Dan Winters, (born October 21, 1962) is an American portrait photographer, illustrator, filmmaker and writer. Dan started his career as a photojournalist. He moved on to magazine assignments and an incredible body of personal work photographing all kinds of subject matter, including celebrity portraiture and scientific imagery. Dan is a master of light, but also a master of the authentic moment with a subject. Like all of the portrait photographer I admire, it really comes to to a mastery of technique and equipment so that one can connect with a subject and create a real moment within the context of a complex setup. There is much for me to learn about his lighting technique and I gain more experience, gear, and experience shooting portraits.
