelling and intimate stories and his photography, Daniel invites us to look at nature not as a destination or as a separate entity, but rather as a mentor and mindset. His message is inspiring and reflective. He is a visionary who is able to deeply connect with the audience by sharing his vulnerability and personal journey.” Chip Conley, Hospitality entrepreneur and bestselling author
DIALOGUE & INTROSPECTION THROUGH INTIMACY & PERSPECTIVE. My photographs are catalysts for telling stories. Whether those stories are about our relationship with the natural world, about ourselves and our life's journey, or about the animals I connect with, my goal is always the same, to spark a dialogue within us and between us. The themes I explore through my photos are the notions of perspective, respect and connections.
I love coming together with others to share my personal joys and struggles, and how nature has inspired me to become the most authentic version of myself. My aim, whether I am on the stage, at a dinner or in an individual session, is to help people find peace within and see the beauty and hope that surrounds us.
I believe that experiencing the world through the lenses of humility, reciprocity and vulnerability opens the path to so many treasures and priceless discoveries. Transforming our struggles, challenges and pain into growth not only brings us happiness and peace, but also makes us celebrate what it means to be human. Life is not easy. Life is not fair. It is not meant to be fair. It is not meant to be perfect. It is meant to be lived, to be experienced and to learn and grow from.
My stories are the basis for a foundation that values and nurtures the journey of life, one that is resilient and not afraid of challenges. One that ultimately, makes us better people.
