On a stormy night in October 1980, a child was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East England. The son of a biker and a yoga guru; he was destined for great things. Unknowingly, he lived his days dreaming of becoming a rock star. He studied fervently and fronted a few bands (try saying that quickly) until, one fateful day in 1996, he was given an old Yashica SLR.
Immediately there was a change in him, nay, a change in the universe around him, as he began his metamorphosis into… The Subtle Sensor – Photographer at large.
Some say it was as if he had been bitten by Peter Parker and The Mask in the same night; others say he locked himself away in dark rooms and only came out at night; yet more think that maybe he went to college, studied photography, then took a job working as a photographer on board cruise ships in the Bahamas and the Caribbean and came back with a great tan and an eye for composition.
Perhaps there is some truth in all of it, all that is known for sure is that today, that child is known by the name Daniel Richard Romani and can be found working as a photographer in Newcastle upon Tyne under the name Subtle Sensor Photography.
You’ve made it this far, so you must be one of the many who are intrigued by his vision of the world around him. Seen through eyes not unlike your own but aided by a 21 mega-pixel Canon camera and an array of top quality lenses; his visions are subtle, delicate and above all, beautiful.
His work is carried out as the light begins to break over Newcastle and continues until the sun is extinguished for another night. It is then that the magic begins; high in his watchtower, in small rooms with low ceilings, he powers up his AMD Athlon quad-core computer with 24inch colour managed LCD monitor and brings life to digital photographs of stunning landscapes, commanding architecture and breathtaking model portfolios.
Some say he has mastered the art of micro-napping and never sleeps; others say his only weaknesses are cheese, chocolate, red wine and sandwiches; yet more say he also photographs corporate events, blending into the background and making prey of extraordinary shared moments that would otherwise go unnoticed in everyday society.
Perhaps there is some truth in all of it. Perhaps we will never know. What we do know is that his perfectionism and professionalism are complimented by a keen eye for beauty and a dark, dark sense of humour.
You have been warned.
