Dan Addison began his photography career as a sports photojournalist. He worked for the NBA and Reuters capturing professional and collegiate sports throughout the 1990s. His images were published in USA Today, ESPN Magazine, The Chicago Tribune and several others.  

Dan’s roots were in graphic design and multimedia and he began his career shortly after he received a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Kentucky. In 2005 he joined The University of Virginia where he currently is the lead staff photographer. He covers news events and sports and also does portraits of faculty, staff and students. Dan can often be seen strolling the Grounds of UVa documenting student life and capturing dramatic images of perhaps the most scenic and historic universities in the US. 

Most weekends Dan aims his lens at couples tying the knot as he documents weddings throughout Central Virginia. If he ends up with any free time he heads for the nearby mountains where he records the beauty of what has become to be known as Jefferson’s Virginia.
