Event Details

Spend a special evening with Dan Westergren as he discusses how he chooses images for the iconic National Geographic Traveler magazine. He will describe why he loves these particular images and the photographic thinking behind them. In addition he will show a short selection of his images from the North Pole, his personal favorite place!

 

ASPP DC South presents an ''inside" look at National Geographic Photographer Dan Westergren.  See how Dan translates the ordinary and everyday into beautiful imagery, and follow him around the world from the Galapagos  Island to the North Pole. Hear Dan discuss his creative process with documentarian Larry Levin and have an opportunity to ask questions. Whether you are a photographer, photo editor, or simply just love beautiful imagery, Dan's talk will be enlightening, fun, and fascinating.

 

Dan Westergren, Director of Photography for National Geographic Traveler, is based in Washington DC where he spends his days looking at pictures of some of the most beautiful places in the world. Since picking up a camera in the 8th grade he has been fascinated with photography and the way photographers create objects of beauty from the world at large. He has turned this fascination into a lifetime obsession of constantly photographing everything around him. He's been lucky to photograph for the pages of National Geographic Traveler amazing places like the summit of Mt. Blanc and the North Pole. But often his subjects are just the neighborhood dogs or his kids, who he will drag  to the Potomac river and make them stand waist deep in the cold water waiting for the light to be "just right."  He is also an experienced teacher, having led workshops for National Geographic Expeditions  in Santa Fe, Tuscany, Baja, Antarctica, the Arctic Ocean, Washington DC, and the Galapagos Islands.
