A Tribute to Dan and Tanya from Fred Kurtz
Simply Dan and Tanya
As I start my 10th year traveling with Dan and Tanya, I wanted to make a tribute book that contains nothing but images of the two of them with fellow explorers. I first met Dan and Tanya in August 2007 on a Mentor Series photo tour of Iceland and Norway. In 2008, Yellowstone in Winter was my first Natural Exposures Invitational Photo tour, and in February 2016, I completed my 12th Natural Exposures Invitational Photo tour – again in Yellowstone.
This book chronicles almost 10 years of Dan and Tanya and their journey creating Natural Exposures Invitational Photo Tours. It also shows the wonderful bond between the two of them and the impact they have on all the people they touch.
While I started out simply as a client, friendship soon followed, and now we are just like family. I tease them often that I am their adopted son even though I am older. Dan and Tanya are two of the nicest people I have ever met, and I will be forever grateful to them.
I will never forget the very first time I met Tanya. I arrived in Iceland for my first ever photography tour. I was a day late and exhausted. She saw me checking in at the hotel desk and said, “Are you Fred Kurtz? We are leaving for a shoot in five minutes.” The rest is history…
P.S. Dan and Tanya, you will receive a hard copy of the book direct from Blurb by April 11th.
