Theme/topic of the presentation: The Art of Drone Photography

Daniel Anderson is a landscape photographer. As part of his tools Daniel uses drones to open up a new way of seeing and imagining the world that he explores. Like any new photographic tool, this new perspective of viewing the land from a drone is full of promise but demands fresh thinking and a new visualization of the entire concept of the landscape image from the start to the finished product.

The concepts we are all familiar with from composition to capture to printing need to be reconsidered when using a drone camera. In his presentation Daniel will review the subject of landscape photography in the light of what a drone can offer and will look at and discuss examples of these new and unique opportunities that accompany this newest method of photography. Daniel will also examine some special challenges and how to overcome them.

Daniel will briefly discuss the details of drone best practices but will primarily spend time examining the specific photographic ideas and opportunities for still images introduced by this new tool for creating landscape photographs.

Daniel Anderson’s Bio:

Daniel Anderson is a Door County Wisconsin photographer living in Ellison Bay. Daniel has photographed widely throughout the United States and Europe. He has taught many workshops since the 1980’s. He also leads photographic tours to many exciting locations in many parts of the world.

Daniel began his photographic career after studying with Ansel Adams by making finely crafted black and white prints with an 8 x 10 view camera. He has evolved into digital printing using high end digital equipment and technologies and now is able to produce both color and black and white prints to even higher standards than were possible in the film era. For the last 6 years Daniel has embraced drones as an important new tool in his photographic arsenal.

Daniel’s work also includes a series of landscape images from Antarctica, Door County, Chile, Greece, Greenland, Italy, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Spain and the Faroe Islands. He has also photographed a series of Cathedrals and Abbeys, Door County barn interiors and a multi year project of a single Door County farm. Daniel’s work has been widely exhibited throughout the U.S. and Europe and his images can be found in many public and private collections.

Daniel’s work may be found at Fine Line Designs Gallery in Sister Bay Wisconsin and in his Ellison Bay Studio by appointment.
