Hey, I'm Dan. I'm a commercial and editorial photographer from Seattle, Washington, specializing in outdoor adventure lifestyle, product, and portrait photography. 

I create images to inspire folks to get outside, seek adventure, and connect with wild places. Capturing real moments on real misadventures got me hooked. Now I bring the studio on location and the outdoors into the studio, treating the production process as a team sport and thriving when problem-solving in creative collaboration.

My work has been featured by REI, Outside Magazine, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, The Wall Street Journal, Therm-a-Rest, MSR, evo, Fly Fisherman Magazine, The Flyfish Journal, and the Fly Fishing Film Tour, among others.

In my free time, I enjoy playing with light, backcountry skiing, river floating, and backpacking the Cascades.


I am the Studio Manager at evo's media studio. In my work, I have been most grateful for opportunities to collaborate with inspiring partners, teammates, and friends to realize creative visions and create gorgeous images.

I have previously been employed in photography at REI's media studio, Cascade DesignsSeattle Met Magazine, and Harper Studios

I have worked on videos with Waist Deep Media, and Rogel Media/Out There Films as a producer, cinematographer, sound recordist, and editor.

I studied Commercial Photography at Seattle Central Creative Academy. I also studied photography at the University of Washington Continuum College, where I am on the advisory board for the Certificate in Photography program.

I graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in International Relations and Global Business. I am a former management consultant and business intelligence developer.

I volunteer with Big City MountaineersWashington Trails Association, and Olympic National Park.
