About the Artist

Dana Echols

My life as a photographer has become an exploration of the intimacy of nature; focusing on design, lines, texture and color.  As a result, my photographs are all totally in focus and full of detail, revealing the personality of the place in the moment.  Rarely will I be found shooting photographs on a windy day or in any situation that doesn't allow me to set up my tripod and truly, completely focus.  One little gust or a single flutter means that I will lose the detail and crispness that I seek.

My classic training by experts in photography and darkroom techniques, served me well as I migrated to the use of a digital camera in the mid 2000's.  Today I work only with digital cameras that enable me to create images 24"x36" or larger while maintaining vivid color and detail.  I create my own archival prints using the Canon Lucia EX  Ink Set on art papers and canvas.  

Artist Statement

"To me, each photograph I take is a small jewel, a precious discovery that is to be experienced in great detail.  I hope that my images provide you with the opportunity to connect with nature in a profound moment of stillness."
