Dan Evans’ life shows us what it means to be a true Alaskan outdoorsman. He has thrived in Sitka for almost 40 years and has explored Alaskan wilderness through and through. With his camera at hand, Dan has reached deep into the forests of Alaska, and high atop the peaks of its mountains.
He is subtle, yet bold, and he has used this complex style to tell the stories of great adventures: the summiting of Denali, skiing across the Juneau Ice Fields and hiking the wildest geography of the Last Frontier. He has climbed Mount Rainier and The Grand Teton, he has bicycled from Alaska to New York, and most recently, the first to hike the length of Baranof Island in SE Alaska.
His photographs have appeared in The New York Times, Outside, National Geographic and National Fishermen as well as Alaska Geographic books and the Patagonia Inc. catalog. He recently worked in collaboration with National Geographic TV to photograph North American Bison in South Dakota and prior to that, when working for the television program “Wild Things”, he traveled the Alaskan and Canadian Arctic photographing polar bears, walrus, and caribou. He has also captured underwater video photography of Stellar sea lions, humpback whales, and beluga whales.
