Welcome to the first post to my blog as I start this new chapter in life.

I'm Dan and for about 20 years I served in the Canadian Armed Forces. I've always had an interest in photography and enjoyed taking pictures but never thought it could be a job for me. It wasn't till I was in Afghanistan in 2003 that I saw what a photographer could really do. 

While I was there I met a photographer named Stephen Thorne and saw what photographs could do. It was his images of one of the worst moments in my life was shown to the world that I could see the story he trying to convey.

It wasn't till about two years ago that I made the choice to do something that I was passionate about .. photography.
