"I love being the explorer as well as the photographer. For me photography of the natural world is more than just pretty settings and cuddly animal photos. It's a concern for the environment and the earth all living creatures must share."
For 20 years, Dan has been pursuing his life long dream of photographing nature at its finest.. and not so finest. "Driving rain, spitting snow and howling wind are all part of the environment I call home. For me bad weather means great light, unusual clouds and dramatic settings." Internationally recognized, Dan has used his exceptional vision and passion for the natural world to bring it to life for his viewers. His dedication and love for his photography has earned him high regard in his profession. In 1990 and 1997 Dan was awarded with 1st runner-up in the animal portrait division in the prestigious British Broadcasting "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" competition. His photography has been featured in galleries such as Nikon House, NY and the Natural History Museum in London. He is also a regular contributor to natural history publications worldwide, such as National Geographic, Audubon, National Wildlife, Sierra, Wildlife Conservation and Terre Sauvage, and sole photographer to seven books. There is a unique reverence for nature in Dan's photography- an understated awe for the magic of the living world. "This is what makes my world exciting -the unknown elements of nature which comes in many forms". His main collection of photos is represented by Natural Exposures, Inc., a specialized stock agency located in the foothills of the Bridger Mountains in Bozeman, Montana, a place still referred to as "God's Country." A place he also calls home.
