G Dan Mitchell
G Dan Mitchell is a California photographer and visual opportunist whose subjects include the Pacific coast, redwood forests, central California oak/grasslands, the Sierra Nevada, California deserts, urban landscapes, night photography, street photography, and more.
"I have photographed since childhood when my father introduced me to cameras and the darkroom, and I was fascinated in my youth by the work of the west coast landscape photographers such as Weston and Adams. Although my academic and professional life turned towards music, I continue to make photographs, primarily focusing on the natural landscape, but also exploring a wide range of other subjects."
"Nearly a decade ago I began to make night photographs, entranced by the quiet and meditative nature of the work and by the ability to create photographs of things that cannot be seen with my own eyes - faint light in near darkness, transient subjects that move during long exposures, and the magical nocturnal transformation of ordinary things into things of mystery and beauty."
Mitchell is an award-winning published photographer who exhibits, sells prints, licenses photographs, and writes on photographic subjects. His photography has been exhibited at The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite Valley, the annual Yosemite Renaissance exhibition, the Harvey Milk Photo Center, San Francisco ArtSpan Open Studios, The Stellar Gallery, and other locations including public and private facilities in Death Valley National Park, the Carmel area, San Francisco, Chicago, and in Europe and Australia. His photographs appear in books and magazines, and he present talks on photographic subjects. His book, California’s Fall Color: A Photographer’s Guide to Autumn in the Sierra, was published by Heyday Books in 2015.
G Dan Mitchell exhibits at Artspan Open Studios with Studio Nocturne SF, where he shows framed archival pigment prints along with unframed work in smaller sizes.
