Dan started making Photographs in High School. At the same time he also began doing Lighting Design and Set Design, for live stage performances. His many years as a Designer, have given him a unique perspective on light and composition within a frame. Being able to "see light" informs a unique perspective on composition, color, and brings a sense of theatricality to his photographic work.
He formally started LumiLux Photography in 2014, although he has been using the business name for many years. A life long resident of the Peninsula, and now a resident of San Carlos, he is very familiar with the Bay Area.
Photography has always been a passion, but now it has become a part time business. Current clients include: the City of San Carlos, Colliers International, Bianchini Market, and the San Carlos Chamber of Commerce, the City of Millbrae, Facebook Farmers Market.
Dan is also a musician, playing Mandolin in the band Black Mountain Radio, which plays a mix of Bluegrass, Country, and Americana.
