~ About the Photographer ~

Mexican-American photographer Dan Chavez’s passion for photography began when he first used his father's 35 mm camera as a teenager. Photography is his link to the creative process which has inspired and nurtured artists for centuries.

The amazing digital innovations revolutionizing the photographic arts in recent years have only served to heighten Chavez's passion for the art form. Modern digital photography, along with the basic principles of composition, color, and design afford today's photographers endless avenues for artistic expression. Chavez feels "each photograph is part of a process, the result of research, experimentation, persistence, luck, and accident." 

In 2002 Chavez founded FotoVentures and has been displaying and selling his work at Art Shows and Exhibitions in Southern Arizona for over 16 years. In 2015, seeking new markets for his work, Chavez started freelance writing with a focus on Hispanic, culture, customs, and traditions.  To review Chavez's articles please click HERE .

 

Chavez has traveled extensively scouting locations, gathering material, and taking photographs in Colonial Mexico, Cuba, South America, Europe, and the Middle East as well as in Southern California, and in Tucson's historic barrios in search of unique settings and topics for his projects.  Chavez's inspiration and subject matter are drawn from an interest in history and traditions.  His adventures have resulted in a varied and eclectic collection of images and articles. “People can look at the same subject matter, yet each person's experience is unique and their own. Hopefully, through my eyes and camera lens, my images and articles will allow individuals to experience the beauty of other places and other times.”  Visit Chavez's BLOG to see his most recent projects.

Chavez is active in community fundraising, donating his time and artwork to charitable causes including the Tucson Botanical Gardens, the TMC Auxiliary, Imago Dei Middle School, Toys-for-Tots, and Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.

 

Chavez and FotoVentures wish to extend a special note of thanks to Ziemba Photographic-Arts and Jones Photo in Tucson, AZ, whose technical guidance, mentorship and patience have been invaluable. And, “to my wife and compass, whose support and critical eye help to guide me.”
