Having spent the majority of his adult life photographing at night, Dan Freeman is best known for his nocturnal captures of a variety of scenes, both natural and man-made. This passion for shooting in the darkness has seen him travel to some incredible locations and gain qualified status with the BIPP. Dan’s nocturnal imagery has won awards and featured in a number of publications and exhibitions. The current project, focusing on small town nocturnal America, has attracted the attention of several major media outlets, including BBC News. Dan also teaches photography at his local college.
 
During his talk Dan will be sharing a selection of his nocturnal photography, discussing image creation and providing anecdotes regarding their conception. This will cover a variety of Dan’s nocturnal projects including work from the ‘Nightscapes’ and ‘Nocturnal America’ series.
 
“For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the night time and by photography. In my early twenties I found a way to marry these two interests and discovered my passion for nocturnal image capture - a passion that has become relentless. For me photographing at night is the ultimate escape; a tranquillity found during image capture that is unrivalled. The night time offers so many opportunities to be creative that I don’t think I could ever tire of working after sundown.”
