Dan Cook is a landscape and nature photographer from the UK who loves creating immersive and thoughtful content for editorials and comissions. 

 

The outdoors is where I have always found my inspiration. I love the challenges of confronting vast new landscapes and finding beauty in the familiar environments close to home.

I am thirty something these days and an accomplished outdoor photographer and content creator. I work on select comissions that tie in with my passions of promoting the great outdoors and getting under the surface of our landscapes. I also work with select brands that have a genuine message and are contributing positively to the world and can enhance their presence through captivating stories.

I hope my landscape and natural world photography causes people to think. To reveal something new about a familiar place or to reveal a new place to visit. There is no better feeling than when people really connect with my photography. It's not a feeling of self satisfaction but of a shared way of seeing our world.

Despite the photo opposite suggesting otherwise I am a professional and passionate photographer. If you'd like to work together or support my work and purchase prints then don't hesitate to get in touch.
