Dan is proud to be a part of the BLACKRAPID Ambassador team. He was recently asked a few questions about his experience as a pro travel & landscape photographer. 


Age you took your first photo? What camera did you use? 

My family owned a photography studio when I was growing up, so it was something I have always been involved with. I can’t remember what age I first started using a camera. My mom is a professional photographer so I started playing with her cameras when I was really young on family road trips. She’s always shot Nikon, so I am sure it was some sort of older Nikon model.


When did you realize that you wanted to be a professional photographer? 

My love for photography came with my love for travel. I started traveling when I was 16, I was an exchange student in New Zealand where I was visiting some of the most amazing places in the world. I started taking a lot of photos with a SLR so I could share the experience and emotions of the place I was seeing with others. That inspired me to learn the art of photography. I spent years learning everything I possibly could about creating a better image from both photographers and painters and spent my life shooting basically non-stop. It was years after that when I finally felt I was ready to go pro.
