First Post and introduction~

in Photography Loverslast year (edited)

Hello New friends! My name is Dan Hawk and I'm excited to finally be getting started here. Thanks to my friends @caseygrimley @intrepidphotos and @tristan.todd for all the help with getting things set up!

Badlands Approach.jpg

I live in Portland Oregon with my wife, 3 teenager (actually one is off at college) and 2 dogs. I'm a commercial freelance photographer and I'm the PNW Tech rep for Sony Alpha cameras.

Here in Northern Oregon it's green and verdant, but I love the desert so I share a lot of imagery from arid places. That said, I'm also a big fan of the coastal areas here in Oregon and spend a pretty good amount of time chasing epic light and wild conditions.

I'm really looking forward to connecting, talking art with you and being part of the community!

Hey Dan, glad to see you on here! Love those images as well. Was the seascape taken on the Oregon coast?

It sure was! it's near Neakhanie Mountain. Just a little North of Manzanita.

Hey Dan, welcome to Give! Can't wait to see more of your photography!

Thank you so much Casey! Looking forward to it!

Welcome, @tristan.todd doing some great work introducing more photographers to the ecosystem, nice!

I'm gonna give @intrepidphotos the majority of the credit for this one! Haha

Thank you so much! Good dude indeed

Epic to see you here mate. A long form format where you can share a bit more deeply than over on the blue bird.

Yup, liking the longer format for sure. I used to blog quite a bit on my website It's kinda buried, but this has kinda got me motivated to dig in a little bit.

Welcome to Hive! Have fun!

Welcome to the family! Your photos of the Neakhanie Mountain area are spectacular.

Lots of helpful folks around here; don't be afraid to post questions publicly or DM.

People use Discord a lot too.
