I’m Dan Eitreim and I worked as a professional photographer running my own photo studio for over 20 years. I’ve never apprenticed or worked for any other photographers. Because of this, I’ve had to learn and develop my photography skills on my own.
My first attempts were dismal, to say the least…so I studied, practiced and developed my photo skills and along the way I not only learned how to put the “wow” into my photos, but I’ve also learned how to teach others to do the same!
To that end, I’ve compiled a 37 volume series of photo training lessons that I’ve titled: “On Target Photo Training”.
I’ve now started writing novels and have completed my first one: “The Photographer’s Apprentice”. I’m now at work on my second novel: “The Fortune Teller” and hope to have it finished soon.
I enjoy creating books and expect to be developing more!
