Bio

Dan's mugshotDaniel H. Bennett was born in London in 1965 and lived in England until moving to the United States in 2000, settling in Northern Colorado.

His interest in vision and observation of the behavior of light has been life-long. On a trip to France as a young man his hosts called him “Monsieur Tête-en-l’air” (Mr. Head-in-the-air) due to his always watching for halos, rainbows, sun-dogs (parhelia), etc. He was particularly influenced by a book written in 1939 (published in English in 1954, Dover) by Professor M. Minnaert, called The Nature of Light and Colour in the Open Air. A Field Guide to Time-Varying Light Sources was conceived as a modern successor to that book, and adopts a similar approach, while revealing the secrets of modern light sources.

Daniel is married with four children, a motorcycle and two accordions.

I'm very excited to be the current featured artist over at Light Painting Photography, Jason Page's great nexus for all things light painting. Jason worked with me to create a great interview, sprinkled with many of my photos and links back to here. Thanks, Jason! It's humbling to see my rather unique photography being showcased to such a creative crowd of people, and I hope that it stimulates some new ideas and techniques. I'm looking forward to seeing where this new endeavor takes me.
