Bio: Self-taught on an array of dog-eared film and later digital cameras, Dan’s unashamedly unglamorous and offbeat style combines in a broad and eclectic body of work, that has featured in exhibitions in the UK, New Zealand, and New York. He is regularly published online and in hard print, commissioned by commercial entities and private clients.

Now living in New Zealand, an insatiable curiosity got the better of him long ago, at 17 he visited Mexico City, an experience that set him on course to ‘specialize in ill-planned and underfunded excursions into the lesser known’ for the best part of two decades, Myanmar, Taiwan, Honduras, and Vanuatu to mention but a few always with camera in hand. To this day travel remains a deep passion and photography a complimentary obsession.
