Adirondack Images by Daniel Way

Born in Glens Falls, my interest in photography began at age 11 when I earned a Kodak camera selling Boy Scout wreaths. My father taught me how to develop film and print my own pictures. It helped me to appreciate composition and framing a shot. In high school I became a yearbook photographer and learned the journalistic aspects of photography. My first published photographs and articles appeared in the local newspaper illustrating school events in the late 1960’s.

My life’s work began in 1981 when I started my medical career as a Family Physician with the Hudson Headwaters Health Network. Suddenly I was practicing medicine in the heart of the Adirondacks and had access to photo opportunities that were limited only by the hours of my work schedule.

These efforts culminated in my first book entitled All in a Day’s Work: Scenes and Stories from an Adirondack Medical Practice in 2004, and the sequels Never a Dull Moment and We Were There followed in 2012 and 2016. I have published illustrated magazine articles in Adirondack Life, American Journal of Nursing, Family Medicine, Adirondac, The Penn Stater and Upstate New York.
