Photograper Dan Winters – Road to Seeing (Voices That Matter)

Road to SeeingDan Winters is an exceptionally respected portrait photographer and is well known for his impeccable use of colour, light and depth in his evocative images.

After having studied photography in a Southern Californian College, Dan completed his formal education at the film School of Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany. Thereafter, he started out as a photo-journalist for a daily newspaper in southern California, where he won numerous regional awards. Later, he moved to New York to start a celebrated career and has attained more than one hundred awards since, including the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Magazine Photography.

Road to Seeing

Dan covers a broad range of subject matter and is widely recognized for his unusual celebrity portraiture, photo illustrations, his scientific photography, drawings and photo-journalistic stories. His previously published books include, Last Launch, Periodical Photographs and Dan Winters’s America: Icons and Ingenuity.

After capturing the final flights of the space shuttles Discovery, Endeavor, and Atlantis during his four visits to Kennedy, Dan realised he had enough imagery to compile a unique book. He had made more images than he could ever have printed by the publications he was representing and was aware that the opportunity would never present itself again. However, he wasn’t convinced he had enough strong images to create a volume worthy of its subject.

Road to Seeing

So instead, Dan’s recent book, covers his journey as a photographer as well the key moments, which informed and influenced the choices he made on his path. He decided to appeal to the broader photography audience, although speaking primarily to the student of photography.

Road to SeeingRoad to Seeing addresses such topics as the history of photography; creating a visual language; the portfolio; personal projects; street photography; his portraiture work; and the need for key characteristics such as awareness, curiosity, perseverance and reverence.

By relaying both personal experiences and a kind of philosophy on photography, Road to Seeing demonstrates how one photographer carved a path for himself and in so doing, helps equip the readers to forge their own.
