This director of photography is best known for his work with "Gen-X" director Richard Linklater. Daniel got his start as a camera assistant on the thriller remake "DOA" (1988) and met up with Linklater the following year. The two teamed up on "Slacker" (1989), a dark-horse hit about Texas college kids, and the tribute to 1970s pot-heads "Dazed and Confused" (1993), with Daniel acting as cinematographer and director of photography, respectively. He subsequently worked with Linklater on the Ethan Hawke-Julie Delpy romance "Before Sunrise" (1995), shot in 38 days in Vienna. The latter was a change for Daniel, who used richer and warmer hues to highlight the growing relationship between the two leads.
