Dan Burkholder was one of the first photographic artists to embrace digital technology in the early 1990’s. The First Edition of his award-winning book, Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing, was published in 1995. This seminal work opened creative doors for photographers who wanted to combine the charm of the handmade print with the control and precision of digital methods.
Pioneering Fine Art High Dynamic Range imaging in 1996, Dan used HDR to capture the chaos of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The resulting book, The Color of Loss; an Intimate View of New Orleans after Katrina, was the first coffee table book shot entirely with HDR techniques.
Dan’s newest work is reminiscent of the Hudson River School of American landscape paintings and is captured and processed using an Apple iPhone. Combining new technologies with classic imagery and aesthetics is a recurrent theme in Dan’s artistic approach. His new book “iPhone Artistry” (Pixiq Press, 2012) is the funnest book around for creative iPhone photographers.
Dan earned his B.A. and Master’s Degrees from Brooks Institute of Photography and lives with his photographer-wife, Jill, and their dog and four cats at the base of the Catskill Mountains in Palenville, New York.
And finally, he can’t wait to see what happens next in the world of photography. Dan’s web site is www.DanBurkholder.com.
