"I shoot what I can't help but shoot"

About the photographer

Throughout Dan's life, photography became a hobby that was especially gratifying while capturing backpacking trips as a Boy Scout during his teen years.

Dan's involvement with photography evolved as his relationship and respect for nature’s grandeur became an inspiration. Whether he was on a beach, in the desert, up high in the mountains, or immersed on a city street, this passion has evolved into his current work. Now based in San Diego, CA, Dan is afforded many photo opportunities as he explores the streets, nearby mountains, and coastlines of this wonderful area.  His primary areas of interest include Architecture, Landscapes, and Urban Exploration.  Late 2016, his work explored the eras of Romanticism thru Impressionism where his interpretation applies to photography.  He is now producing medium format film images creating even more creative art.

His artistic ambition is: "Shoot how it feels, not what you see."  His hope is that you'll enjoy the perspective and point of view he brings to the images he pushes the button for.
