Born in the UK , Dan took a year out in Whistler, British Columbia after high-school which planted the seed for a mountain obsession. While his passion for mountain life took a backseat as he finished a degree in Aerospace Engineering in England, it wasn’t long before he returned to the mountains to start his photography business. Dan’s work has since been featured in over 100 publications worldwide and his commercial clients include major brands such as Apple, Nike, Oakley and Red Bull. Dan also has a passion for photography education and through his company Shutter Muse, has provided content for photography publications worldwide, as well as industry leaders like Canon.

As cliché as it may sound, if you had to describe Dan Carr‘s work in one word, that word would likely be ‘majestic.’ I choose this description because his photos tend to have a very sleek and put-together quality to them, and yet he manages to capture this without sacrificing the honesty and integrity of the moment. Essentially, Dan captures the best of both worlds, and puts a lot of other photographers to shame in the process.Alan Steadman – PetaPixel.com
