I’m Dan Bailey, a professional outdoor, adventure and travel photographer and official FUJIFILM X-Photographer based in Anchorage, Alaska.

My work has been published by clients worldwide, including Fujifilm, Nikon, Fidelity Investments, General Dynamics, British Petroleum, Outside Magazine, Coleman, Discovery Channel Publications, National Geographic Adventure, The New York Times, Alaska Airlines and Patagonia. I have also written articles for Digital Photo Pro and Outdoor Photographer, I teach online photography courses at The Compelling Image, and was the Senior Contributor to The Photoletariat for two years.

My own passion for adventure usually places me right alongside my subjects, which allows me to share in their experiences firsthand as I shoot. In that way my photography has become a vehicle for a life of exploration and documenting expeditions, cultures and landscapes around the world.

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. If you’re an avid outdoor shooter of any level, bookmark or subscribe to the blog and then come back from time to time and see what’s new!

One more thing, I want this blog to be an enjoyable and useful resource, so don’t be afraid to leave a comment or contact me if you have a request for future topics that you’d like to see here. I welcome reader comment- let me know what you think!

    Just found your site. I’ve been using an X-T2 for a year and a half, my NIKONS got too heavy for my old arthritic hands and love it. As a former pilot and long time amateur photographer I love your blog.
