The difference between commitment and technique - Seth Godin's Blog
We spend way too much time teaching people technique. Teaching people to be good at flute, or C++ or soccer. It's a waste because the fact is, most people can learn to be good at something, if they only choose...

Story
Tagline
Living in the tension of business and creativity.
Introduction

All current projects can be found at GoBe Collective and danesanders.com.

A little while back, Photo District News named me one of the 30 most influential living photographers of the last decade. Of course, it was a ridiculous assertion. I'm just hoping that, by influence, those that voted meant empowering all of us to flourish in their calling as professional creatives. When it comes to the creativity world, that's what I care about most. 

To that end, I've authored two books for photographers - both published by Random House - as well as a bunch of other resources for photographers

I've taught at Brooks Institute, Westmont College, SXSW, PPE, WPPI, Imaging USA as well as events throughout North America, South America, Europe & Asia. 

My work has been featured in a number of books and publications including Rangefinder, Professional Photographer, Grace Ormonde & Design Aglow & Photojojo.

Thanks for checking in.
