About the Photographer

His expertise in the areas of commercial, industrial and portraiture photography already firmly established, Don returned to the field that first inspired him to become a photographer, nature and landscape. Since that time over ten years ago, Don has shared with students his experience and the techniques used to capture some of the most beautiful settings and wildlife in the country.

Don’s passion for what he does, in both his teaching and his award-winning photography, has earned him national recognition. Numerous articles and interviews have appeared featuring Don and his work, on air and in such publications as Outdoor Photographer, Rangefinder, Studio Photography and Tamron's Viewfinder.

When not out in the field, Don is a faculty member teaching at Tri Community Photography and was recently invited to teach photography at the new REI Outdoor School established for the LA Area. This is in addition to his ongoing workshops, seminars, lectures and exhibitions.

With the increased resources offered by the Internet, instruction is not limited to a single physical location. Don’s blog allows anyone to view tips and techniques at their convenience. Through the collaborative efforts of companies with a similar dedication to photography, Don has been able to extend the range of photographic instruction. Don’s continuing participation in programs such as; Fuji’s “Talent Team”, Tamron’s “Learning Center – Lessons, Podcasts & National Workshops”, Nik Software’s “Team Nik”, ExpoDisc’s “Tips From the Pros”, Lexar’s “Elite Photographers”, Bogen’s “Local Heroes”, FJ Westcott’s “ProTips”, typify his commitment to the art form.

Don has released two instructional videos. The second video, "Photographing San Francisco and California's Central Coast" was released by Don Gale Productions in conjunction with Tamron, and was a Telly Awards Winner for best "How To" instructional video as well as the Axiem Award Winner for "Best Editing". A new video is currently in the final production stages.
