Daniel Schindler

From the day he was born, Daniel Schindler has always had a passion for everything Chicago has to offer. As soon as he could hold a pen, one of his favorite activities as a kid became sketching the Chicago skyline. As time moved on, Daniel made an ongoing effort to learn more about the city he called home, from its history, culture, architecture, wildlife, and anything in between.

When much of the world shut down in 2020, Daniel used his newfound time to explore and photograph Chicago first hand with a borrowed drone. This quickly took a passing interest in photography, that he developed from his grandpa, and ignited it into a newfound passion. Daniel has since aspired to use his photography as a way to continue exploring his hometown, as well as a platform to share his love and knowledge of the Windy City in a fun and approachable way.
