Daniel Walter Hill
Daniel Walter Hill, a travel and photography enthusiast
For as long as he can remember, Daniel Walter Hill has held a camera in his hand. His first camera, a simple automated point-and-shoot, was given to him by his grandfather. His family was happy and eager to pose for him, striking candid poses, posing for birthday photographs, and striking every conceivable pose! The encouragement of NAME’s family encouraged his interest in photography.
National Park Visits on the East Coast
Summers at the Hill house meant planning trips to national parks along the East Coast. Dan will remember these visits because they not only brought the family closer together, but also ingrained in him a love of wildlife photography. Mr. Hill remembers these family vacations fondly, from Acadia to Biscayne. Photographing the Atlantic coast from Acadia National Park to the mangroves of Biscayne National Park and the wetlands of Everglades National Park has undoubtedly changed Daniel Walter Hill’s life.
Currently, the West Coast is in a state of flux.
In keeping with tradition, Daniel Walter Hill has taken it upon himself to present his children with the same experiences he experienced as a child. He wants his children to share his love of nature, so trips to national parks have become a family tradition in his household. This time, though, their travels would take them to national parks on the West Coast.
Yosemite National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Redwood National Park, and the Grand Canyon National Park have all been visited by his family.
This summer, they’re planning a trip to the Florida panhandle.
On his blog, Daniel talks about his childhood travels to national parks as well as vacations he’s taken with his own family. Please visit the page to learn more about his photographic adventures in these parks.
