About Danese Santana

I was born and raised in San Francisco, lived in New York City and Brooklyn for some time, and now my home is an old cobblestone farmhouse in the Finger Lakes region in upstate New York.  Adapting to rural life has been a lengthy, hair-raising and often hilarious process which has brought nature right to my door and opened up a new world of photographic challenges and opportunities.  This portfolio includes people and travel sections as well as nature photography.

Each one of us has a unique perspective; no two people see things exactly the same way.  The photos here represent the beauty and wonder of our world as I see them and my hope is that they resonate with something inside you.
