Daniel Forster is a world renowned marine photographer who has had his work
appear in every major yachting magazine in Europe, the USA, New Zealand and Australia. Two of his images have appeared on the cover of Time
magazine - once in 1987 featuring Dennis Conner; then again in 1995 featuring Team New Zealand.
Born in Switzerland, photography was introduced to Daniel at a young age through his family. Daniel attended a technical school for photography that offered an apprenticeship program which provided one of many early steps that lead to his career as a freelance photographer.
Daniel has covered every America’s Cup race since 1977, and will continue this streak by covering the next America’s Cup Races in New Zealand in 2021. Daniel has also photographed the Whitbread and Volvo Ocean Race starts and finishes, as well as sailed on the Uruguay to England leg of the Whitbread in 1986 aboard the UBS Switzerland maxi yacht where he served as both crew member and photographer.
In addition to covering racing, Daniel’s work has taken him to Cape Horn, The Beagle Channel, the Galapagos and the Amazon. He’s also been commissioned by owners of yachts to document in book format their participation in major sailing events.
We talk about all this and more. Daniel has a great sense of humor and wonderful approach to his pursuit.
