I have known Byron Dauncey since April 2012, he is an uncommonly mature person for his age. Thoughtful, capable, discreet and never intrusive. He is a very gifted photographer of people—both in candid situations and in the studio. He is one of the pioneers of the unposed fashion photograph, which seems to be an increasingly popular idiom. The proofs he has shown me of these photos reveal a sensitivity to the personalities and capture the decisive moment so essential for such a photograph. Byron has accompanied me on some of my forays into the older parts of the city and he consistently comes away with strong, innovative photographs. We both derive enormous pleasure from each others company during these walkabouts.  — Fred Herzog.

Byron is strategic, creative and thoughtful in his approach to photography and candid storytelling. As a public relations specialist,  Byron gave me the tools to speak to the press and represent an event through image – Ashleigh Said, PR Manager, Eco Fashion Week
