Dan Cripe is an award winning photographer who's had a camera in his hands for much of his life.  Over time, he's immersed himself in many different photographic domains, from photojournalism to nature/wildlife to studio and fashion.  He's learned a great deal in his journey - perhaps most importantly to not take it so seriously and to have fun.  Embracing the Galen Rowell philosophy "f8 and be there" he prefers to travel light and loves to explore new imaging technology - his most used gear is currently his iPhone and GoPro.  He's sure he hasn't yet taken his best shot and he hopes it's a long time coming as the journey itself is what he enjoys most.
