When Daniel Beers started making photographs he loved the technology and the rules of process that he had learned while studying classic landscape photography. He followed those rules: pre-visualization, hyper focus, and composition. He says however, As the years went by I started breaking the rules to distance himself from all that technology and just let the image happen. Spending less time setting up an image allowed him to be a lot more free and spontaneous. The images are looser, less about the technology and more about the moment.
Daniel Beers has exhibited across the United States and, interestingly, was the Master Printer for the Curtis Centennial Project, where he supervised the creation of Platinum, Silver, and Pigment prints from the original negative plates of the work of the famous 19th century photographer of America’s natives, Edward S. Curtis. Beers was also awarded a Blacklock Nature Sanctuary Fellowship, sponsored by well-known nature photographer Craig Blacklock.
