Danielle Levitt is a film director who began as a classical portrait and fashion photographer. She has been a driving force behind the authentic youth oriented movement in editorials and campaigns. This attention to the pulse led Levitt to a body of work that was a prescient examination of contemporary youth. Her work with marginal communities and divergent subcultures culminated in her first monograph book “We Are Experienced” by Powerhouse Books. For Levitt, is has always been important that she showcases the under-represented and to celebrate diversity, inspiring others to feel comfortable with who they are. Alongside her thriving commercial and fashion photography career, she has become an award winning film director, having created original film content for publications and brands such as Apple, Dazed, i-D, Vice, HP, Time and Nowness. In 2016, her first year as a commercial director, Danielle garnered 2 Silver Lions, a Silver Pencil, and a Creative Arts Emmy for best commercial with her Ad Council spot “Love Has No Labels.” This piece ranked as the second most-watched ad on Youtube in 2015, with 59 million views and counting.
