Welcome to my photography home. Featured galleries are at the bottom of this page; for other galleries, use the all galleries button above.

My interest in photography as a hobby began in 2004. I enjoy portrait and candid street work, as well as macro photography, although my "small world" photos aren't quite the same insect and flower work you'll see in many other sites. I do some portrait, artifact and museum gallery work professionally, but I still love just getting out with the cameras and looking for good images.

Please recognize that these photographs are copyrighted and cannot be used for any purpose without permission. The exception, of course, is in specific event galleries where I have opened the photos to free download, in some cases with the use of a password. In those circumstances, my images may be downloaded and used as personal digital files or prints, as long as they are not sold or used in any commercial enterprise. Thank you.

By default I've become the official photographer of the East Tennessee Historical Society. I recorded the entire construction sequence for the new permanent gallery, Voices of the Land: The People of East Tennessee, and that series may be viewed here, as well as my images from the Grand Opening and past temporary exhibits.

Thanks for visiting.

Dan MacDonald
