Depth of Field: Dan Carr

Dan Carr

Dan Carr

I had the pleasure of working with Dan Carr online many years ago when we wrote for the same photo website. He seemed like a great guy to know then and after this interview I can say for sure he is.  Dan is a Brit who has transplanted himself to Canada. He shoots a wide variety of subjects so it’s difficult to peg him into one genre. But he is best known for his adventure and ski photography.

Dan also operates a photography educational site called Shutter Muse where he writes about everything from the business aspects of the industry to location guides from around the world. Dan has many informative eBooks at Shutter Muse as well. In this episode we talk about how he started and his journey. Dan is full of great advice and stories that even the newest photographer will find helpful.

Note: Did you notice the audio quality of this episode? I am sure you can tell it is much better than any previous episode. That is because I have purchased new mics, a new mixer and am using a service that levels the sound so you don’t hear crazy levels between me and my guest. But all this comes with a cost. One way I hope to offset this cost is by offering premium or bonus material. Want to help keep Depth of Field on the air? Then take advantage of the bonus material offered below.

I am particularly excite to announce this Photo Trek around Ladakh and it’s 4 day add-on to Kashmir!

Ladakh, India was closed off to the public for years. During that time the Ladakhi culture and its Tibetan influences were kept isolated and pure. These days anyone can visit Ladakh, but only a few know where to find that bit of culture that has stayed authentic. It has been said by some that Ladakh is more Tibetan than Tibet. Join photographers Matt Brandon & Piet Van den Eynde as they lead you on a photographic trek across this isolated region of India known for its monks, monasteries and mountains. Join us for the magic that is Ladakh.

Depth of Field: Michael Clark

A few weeks back Michael Clark and I got into a fight. It was a knock-down-drag-out kind of fight and the internet won all,  but the last round. Michael is patient man that allowed me to keep calling his home until we finally had decent line. Thank you Michael.

Not only is he a patient man, Michael Clark is an internationally published outdoor photographer specializing in adventure sports, travel, and landscape photography. His editorial and corporate clients include National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Outside, Men’s Journal, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photo Pro, pause…take a breath… Climbing, Nike, Nikon, Adobe, Patagonia, Pfizer and DuPont to name just a few. He has risked life and limb on a variety of assignments to bring back stunning images of rock climbers, mountaineers, kayakers, and mountain bikers pushing their sports to the limit in remote locations around the world. Michael and I spoke about his work as an adventurer photographer, how he got his start, and how he continues to be one of the most sought after photographers in the business.

We also talk at some length about his newsletter and how it has been a huge help at marketing himself and his work. After listening you might want to subscribe, you can find the link HERE. His blog (well worth the read!) is HERE and his portfolio can be found HERE. I hope you enjoy this interview.
