Dan began his professional career in 1978 as a freelance photographer. His freelance work evolved into a business which he calls Photo Restorations of Cincinnati, specializing in special event photography, theatrical and performing arts photography, museum quality copy work and table top photography, on location shoots for print and electronic publications, commissioned portraiture, biomedical and research photography, custom black and white lab services, restoration of old photographs, and sales of his B&W and color photographic prints.
