Dan Patch has been taking photographs for over three decades. The natural world is his primary focus and source for images, not only for the unexpected and ever changing light, but also for the “art” that he sees and finds in nature.
Other artistic pursuits vie for Dan’s attention; he is a master jeweler and an accomplished musician and composer, but photography is his muse. He learned photography at Bellevue College in Washington State and over the years has refined those skills in his travels throughout the world.
Dan captures his images using digital cameras and prints his photographs on museum quality acid free substrates, including Arches Rag cotton paper, Cotton Canvas, Metallic or Lustre photo papers.
His travels include South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Israel, Greece, Italy, Belize, Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Tahiti, Hawaii, Thailand, Canada, and throughout the United States.
Dan lives in the Gig Harbor area in Washington State and has exhibited his photographs at Artwalks in Seattle and Fremont as well as at Gallery 124 in Pioneer Square. Four of his images were selected to be used as public art in Seattle. His images have been included in international photography exhibitions and chosen to be in the National Geographic Stock Photography Collection, as well as the 'Editors Favorites'.
