Dan is a professional photographer living in St. Louis and photographing all over the west. One of his special interests is photographing the cowboy life. He has photographed working cowboys on ranches in Colorado, Kansas and Texas. Some of these ranches have been photographed several times to take advantage of changing ranch life activities and changing weather. Dan recommends approaching ranchers with copies of his work and providing copies back to the ranch owner or manager of each of the cowboys. These have been well received and led to return visits. He notes that it is important to respect the cowboy’s privacy as well as their way of life. And to approach each project slowly getting to know the cowboys as people before picking up a camera.
In the second half of the show, Dan and I discuss Dan’s career with the St. Louis Art Museum and his success in getting his images hung in galleries in Missouri, Wyoming and Florida. He uses metal prints almost exclusively and highly recommends Diversified Lab Services in St. Louis for metal prints. http://divlab.com/
