Dan Schwalm is an architectural photographer for HDR’s global architecture company based out of Omaha, Nebraska. He creates visually compelling images for projects ranging in size from 1,000 square feet to millions of square feet for both domestic and international HDR architects, interior designers and other professionals to help tell their project stories, all while adhering to a corporate budget.

Dan was exposed to photography at a young age, with his father being a professional photographer and photography teacher at a local high school. While initially interested in photographing cars and skateboards, Dan eventually transitioned into working as a photography assistant at HDR. This exposed him to a more diverse pool of subject matter and helped him realize his passion for a bold architectural style of photography. Today, Dan’s work is featured in many publications, and he has helped HDR win an ever-increasing amount of design awards.
