Bio In Climbing Magazine Issue: 278

Excerpt taken from Climbing Magazine:

A resident of Louisville Kentucky, the freelance photographer Dan Lubbers ( discovered climbing eight years ago, after a visit to the local gym. A creative mind and a love of the arts have ushered Lubbers, 29, into photojournalism, landing him jobs shooting everyone from Jason Kehl, to the Icelandic band L.B.H. Krew, to fashion models. "Photography/videography is always something I've created to some degree," Lubbers says "I started to approach it as a career path in the past year and a half." His evocative Perspective portrait of the New Mexico shredder Timy Fairfield (p.90), shirtless, was taken after five weeks in a van with Fairfield as part of the La Sportiva Solutions tour in 2007. The dark, high-contrast shot aptly captures Fairfield's intense personality. "We shot it in a field at night in the Red River Gorge," recalls Lubbers. "It took maybe 45 minutes-it was mid-November and cold!" Lubbers' work has appeared in Climbing, Iceland Airwaves, and Urban Climber Magazines.

I am proud to say that the video I assisted on and shot the photographs for "Spraylords" by Victory Productions was the winner of the Humor category.

I am also excited that Timy Fairfield's video "Do What You Like" by Nathan Bancroft won the category for Inspiration.

Laying low with my brain...

Apparently I suffered a concussion to my brain stem mid-July. Needless to say, I haven't really been able to shoot much or do anything else for that matter.
I'm fascinated with anatomy and my neurologist suggested that I get an MRI of my brain.
Figured I would take some images and create an animation with them in photoshop to amuse myself and get over my boredom of cabin fever of resting for the past month and a half.

*I put these on here only for aesthetic purposes - not medical diagnosis - so enjoi*
