Dayne Farley was born in Baltimore, Maryland. His childhood home was an eclectic mix of languages, religions, customs, music, and art.  Visits to museums, galleries, concerts, exhibitions, and travel were common fare. He found opportunity around every hiking trail with his father, gardening and reading with his mother, the peaceful calm of the mountain grandeur, and the ferocity of the seashore. The diversity and perspective he gained through time, experience, and opportunity would inspire him to pursue a life of creating art.

When he first heard the guitar solo in Pink Floyd’s, “Time”, he immediately had to learn to play, and thus began his music interests.  Ultimately he would excel at guitar and later attend Berklee College of Music where ironically in his spare time, he would teach himself how to make photographs.

“ I often found myself walking the streets of Boston with a camera in my hand…I never really participated in the college parties and social gatherings. The energy of Boston captivated me and I preferred to wander aimlessly, meet amazing people, and shot as much as I could.”

Prior to his move from Boston, falling in love, and acquiring a BM Degree, he had already achieved recognition as a professional photographer. But LA gave him a new venue and new access to high profile clients, skilled artists, designers, actors, musicians, corporate professionals, performers, and the aspiring everyday person. His work has been published and featured globally.f304d4e4d97211e2a5bc22000a9e2899_6

His intellectual curiosity is vast and his attention to detail permeates his work. Nature and artifice, antiquity and modernity, harmony and juxtaposition, are equally inspired by his love of nature and his love of the street.

Dayne is currently living in California and continuing to fulfill his artistic calling. He is accepting clients for marketing campaigns, branding consultations, headshots, portraits, portfolios, or events. Please click here to email for availability/pricing information.
