Hello. I am Daniel j Gregory.

These days I am busy being a fine-art photographer and photographic educator. I am so lucky to be living on magical and artisitc Whidbey Island just north of Seattle, Washington.

I am a big fan of the living a creative life and finding the best ways to further the creative process.  I am lucky enough to have the chance to blend my love of digital technologies with the analog darkroom. This blending gives me the opportunity to work in a variety of mediums, with my current focus being on palladium and platinum printing as well as wet-plate printing.

In addition to running my own studio, I am also a core faculty member of the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle. This year I am also presenting at both Photoshop World and Creative Live. You can also find me hosting my weekly podcast called The Perceptive Photographer which focuses on the challenges and day-to-day aspects of living as a photographer.  I also like to read and memorize random facts so I am also certified in both Adobe® Lightroom and Photoshop.


Movies I’ll watch more than twice: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Galaxy Quest, Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 (just kidding), Empire Strikes Back, Citizen Kane, Apocalypse Now, Inception, Dark Knight, MIB, Princess Bride

“A photographer succeeds when the photo is effective not when it is liked or disliked.”
