Dan Burkholder &
Jill Skupin Burkholder
Dan Burkholder has a long history of looking beyond the photographic horizon to see, explore, teach and exhibit the next great thing in imaging.
His 1994 book Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing blended classic and digital methods and became a standard resource in the fine-art photography community. His book, iPhone Artistry (Pixiq Press, 2012), is the universe’s most comprehensive and fun how-to book for iPhone photographers. His poignant monograph, The Color of Loss (University of Texas Press, 2008), intimately documented the flooded interiors of post-Katrina New Orleans and was the first coffee table book shot entirely with HDR (High Dynamic Range) methods.
Dan also invented several hand coated printing processes, including his Platinum/Palladium over Gold Leaf printing that includes multiple precious metals on delicate, translucent vellum.
Dan earned his B.A. and Master’s degrees in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. His platinum/palladium and inkjet prints are included in private and public collections internationally. Dan’s web site is www.DanBurkholder.com.
Jill Skupin Burkholder is a photographer and artist whose work includes handcrafted techniques such as encaustic techniques using beeswax and resin, and bromoil printing, an alternative photography process using brushes and lithography ink to create an image.
Her work is in private collections and the permanent collections. She regularly teaches at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and the International Center for Photography in New York. www.JillSkupin.com. Jill and Dan have led popular, fun-filled photography workshops to Cuba and love to combine their love for photography with traveling with friends.
