Dana Clemons, was born and raised in Bartlett, where his family has resided for generations. His love of nature developed at an early age and photography has been his passion for many years. He spends much of his time photographing while hiking and skiing on Mt. Washington in the Presidential Range, and throughout the White Mountains. He primarily shoots fine grain transparency film, using medium format equipment, allowing for fine detailed images, even in large format. The final photograph best represents the scene and feeling at that moment. His work is strongly influenced by the work and techniques of Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell.
