Seattle: Dane Gregory Meyer

Dane Gregory Meyer is a West Coast photographer based in the Seattle-Tacoma, WA area. He has been shooting commercially since 1988.

His work has focused on interiors, architecture and people. He has served many leading businesses, organisations, hospitals, banks, architects, designers, developers, contractors, artisans, artists, publications, and ad agencies. His work has often resulted in both regional and national awards for his clients.

Simplicity is a hallmark of both Dane’s work and his work methods. His naturalistic style eschews the fussy, the trendy, instead embracing a “less is better” philosophy that seeks to reveal story and depth.

He has been largely influenced by the greats—Ruth Bernhard, Brett Weston, Ansel Adams, and Imogene Cunningham. His business, DG Studio, holds a private collection of photographs by each of these artists. Dane has also studied with Ruth Bernhardt, Judy Dater and others.

Dane also shoots fine-arts images and is an active part of the local visual arts community. In 1992 he took an exhibit of Pacific Northwest fine arts photography to Vladivostok, Russia, and hosted an exchange exhibit in Tacoma. Vladivostok had been closed to both Russian and foreign visitors for many decades, and the exhibit was part of the celebration of its opening.
