Dan Francis M.Photog, CPP, Coucilor
One of his earliest experiences as a photographer was when he was seven years old while he was visiting Yellowstone National Park and he had used his parents 35mm camera throughout the park. The sights he saw that day took him down the road of art.

He began his art in high school taking all eight classes of art that were offered. He learned the rules of color, mood, patience, and creative thinking. He brought his art into the digital world by graduating with honors in Graphic Design in 2003. After graduating from college, he worked at a photography studio for 6 years continuing his vision through the camera. Dan’s work has been seen around the world through his website and published work. He has owned his own business, located downtown Fargo since 2008. He specializes in Fine-Art Photography, Photo Restoration and is always looking to learn the way of everything photography.
