Dan Elster was born in Chicago, 1971. In his old life, he was the manager of his brother’s food distribution business on the west side of Chicago. A few years ago, Dan and his wife (Patty) took a leap of faith … they quit their jobs, sold their home and hit the road. Patty took a job as a travel nurse, while Dan pursued a dream career in wildlife photography. After a few years of nomadic living, they now call Ashland, Oregon home.
Dan Elster is a wildlife photographer based in Ashland, Oregon.
