I have lived on the Central Coast of California for the past 25 years. During that time, I have enjoyed a career teaching in the local High Schools. Several years ago I was asked to take my 4 year-old god-son to the swimming pool for the afternoon, with the explicit instructions that if he went off the diving board for the first time I was to get a picture of it.

He went off the board and I tried to get his picture. I didn't know about shutter delay, and so I got a beautiful picture of a splash instead of a little boy in the air.
My frustration with this result led me to a camera store where I puchased my first DSLR. Since this was a fairly expensive camera, I decided that I needed to learn how to use it - and my love of photography was born. Since then I have taken a variety of workshops, some through the Unniversity of California, Santa Cruz Extension Program, some with private instructors and, in the fall of 2009, I graduated from the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Mt.
My greatest area of interest in photography is wildlife followed closely by sports/action. I love the surprises the the animals present to us and the often unexpected result that comes while shooting an athlete.

Guestbook for Dan Tracy Photography

Dan, the Kenya images are outstanding. I really like the bird images, a lot of birds you do not see here. Great job, keep up the good work.
6.Terry McCafferty(non-registered)
Dan, great images of the "Sport of Kings". I am impressed, keep up the good work
5.Lara(non-registered)
Your photos are amazing!
4.Gayleen Myer(non-registered)
Today at the Corralitos art display I saw your barn photo with the majestic Tetons in the background. It really grabbed me, and I had to find it on your website so I could see it again! Of course my hunt brought me other rewards, as you have so many great shots. Thanks for the beautiful artistry.
3.Jack Kirchert(non-registered)
Dan, I met you and your two buddies at the El Capitan Picnic area on Mon 20, 2012. I hope you guys got some good shots during the week. I heard Horsetail Falls was flowing better on Wednesday.
