Dan Burkholder is known for looking over photography’s horizon to discover exciting new ways to capture
and express the photographic image. In the early 1990’s Dan wrote the groundbreaking book Making Digital
Negatives for Contact Printing, opening doors for legions of image-makers wishing to combine the
precision of digital imaging with the warmth and charm of the handmade print. After Hurricane Katrina
ravaged the Gulf Coast in 2005, Burkholder recorded the chaos of post-Katrina New Orleans in his poignant
monograph, The Color of Loss, the first coffee table book photographed entirely with HDR (High Dynamic
Range) techniques. And in 2012, Burkholder led the mobile photography revolution with his forward-looking
book iPhone Artistry.
Dan earned his BA and master’s degrees in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa
Barbara, California. His platinum/palladium and pigmented ink prints are included in private and public
