ABOUT ME

 

Thanks to everyone who has helped keep me at a 5% share of images on Flickr EXPLORE! And to drive one to over 200,000 views. I love that you you keep coming and commenting so kindly about my work. It makes my every day to be a little contribution to your photography enjoyment .

 

I recently turned down Corbis, so I can continue to donate my images to environmental and educational causes.

 

I've been taking photos since I was 8 and built my own darkroom with the help of my Dad. I almost became a pro, but my heart was in nature photography and that's a hard living. Went college, got married, had a kid, and then life happened. My other passions are economics, high-tech, and writing; which is where I built my career. Then in 1998, when I bought a digital camera and Photoshop to see if this was going to turn into a big market. I was hooked. I love digital, it's everything film never was. It favors the creative side of you rather than the technical side. So, for me, it's a great release.

  

I do love flickr and all the great work of so many photographers. Especially that of the many contacts I have met around the world, people who have somehow found my work enjoyable and send me so many faves and wonderful comments. I do try to view all the photos they post, though I can't possibly comment on so many. I prefer to fav the ones I like, instead of commenting, as it is faster. If I do comment, you know I really mean it. I will also brazenly say I devote a greater proportion of my time to those who spend time reviewing and giving me feedback. I feel that this is only fair.

ABOUT THE PHOTOS

 

Today, WildPhotons photos are used to illustrate my writing and presentations, which are largely about economics, science, and technology. .

 

WildPhoton’s photos can be purchased as limited edition fine art glicée prints or for publication. You can find Wildphoton’s fine art prints gracing the homes and offices of hundreds of wonderful and respected people around the globe. I am also more than happy to donate work for educational and environmental purposes.

I don't know how Dan gets these shots. They are the best wildlife photos I have found on Flickr. This is one talented photographer who we can all learn a lot from. His ability to capture these rare photos is astounding.
