About The Author

I’m Daniel Dunn, I’ve lived in Breckenridge for over 12 years and love playing outside. After going to film school and starting my own successful video production business, I realized that I’m most interested in creating awesome still images, and working with much smaller crews than the typical video shoot requires. I also hate editing! Why do I take pictures, what am I trying to do, what am I creating? One of the reasons is that I would like to raise awareness of the places and things in my photographs. I want to inspire people to go out and do. I want kids to ask questions like “Where is that?”, “Can we go to Timbuktu, Mom?”, “What is that little girl doing?”. I want to remind people of their past travels, of favorite places, or wonder and lust after places they’ve never been. I want people to look at my photos and dream about places they haven't been to, and at least they can take joy in knowing someone, me, who has been there, who has done that, to quote a popular phrase. I enjoy for them to be able to personalize it through me. And I also just enjoy the process of visiting new places and trying new things, of being a little bit scared sometimes, and the comfort in coming back to familiar places, and of coming home. Home can be so many places from your past lives. It’s always a joy to come home.
