DanWestergren2Dan Westergren, Director of Photography for National Geographic Travel, is based in Washington DC where he spends his days looking at pictures of some of the most beautiful places in the world. Since picking up a camera in the 8th grade he has been fascinated with photography and the way photographers create objects of beauty from the world at large. He has turned this fascination into a lifetime obsession of constantly photographing everything around him.

Dan’s been lucky to photograph for the pages of National Geographic Traveler amazing places like the summit of Mt. Blanc and the North Pole. But often his subjects are just the neighborhood dogs or his kids, who he will drag to the Potomac river and make them stand waist deep in the cold water waiting for the light to be “just right.” He is also an experienced teacher, having led workshops for National Geographic Expeditions in Santa Fe, Tuscany, Baja, Antarctica, the Arctic Ocean, Washington DC, and the Galapagos Islands.
