For more than 38 years, Dan has been pursuing his lifelong dream of photographing nature in all its elements. He’s traveled to all seven continents, plying his craft in search of the images that help tell the stories that inspire his art. Driving rain, spitting snow, and howling wind are all part of the environment he calls home. For Dan, bad weather means great light, unusual cloud formations, and dramatic settings. Dan uses his exceptional vision and passion for nature to help educate and inspire his viewers. Internationally recognized, his dedication to his craft and the environment has earned him high regard in a very competitive profession.
In 2013, Dan was awarded Outstanding Nature Photographer of the Year by North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). He’s also been awarded in competitions worldwide including BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nature’s Best. His work has been featured in several galleries including Nikon House New York, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and the Natural History Museum in London. Dan’s wide range of accomplishments include being a regular contributor to natural history publications worldwide, a field contributor for Outdoor Photographer, a consultant for Hewlett-Packard (HP) fine art printers, an honorary Nikon Legend Behind the Lens, and a mentor for American Photo’s Mentor Series photography workshops.
