Phoenix-based wildlife photographer Dan Elster took up photography about 11 years ago, inspired by the drama of nature. All of his subjects are wild (neither caged nor staged) lending to the authenticity of his work. Elster's photographs are hanging in Liquid Assets and the Pelton House Bed and Breakfast in Ashland and Designer Framing in Medford. He also regularly shows on Saturdays and Sundays at Ashland's Lithia Artisan's Market. To view more of his work, visit www.elsterphotography.com.
