Life and Leisure has become a showcase for the artistry of Dan Evans, our multi-talented resident photographer. Dan joined us as a part-timer at age 19, fresh out of Lodi High. He’s now 29, our photo chief, and a fellow who loves to learn and try new things.
The current issue reflects his formidable range. He worked hard to get the right angles for our cover package on Julie Scheiss, who teaches infants how to swim. For one shot, Dan climbed on top of a planter next to a swimming pool to get an elevated, bird’s eye view of Scheiss and her very young student.
