Daniel Berehulak is an award-winning independent photojournalist based in New Delhi, India.  

 

A native of Sydney, Australia, Daniel has visited over 60 countries covering history-shaping events including the Iraq war, the trial of Saddam Hussein, child labour in India, Afghanistan elections and the return of Benazir Bhutto to Pakistan, and documented people coping with the aftermath of the Japan Tsunami and the Chernobyl disaster.

 

His coverage of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa was recognized with a Pulitzer prize for feature photography, one of several honors his photography has earned including five World Press Photo awards, two Photographer Of The Year awards from Pictures of the Year International and the prestigious John Faber award from the Overseas Press Club amongst others. 

 

Born to immigrant parents, Daniel grew up on a farm outside of Sydney, Australia. Their Ukrainian practicality did not consider photography to be a viable trade to pursue so at an early age Daniel worked on the farm and at his father's refrigeration company. After graduating from university his career as a photographer started humbly: shooting sports matches for a guy who ran his business from his garage. In 2002 he started freelancing with Getty Images in Sydney shooting mainly sport.

 

From 2005 Daniel was based in London and from 2009 in New Delhi, as a staff news photographer with Getty Images. 

 

As of July 2013, Daniel embarked upon a freelance career to focus on a combination of long-term personal projects, breaking news and client assignments.

 

He is a regular contributor to The New York Times.
