Daniel Everett graduated from Brigham Young University in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in photography. He received a master's degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2009. Everett later returned to BYU as an assistant professor in the Art Faculty.

In 2006, he was awarded an Oscarson Discovery Grant which enabled him to relocate to Toronto, Canada and intern as an assistant to photographer Edward Burtynsky. In 2010, Everett had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, as part of the UBS 12 x 12: New Artists/New Work series.

In 2012, Everett served as a mentor to Ronald Linn as part of a print exchange, a corroborative printmaking project between BYU and the University of Hawaii. An exhibit of the final works was displayed at the Harris Fine Arts Center on BYU campus and at the Honolulu Print Makers Guild. The same year, his work was displayed at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts as part of the "Salt Series" at the University of Utah and then at the Utah Ties Juried Exhibition held at the Central Utah Art Center.

Everett received the Foam Talent Award in 2014 from Foam Museum, an contemporary photography museum in Amsterdam. He was one of 21 artists selected from a pool of 1,473 candidates from seventy-one countries. A portfolio of his images was published in the annual Foam talent issue and a selection of his work was included in a traveling group exhibition. In September of that year, Everett was invited to Amsterdam to speak about his work in conjunction with the Unseen Photo Festival. As a result of receiving this award, his work was featured in three international exhibitions in Amsterdam, Paris, and Dubai.

The same year, Everett was contacted by Granta Magazine, a London-based arts and literature publication. He was asked to create a new photographic work to accompany the new essay "Some Heat" by Miranda July, an award-winning film director, screenwriter, actor, author, and artist. The photography work is featured in Issue 129 of the magazine.

In 2015, he was selected as a recipient of the Visual Arts Fellowship from the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, which is a $10,000 award intended to acknowledge artistic excellence and facilitate continued career growth for outstanding artists in Utah. The same year, the LDS Church purchased a piece of his artwork to display in the Church vs. State Exhibition at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.
