Where to find Daniel teaching?

Silly Dog Studios isn't the only place to find me teaching or speaking. Here is a list of places to find me.

I will be speaking at the annual Northwest Camera Clubs convention this year. I have two sessions one on color management and the other on what is new in Adobe® Lightroom®. I hope to see you there, come by and say hi.

I am speaking on Thursday October 11, 2019 at the Skagit Valley Camera Club’s October meetings. I will be talking black and white photography. If you are member or are looking to join, please stop by the Village Pizza in Anacortes, Wa. You can get more information here.


Photographic Center Northwest

For the spring quarter I am teaching three classes: Introduction to Lightroom, Fine art digital printing and Advanced Color Topics.

Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) is an educational institution dedicated to facilitating creation, conversations, and experiences of significant photography. Through courses, exhibitions, lectures, and outreach projects, PCNW provides access to the photographic arts, to professional and amateur photographers, and to the public at large.

Contemporary Color

Contemporary color photography has grown to encompass traditional chromogenic printing, color transparency, digital inkjet and lightjet prints, as well as numerous alternative processes. This integrated course will cover color theory, the nuances of digital printing, and a new set of foundations in color photography while drawing on analog and digital traditions. Students should be prepared to spend 3–5 hours a week on assignments for this course.

Fine art digital printing

Learn how to produce high-quality fine art digital prints on PCNW’s Epson and Canon inkjet printers. Master a workflow, understand paper options, and develop critical color management skills that will ensure the best possible print quality. Learn how to read prints and understand which adjustments in Photoshop will help you achieve your vision. Develop the ability to create pristine digital prints from scanned analog originals or captures from your digital camera.
