Daniel Anderson is a photographer whose ongoing personal work is primarily dedicated to the landscape in its many forms. For years he used an 8 x 10 view camera to create black and white images of exquisite artistry and sensitivity. Over a decade ago he began the transition to high resolution digital cameras and has added color prints to his ongoing body of work in black and white.
He has photographed widely in Wisconsin’s Door County, the American west, England, Scotland, Iceland, Ireland, Greece, Italy and most recently in Antarctica. His work is primarily concerned with the natural scene and his camera has captured both the high drama of storms and vast panoramas as well as the delicacy of intimate details. His work also includes a series of images of Cathedrals and Abbeys, Door County barn interiors, Greek architecture and a multi year project of a single Door County farm.
His work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, both in numerous one-man exhibitions and group shows. His work is included in many public and private collections. He currently has gallery representation in Chicago, Illinois, Ellison Bay and Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. Mr. Anderson has studied with Ansel Adams and other contemporary masters of photography. He has been an active teacher in photography, participating in many workshops throughout the United States. He has been the founder and director of the Door County Creative Photography Workshops in Wisconsin, and is on the staff of the Door County Peninsula Art School. He is also a consultant to several photographic paper companies.

I want to thank you (personally) for your great care, support and help before and during this trip. Your extra effort on all the Covid details. You went beyond what I believe most tour people would do and that speaks loudly about the kind of person that you are as an individual . The logistics of the trip were neat and flawless, the hotels beyond expectations and the food was exceptional . The number of sites visited was well planned, the towns and ability to wander was excellent . The buses were fine, even the early morning ride was great .
Your local guides are bright, kind, caring, and focused, who always had an eye out for our welfare, he is an asset to your company!
Again , many thanks , Dennis

Highlight: Giant’s Causeway at day break. Your local guide is very knowledgeable about many areas of Ireland (locations, history, geology, plants etc.). I would happily travel with them again and will be recommending to my friends.I had a great time on this trip. The other tour members were fabulous, and the photo leader was also a 10 out of 10.

I enjoyed all of the places we visited and welcomed the free time to explore on my own as well as the time spent with the group. The local guide was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Ireland & shared it in an interesting and informative way. I enjoy learning about the places I visit not just the taking photographs of them. Photo instructions was just right.

The Giant’s Causeway was the highlight for me. Guides did fantastic job of getting us there at sunrise, with nobody else around. We stayed for over 2 hours after the sun camp up, with still nobody else to get in our shots.Photo leader and local guide were both outstanding, picked great locations. They are always available for advice/information/tips/suggestions etc. Could not have done any better, friendly, flexible and knowledgeable.

Hard to say what the highlight of the trip was, the scenery was breathtaking and I enjoyed it all. It was interesting to see the leader’s workflow process. Also very helpful when I asked questions in the field. I’ve traveled with other photo tour compaies (and other general tour companies) and the information you provide before the trip – country info, suggested reading, culture etc. is far and away much better than any other. Your help with pre-planning was also great. Guides did a great job getting us to iconic spots. Only suggestion is to work in some scenic churches for variety.
— Meredith Harris
Guides were both wonderful. Local guide is such a talented young man and the driver was friendly and provided lots of information about Lofoten. Locations were wonderful, bedrooms a bit small but nice shared space. Wonderful trip even though the weather was cold, we had a good time and many fine moments for photography. Some of the beauty is actually due to the less pleasant weather.

This tour was so personal and so well organized, that it seemed like traveling with a group of seasoned-traveler friends. There was no perception of being herded from site to site as with so many tours, yet all the activities and opportunities one could possibly imagine appeared as if by magic. Jacque and Dan seemd to be just part of the group, but it was amazing to realize how much planning and effort went into each and every hour.

Dan was very helpful in photography and more, I learned a lot from the experience with him and from the other participants. Dan was also very gracious in responding to my many emails about photo equipment

Dan made himself available to everyone based on their own needs. I wanted to let you know what a fantastic time I had with Dan and your tour group. All of the information I received from Strabo prepared me well for the experience I have nothing but compliments for all the coordination you did to make everything flow smoothly.

Beautifully designed trip loved it, Dan was available for anyones questions and needs.
