Like a lot of photographers out there, I’ve used a lot of social media platforms for promotion. Unfortunately we’ve got no control over those services and they could disappear at any time. I really think email marketing is making a comeback as more and more people start to realize this. Last year I set out to begin building my list and putting out regular updates. It’s far easier than I imagined and I wish I’d been doing it since day one.
Dan Carr was born in the UK and after high school he took a year out in Whistler, British Columbia—that adventure planted a seed. While his passion for mountain life took a backseat as he finished a degree in Aerospace Engineering in England, it wasn’t long before he returned to the mountains to start his photography business. Dan’s work has since been featured in over 60 publications worldwide and his commercial clients include major brands such as Nike, Oakley, and Red Bull. Dan also has a passion for photography education and through his company Shutter Muse, has provided content for photography publications worldwide, as well as industry leaders like Canon.
