Photographer Dan Taylor was born on December 3, 1975, in Albany, New York, USA. He studied Opera Performance at the Eastman School of Music, in Rochester, New York, and moved to New York City after graduating in 1999. While growing his opera career, Dan supplemented his earnings by working at an internet startup during the first dot com boom in the early 2000’s. It was here that he first gained exposure to, and experience in the tech industry.Upon immigrating to Europe in 2007, and being confronted with the German language, Dan began blogging his experiences in Europe and combining them with an outlook on the European tech scene. This writing eventually led him to a position at The Next Web as a regular contributor.Searching for great imagery to accompany the written word, and not finding anything he found suitable, Dan stepped in with his camera to provide photographic documentation of various technology conferences and events. Since 2013, he’s captured some of the most notable events in Europe and the United States.
