Brett Danton

Director / DOP

For over two decades, Brett Danton has been widely recognised as a highly successful commercial photographer and motion director both in the UK and Australia.

Brett was born in New Zealand and then raised in the UK. As a child he spent a great deal of time in television control rooms, observing his TV presenter parents whilst they reported live on air. This early acquaintance with film and valuable experience on set established his interest in photography and moving image and began the start of his industry know how at an early age.

Aged 21 Brett moved to Australia where his career quickly took shape, shooting international campaigns for clients including Land Rover, Range Rover, Interface, Emirates Airlines, Qantas, Coca-Cola, Electrolux, Canon, BMW, Nick Scali Furniture, LuxDeco, Sotto and Uncle Bens.

In early 2014 Brett relocated back to the UK, allowing his European clients closer access to his creative savoir faire. A point of difference for Brett has been his ability to shoot stills and direct moving image simultaneously. By utilising the latest technology, he has been able to provide full service; creative, stills and tvc’s for commercial projects.

Brett is an avid early adopter of new technologies. He lectures on behalf of Canon and helps them develop their workflow, equipment and technology.
