Dan and his wife, Brooke
Dan has always been interested in photography but never really took the leap into it until early in 2006. About a month before taking a trip to New Jersey and New York he bought a decent point-and-shoot digital camera, headed out to the park to get familiar with it and became instantly hooked.
It wasn’t long after he exhausted the limitation of the point-and-shoot camera that Dan decided to step up to a dSLR and bought the Canon Digital Rebel XTi. Equipped with only the kit lens (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6) he quickly found that photography would be something he’d soon start to consider more than just a hobby.
Dan quickly surrounded himself with everything photography related he could get his hands on. Hitting the library for books, reading online for tips and advice and more importantly his camera and its manual. Granted it’s not a top of the line camera but you have to start somewhere in this very expensive hobby.
He recently started a website called Photo-52.com to help others learn about photography. While he does his best to provide inspiration to up and coming photographers, he knows that he still has a lot to learn himself.
