Dan Bailey has been a full time adventure, travel and location photographer since 1996. Before turning pro, he worked as a photo editor for a Boston stock agency, which gave him a solid understanding of how to communicate with art directors and produce the kind of stunning, high quality imagery that today’s highly visual world demands.
Dan strives to create dynamic imagery that shows the power and mystery of the greater scene with a style that can be defined as a cross between the raw immersion of first person photojournalism and the focused creativity of high-end commercial photography. His goal is to capture the intensity, the personalities and the relationships of my subjects as they interact with the world, whether they’re testing the limits of their skills and endurance, working in various environments or simply living their lives off the beaten path.
Dan has diverse experience, a tremendous level of energy and a true dedication to my craft, and works hard to create the most dynamic images possible. He loves experimenting to find the right vantage point, gear or creative solution to create his imagery, and given the chance, he often hunkers down in the dirt or snow, climbs to a location above the scene, or runs a few miles down the trail with a pack full of camera gear. In short, there is almost no limit to how far Dan Bailey will go to get “The Shot.”
Throughout the past fifteen years, Dan has worked with many top clients, licensing his work through ten different stock agencies. In addition to all this, Dan teaches photography workshops through Alaska Photo Treks, as well as teaching online and interactively through The Compelling Image. Dan Bailey is the author of a number of photography eBooks and two print books that will be published in 2015.
A Colorado native, Dan Bailey currently lives in Anchorage, Alaska, where he enjoys deep powder, long arduous treks in the mountains and good microbrews. He also flies a little yellow taildragger and has an endless fascination for guitars - especially Fender Stratocasters.
