Photo vagabond Dan Milner is damn lucky. He’s been riding at a high level since 1985. Even more important, though, he’s been taking “all-time” shots of people riding in really cool places since 1993. A unique character indeed, Dan had a black and white photo published, which was taken on a self-timer. This proves that you don’t need the most expensive gear or latest technology to get the shot. In fact, you only need determination, a sense of creativity and a little luck. Oh, and a sense of adventure wouldn’t hurt either. So, if you are a bit like Dan and want to be a bike photographer yourself, here’s some advice to consider:
“I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE MYSELF KNOWN AS A PHOTOGRAPHER, PROPERLY. SO I MOVED TO CHAMONIX FOR A WINTER AND WENT OUT SHOOTING EVERY SINGLE DAY. IT JUST PUT ME ON THE MAP.”
About Dan Milner: Hates Insta filters, helicopters, and crybabies. Frostbite. Political unrest. Dealing with injuries three days from a cell signal. This is Dan Milner riding since 1985, published regularly since 1993. Getting the shot under his own power. Lit as nature intended. Example, inspiration, and tough as hell.
