Mark Wyner


I'm so excited to share photos from this session with Mark Wyner who is a UX/UI Designer, Orator, and Writer based in Portland. Mark and I met when I photographed him speaking on Artificial Intelligence at the WebVisions conference here in Portland in May.

The coolest part about meeting up with Mark for this session was that we spent the first half of our time together over a fantastic cup of iced coffee at Barista talking about real life, our families and the crazy stuff happening in our country lately. He has some enlightening and challenging things to say, particularly this artice which he published the day before we met.

The photos were taken as we walked through the Pearl District looking for interesting spots and continuing our conversations.

To those considering Dan for a session. He is a great photographer, with a great approach. I met Dan when he was shooting a conference where I was giving a talk. His photos of my lecture were amazing, so I hired him for a private session.
He is really friendly and approachable, and he made me comfortable during our shoot. Because he took the time to get to know me in advance, he captured the essence of my character. I loved this approach, and it yielded a nice collection of images to choose from for my professional profiles.
If you need someone to help you tell your story through images, I highly recommend Dan for the task. He’s a solid choice.

Elowah Falls


My Brother-in-law Dan and his wife Beth are in town this week and we thought we'd get out and see some waterfalls. You can't really come here and not got see them. Elowah fall is one of my favorites and I just had to take them there. This is also my first landscape photo with the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8. This lens is a beast and just does some really cool stuff you can't do with a narrower lens. This is a pano, merged from 4 images.
