Daniel Schwab is a business man and community leader based in Afton, Wyoming. He has lived in Wyoming's Star Valley for almost the entirety of his life. As a child, he adventured and fly-fished in the spring creeks, instilling in him a lifelong appreciation and love for the environment. As a businessman, Daniel has fused his love for nature into every professional venture he's made.

He is the Founder and Director of TerraWest Conservancy, a company that provides landowners with opportunities to protect the habitats and the threatened or endangered species that call their land home. He also owns Feathered Hook of Jackson Hole, a private fly-fishing club with over 100 miles of premier water. Most recently, in 2019, Daniel opened Renegade Wyoming, a conservation-based property in the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

When he's not in the environment, Daniel Schwab is constantly photographing different landscapes and wildlife. He full-heartedly believes that the photographs that he takes are a gift from God, and he never intends to sell any for profit. Instead, when asked what he does with the photographs, he donates them to charities or gifts them to family and friends. His main goal with his photography is to ensure that everyone understands the beauty of the Earth that God gave us.

Daniel's life's passion is to be able to ensure that the natural environment is protected and flourishes and that the people and animals that live in the environment are protected as well. He hopes that the work that he does improves the lives of everyone involved. Daniel is constantly committed to the people in his community and has even gone so far as to donate to a number of charitable organizations and causes that he believes in. For example, Daniel has helped fund a number of scholarships that help support local students and athletes.
