About Dan Bailey

Hi! 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.

As a top rated blogger and author of a number of popular photography books and eBooks, my goal with this site is to provide information, insight and inspiration to other photographers in the hopes that I can help you further your own creativity, technique, confidence and knowledge about the world of outdoor photography.

Learn.  Be Inspired.  Expand Your Skills and Creativity.

In my Photography On The Brain course, you'll develop your own creative brain and explore a wide range of topics that challenge you to think about image making in a whole new way.

Drawing on my 25+ years of experience, these short, concise lessons are designed to inspire, get you thinking more deeply about aspects like creativity, approach, method, technique, composition and vision, and motivate you to try and apply these concepts to your own image making.






Then this course is for you!!! 

Let me help you become more proficient with your X Series focus system,

so that you can get the shots that you want.

"Hi Dan- Your auto focus course is brilliant. It takes a single aspect of photography, albeit an important one, and provides a detailed understanding of how it works, and how best to work it. You are a great teacher, providing solid examples, good real, everyday down-to-earth advice and tips"
