Hi! I'm Dana.
Since you're here I suppose you probably want to know a little bit about me. (Or you just clicked the 'about me' link on accident.)I'm 32 and live in New York City, arriving here after a long and winding path of cities and circumstance. I spent my youth living in Columbus, Ohio. I grew up living around the Ohio State campus. I remember being in awe of the local camera shop that set up inside of an old church. (Most of these pictures are taken with a camera I bought there years and years later.)I've been taking pictures since forever, but I first really got into the hobby while living in Alaska during the summers while working my way through college. (I have a degree in Philosophy, if you're curious.)I started out taking mostly pictures of landscapes up in Alaska, but when back in Columbus I got into photographing bands that I knew and liked.I've got some great shots from The Fest down in Florida, Berea Fest from Berea (duh), OH, and DIT Fest in Kent (also Ohio). I've kept shooting bands here in NY, and also moved on to dabbling in street and stage photography.I spent a couple years in Washington (State, not DC) between living in Alaska and Ohio, and moving to New York. While living in Seattle I managed a Boxing Gym, and took pictures of sparring and training. (Oh, yeah, and bands too. Sensing a theme here?)And in the short, condensed, elevator pitch, abridged, spark notes version of my life, that brings us up to now. I've been in NYC for five years. I’ve gone through the meat grinder of tech companies and now I’m working on further stretching my artistic muscles and exploring new things.
Here in the city I’m trying to include more people in my work, and exploring architecture and cityscape.This is where you can see the results!
