Is that all? Yes. For now.

About Dispatches Series

Dispatches, a production of Blurb’s Creative Evangelist Daniel Milnor, is an in-depth look at those living artistic lives. Each episode will feature photographs and audio conversations with artistic pioneers who have devoted their lives to the arts. From artists to authors, photographers to philosophers, Dispatches will reveal the faces and foundations of those who lead the creative way.

Dan Milnor

Daniel Milnor once worked as both a fragrance model and a hot tub installer but is better known as a reformed-journalist, photographer and writer who is now, once again, performing these duties in his role as Creative Evangelist for Blurb Inc., the world’s premiere indie publishing platform. He splits his time between Los Angeles and Santa Fe. He dreams of downsizing, writing something memorable and living somewhere in Latin America.

    Not being perfect! That’s huge for me to hear. I decided a yr ago not to shoot for money but to shoot for myself. Im currently working on my conservation portfolio. I worked as a bio field tech for Audubon this 2017 Shorebird nesting season. I’m slowly picking my favorites for a book on Florida shore birds and seabirds. I’m not tech savvy so fingers crossed on making a book thru blurb!
