Dante Dauz walked different paths before following his true passion for photography. His experience has made him a jack of all trades: serving as a United States Marine, working in a creativity crushing cubicle as an auto insurance agent, providing personal training services and even assisting a musical composer. It was during that time when his life took a fortuitous turn. He began shooting the orchestral sessions at the composer’s request, and it re-ignited his passion for photography. Dante began seeking knowledge through various outlets, eventually landing at Santa Monica College as a full time photography student.
