Obligation Celebration


Danielle Levitt is a film director and classical portrait and fashion photographer. For Levitt, It has always been important that she showcases the under-represented, celebrates diversity, and inspires others to feel comfortable with who they are and 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. 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 One Show Silver Pencil, and a Creative Arts Emmy for best commercial with her Ad Council spot “Love Has No Labels”. In 2018 she was awarded a Gold Lion and a One Show Gold Pencil for her spot for the National Down Syndrome Society, C21. Levitt continues her marrying of commerce and art with campaigns for such brands as Uber, Planned Parenthood, HBO, Doc Martens, Nike, Third Love, and W hotels.
