Danielle Bardis "In June of 2009 I graduated from the Hallmark Institute of Photography, where I received the Greatest Professional Improvement Award. With the technical knowledge I learned at Hallmark I am now able to combine manipulating the camera with my own style and creativity to the things I see around me. I am drawn to images that capture the essence of the human spirit and ones that show off the magic of nature. I hope to make images that others can connect with and be inspired by since we all share the commonalities of the human experience and the world we live in."
