Photographing the “Sierra Nevada Backcountry”
Our April 20th program is on photographing the “Sierra Nevada Backcountry” with accomplished photographer G Dan Mitchell.
Dan has photographed in the Sierra Nevada backcountry for may years, and the presentation on this subject is a bit more timely as people start to look forward to the spring and summer season.
G Dan Mitchell is a California photographer and visual opportunist whose subjects include the Pacific coast, the redwoods, central California oak/grasslands, the Sierra Nevada, California deserts, the American Southwest, wildlife, urban landscapes, night photography, travel photography, and street photography.
His photography has been exhibited at The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite Valley, the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, the annual Yosemite Renaissance exhibition, the Harvey Milk Photo Center, San Francisco ArtSpan Open Studios (with the night photography group Studio Nocturne SF), The Stellar Gallery, and other locations including public and private facilities in Death Valley National Park, the Carmel area, San Francisco, Chicago, and in Europe and Australia. His photographs appear in books and magazines, and he presents talks on photographic subjects. He was a Yosemite Renaissance artist-in-residence in Yosemite National Park in 2018, and a show featuring work from the residency was presented at Gallery Five in the spring and summer of that year. Dan is the author of California’s Fall Color: A Photographer’s Guide to Autumn in the Sierra (Heyday Books, Berkeley), 2015.
