About me:

Dan was born in the UK but a passion for mountain life soon found him leaving his engineering background in England and setting up in British Columbia, Canada. In the resort town of Whistler he turned to photography as a full time career and quickly made a name for himself amongst the action sports community, shooting alongside many of the world's best athletes.

Dan's editorial images have appeared in over 100 publications around the world and his commercial work is used by brands such as Nike, Red Bull and Salomon.

He splits his time between shooting editorial and commercial work as well as running his educational photography business which aims to teach other young photographers through seminars, magazine articles and contributions to several photography websites like DPReview.com and ProVideoCoalition.com

You can find more of Dan's writing on his own photography website, ShutterMuse.com
