I’m Dan Bailey, a 20+ year professional adventure and travel photographer based in Anchorage, Alaska. My work has been published by clients worldwide, including Fujifilm, Nikon, Fidelity Investments, Alaska Airlines, British Petroleum, Outside Magazine, Discovery Channel, National Geographic Adventure, The New York Times, and Patagonia.
My goal with this blog is to provide information, insight and inspiration to other photographers in the hopes that I can help them further their own creativity, technique and knowledge about the world of outdoor photography.
