I’m Daniel Dunn, and 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, and what am I creating? One 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 experience nature. I want kids to ask questions like “Where is that?”, “Can we go to Timbuktu, Mom?”, and “What is that little girl doing?” I want to remind people of their past travels, of favorite places, or of their wonder and lust about places they’ve never been. I want people to look at my photos and dream about places they haven’t been to. That way, at least they can find joy in knowing someone — me — who has been there and who has done that, to quote a popular phrase. I enjoy people to be able to personalize places through me.
I also simply enjoy the process of: visiting new places and trying new things, being a little bit scared sometimes, and returning to the comfort of familiar places and coming home. Home can be so many places from your past lives. It’s always a joy to come home.
