Photographer Dan Voellinger is Butterfield Garage’s Feature Artist for January

January 4, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

An Artist Talk will be First Friday January 3, at 6pm.
Dan Voellinger is becoming known in St. Augustine as the go to photographer for finding unexpected local scenes, both in black and white and color. His photographs exude a stillness and beauty that stops viewers in their tracks. The thoughtfulness behind each shot has a lifetime of experience behind it.
Dan was born into a world of photography. Many of his relatives worked for Eastman Kodak or Xerox, and photography was a popular discussion topic and activity growing up.
He began learning and experimenting with cameras and photography at a young age, and even made his own pinhole camera, which used polaroid film. Hand me down cameras were in abundance, as relatives traded up.
The experience of using film cameras through his early years has given him a greater understanding about planning and composing a shot. Dan has developed an eye for recognizing and composing the “money” shot before he even lifts the camera. His experienced eye, and questioning mind observes the world as he moves thru it, looking for the unique perspective of an iconic scene.
Only then does Dan pick up his camera, and with technical acumen take the photograph.
He has been working for the Navy for over thirty years and had the opportunity to travel the world, with his camera always in hand. Japan had been his base for most all of the thirty years. With the move to Florida a six years ago he’s had the opportunity to meet and continue to learn from many experienced photographers. He loves to learn new ways to produce images that people will treasure. Additionally he is a very active supporter and volunteer with the St Augustine Camera Club and St Augustine Art Association, and his work can be viewed every day at Butterfield Garage Art Gallery at 137 King Street, St Augustine.
