Dan Santillo, who was recently commended and won a place in this year’s ‘Landscape Photographer of the Year 2012’ book by the Royal Photographic Society for a photo of the Brecon Beacons, is a professional photographer based in Pontardawe in Swansea, Wales, specialising in landscape photography. Dan is energetic in his photo taking and will trek miles into the mountains to take photos, often before sunrise to capture the early morning light.
You can find Dan selling his award-winning prints, cards and calendars at the Brecon Craft Fair, he also sells a variety of products online. Dan says:
“I am very much a mountain person and there’s nothing more I love than being in the Brecon Beacons as the sun rises with no-one for miles around.”
