Dan truly does rock. His photography is of the highest quality, and I find a lot of inspiration by browsing through his photostream. In addition, he gives wonderful feedback and is truly interested in helping you become a better photographer as well as in helping you really get the most out of your Flickr experience. I'd had a Flickr account for awhile before I really became an active member of the community, and Dan has really helped show me the way in how to engage with the community and give as well as receive. He gets a big A+ in my book. Thanks, Dan!

Dan is an amazing photographer. But he is much more than just a photographer, he's a wealth of knowledge and a true friend. I've never met someone with so much knowledge of photography. I've learned so much from his posts and comments in several of the groups he's in, and I'm sure I have much more to learn. He's generous with his comments and faves, and never seems to miss an image of mine. He never has a negative thing to say, and is always friendly. Dan is one of the best contacts I have, and one of the best photographers I know. Dan has this knack of taking the ordinary object, and turning it into the extraordinary. He is simply a fantastic photographer and friend! If you havn't had a chance to view his shots, I would suggest you do so now. You don't know what your missing!

My concept of friend: a person that is always there for you, applauding, cheering up, motivating, commenting and up lifting your mood, finding encouraging words, teaching and giving himself in every word. This is Dan for me. A true friend. And he also takes good photos...

Well, where do I start ! :o) I talk too much and write to much when commenting, but I can not write about how great a friend CORDAN has been me. Flickr- land has been a better place for having known him. I appreciate his humor, and kindness to me, and his abilty to make me understand Flickr info that I thought was beyond my comprehension ! Thanks ! :o) The first time I commented on one of his photos, I think he was surprised that anyone would find his photos interesting. They are very interesting ! I like to view what ever he decides to upload, because I then get a look at his world on the left coast as seen from his viewpoint , and his viewpoint is very interesting !! I have never been there, and so his garden is interesting, the State he lives in is interesting, and his view of it all is interesting !! Did I say interesting? Yep ! :o) Dan, I appreciate your patience with my drama-queen days ! I appreciate your comments and faves, and your appreciation of my endless sunflowers ! (BTW, I have enough shots left to last until fall !! ) :o) I appreciate your patience with my endless questions ! Thanks for being a my friend ! I am here when ever you need an ear.... to vent about life, Explore, Flickr, or about pain. If you and your wife ever find yourselves on the right coast, our door is open ! :o)

Cordan is not only a great photographer but he is also a wonderful friend. He is generous with his comments and his advice. He has a great eye for spotting beauty in the ordinary (and the not so ordinary). He has taught me so much, not only from looking at his work, but also through his willingness to answer questions, no matter how novice they may be. He is truly a wonderful, generous, thoughtful, honest, caring person. Traits he cannot hide. You read it in his comments and you feel it in his photography. Cordan has no agenda. He is a good person that likes to help others in whatever way he can. He helped me get my first picture into Explore, for which I am eternally grateful. No matter how much I wrote in this testimonial, it still could not fully describe what a great person Cordan is. Thank you, Doc, for everything that you have taught me and everything you have yet to teach me. Thank you for the comments that make me laugh and the comments that encourage me when I am down. Thank you for suffering through my endless 'look! a bird!' photostream and always finding something to comment on. Most importantly, thank you for being my friend.
