Dan is a mostly-retired bioengineering scientist and a long-time photographer. He is a dual USA and Swiss citizen, living in Canton Basel since 2000. He used to take lots of full-frame 35 mm film photos but got tired of the film/print process and slacked off. In 2002, digital cameras got him clicking again. Dan has had a couple of shows, but since ca. 2013 has generally just posted to Flickr. Why? A nice level of Flickr feedback keeps him motivated. As of mid-June 2018, his ca. 1500 photos on Flickr have received over a million views. He does not pursue views. It just seems to happen. His most-clicke Flickr photo has received over 52,000 views.
Currently, Dan mostly photographs near home in northwest Switzerland, and in nearby parts of France (e.g. Alsace) and Germany (e.g. Black Forest). Subjects: anything that might make a beautiful, evocative, funny or intriguing image. One theme: everyday things from a special POV or that tell a little story. He strives for good composition. For internet use or small prints (e.g. A4 = 220x297 mm) Dan sees full-frame 35 mm cameras as overkill. He uses APS-C format cameras and even little super-zoom bridge cameras. The latter can provide images having amazingly sharp details.
