Dan Ferrin has been an avid photographer since his parents gave him a Brownie camera at the age of eight. By the time he was fourteen, he had upgraded to a 35mm Rangefinder, the Kodak Retinette 1A, and was an official sports and event photographer for his high school newspaper and yearbook. Dan was drafted to serve as a helicopter crew chief and doorgunner Vietnam in 1967. He recalls, 'I probably spent more time shooting photos than I did my weapons, and by the time I finished my service in the Army, I was the Battalion photographer for my unit in Hanau, Germany.'
After returning to civilian life, Dan earned a degree in Commercial Photography from Colorado Mountain College, a highly regarded school that also graduated several legendary National Geographic photographers.
Since that time, he has photographed everything from stock car races to bluegrass bands to professional tennis tournaments, as well as occasional weddings and senior portraits. Professionally, his primary emphasis remained with commercial photography, however, where he specialized in product and lifestyle shots for catalogues and print advertising. Dan was one of the pioneers in the transition from conventional to digital technology in both publishing and in photography, including publishing periodicals for Rand McNally and Better Homes and Gardens that were featured in MacUser magazine as among the first printed magazines using an entirely digital pre-press workflow.
A few years before retirement, Dan developed an interest in nature photography, which now occupies all of his time. In his own words, Dan says, 'For many years, I looked forward to having the freedom and flexibility of photographing what I loved best. Since retiring, this is what I do. I hope you enjoy.'
