Dan Jahn

dan_jahnI was born in Sri Lanka to Peace Corps parents, and from that beginning I have lived in a number of countries and continue to travel and explore other cultures as often as possible. I am never happier than in some new place, eating food I have never had, surrounded by people whose language I don’t speak, trying to communicate with a smile and a camera.

I studied religion, culture and politics as an undergraduate and in graduate school both in the United States and in the UK, worked at The White House and then as a visual communications consultant for ten years, and found my passion for photography one foggy morning on a mountaintop in Bhutan.

Now, I am lucky enough to be an award-winning, Denver-based photographer working locally and globally, in commercial, assignment, editorial, fashion and stock photography. I strive to consistently produce the highest quality still and motion images for advertising and commercial clients as well as fine art photography collectors. As a private pilot with access to a small plane, I am also available for shoots on location throughout the Rocky Mountain area on very short notice. Or if you just want to do some loops and barrel rolls over a lake in an antique bi-plane, I am your guy!

I am also the owner of photospace , the premier workspace and rental equipment source for professional photography in Colorado. The studio is a perfect place to shoot: 2300 sq ft (1900 sq ft shooting space) centrally located close to downtown in Denver’s Santa Fe Art District. photospace is comfortable, clean, and spacious, with all the latest photographic technology available: cyc wall, green screen, medium format digital capture, video gear and more.

Comments to “Dan Jahn”

  1. I had a great time in class yesterday with Dan! He was very knowledgeable and I learned lots. I cannot wait for take the composition in the field course in April.

  2. It was very informative and I feel like I have a lot to practice! Thank you!

  3. Mia thoroughly enjoyed the workshop … she felt like she learned so many helpful, informative, and personalized tips from Dan and she was eager to start implementing them as soon as she got home! She was definitely inspired by Dan’s amazing stories of world travels and unique photoshoots! Thank you for furthering Mia’s love for the art of photography!

  4. The class went wonderful with Dan and was extremely informative for both Lucy and I.

    Learned lots of little tips and tricks that we watched transform our photos right before our eyes, while we were still in the field! Loved it.

  5. Good class for beginners on what all the functions of your camera are. Everyone brought in their own camera and the instructor picked out the most complex one and described what all the buttons/functions did. Gave great examples of photos he has taken to go with descriptions on how a photo changes with each of the settings.

  6. “Great experience with Dan, he knows his stuff!”


  7. “He was a very good teacher, I learned a lot about photography.”


  8. I just bought this camera:

    Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 16.2MP Digital Camera with 3-Inch LCD. Here is a link to the amazon site that I bought it from

    Do you have any personalized classes or would you recommend any classes for this camera?
