"for my money, one of the best photographers on the internet."

"When I first was on Fotolog, it was obvious there were a few photographers head and shoulders above the rest. Macwagen was right up there. A true Fotolog rock star.
I met Dan once at a meetup; several of us were curious about how many "reverse" FF he had. He reluctantly admitted, at last count, "somewhere around 1700".
Dan shoots with a passion. He's got his photographer's eye always open, and I'm always impressed with what he sees. Doubly so because I frequently walk past things Dan has shot with nary a glance. One to watch, for sure."
February 17th, 2005
"Looking at Dan's stream is like looking at a brand new car flawless paint, shiny and smooth. His colors always come in high gear, they push your eyes to look into the photo and stare!
His got band photos, model photos, pet photos and YES! ~ Ted photos!
This is one stream you don't want to miss, at least I don't."
