For more than thirty years Daniel Dempster has roamed the backroads and wild places of America seeking out and capturing the beauty of this wonderful land. Whether he is photographing the powerful thoroughbreds of Kentucky as they thunder down the stretch at Churchill Downs or roaming a stark and rugged Maine coastline searching for the perfect combination of composition and light, he is at home with a camera in his hand.

What started as a passionate hobby in 1980 soon blossomed into a full-time career. In 1988 Daniel had four images featured in the Kentucky Derby Museum. Work with the horse racing industry soon followed and in 1990 he was asked to be official photographer for the Kentucky Derby Festival. He held that position for twelve years winning several gold awards for his photography from the International Festivals Association.

In 1999 Daniel was contracted by Voyageur Press Publishing to photograph the lighthouses of the Great Lakes for a coffee-table book on the subject. On the completion of the Great Lakes project the publisher immediately asked him to photograph a second book featuring the lighthouses of the South. Both books have been extremely successful and have garnered many rave reviews including a 2005 Ben Franklin Award for best coffee-table / large format book for �Lighthouses of the South�. Throughout the 1990's and 2000�s in addition to doing corporate work Daniel was also compiling a large stock image library covering myriads of subjects. As a result, his work is regularly published internationally in a large variety of publications, books, puzzles, calendars and advertisements. In 2005 Daniel was contacted by publisher Steve Smith to be the primary photographer for a set of four coffee-table books covering the beauty and tradition of the world�s best wing shooting lodges and the elite hunters who typify the sport. This project allowed Daniel to travel to many locations both domestic and foreign and even garnered Daniel an appearance on the television show 'World of Beretta'.

Daniel enjoys helping others improve their photographic skills and this makes him a popular workshop and tour leader. Over the years he has taught workshops and led tours across the United States for Natures Light, Natural Impressions and Great American Photography Workshops photographic tour companies.

Daniel makes his home in the rolling hills of southern Indiana with his wife Denise.
