About DAN ZUKOWSKI
Now working as an environmental writer and nature photographer, I came to enjoy and explore the outdoors at an early age.
My interest in photography started as an adolescent when my parents gave me a 35mm rangefinder camera. I used it to photograph travels, hikes and nature. When I took up photography seriously ten years ago, I studied with many masters including the renowned Art Wolfe, Canon Explorers of Light Jennifer Wu and Lewis Kemper, Tony Sweet and Jim Zuckerman.
My career as a writer began in the 1980s as an automotive journalist. Since then, my byline has appeared in major daily newspapers and magazines, and today I am an environmental writer for EnviroNews, EcoWatch and Invironment.
My photography appears in editorial and commercial use, as well as juried gallery shows and exhibits. I am proud to be included in the prestigious 2017 Maine Photography Show. Previous shows have included "The heART of Photography" exhibit sponsored by the Maine Professional Photographers Association, as well as the 1650 Gallery and Sturt Haaga Gallery, both in Los Angeles.
A Telly Award-winning video producer, scriptwriter and video editor, I also enjoyed an extensive creative career in marketing and public relations, heading major brand-name automotive accounts.
Originally from New York City, I lived in Southern California for 25 years before relocating to Maine in 2015. I've been traveling since I was old enough to get on the subway and I've never stopped.
