About Dick Durrance

Dick Durrance’s first assignment as a photographer was published as a 45 page cover story in National Geographic when he was a student at Dartmouth College. He went on to distinguish himself as a U.S. Army combat photographer in Vietnam, staff photographer at National Geographic, business owner photographing global campaigns for advertising agencies, publisher of posters featuring panorama pictures of the National Parks, and creator of photographic libraries for some of the world’s great golf courses . He now shares with audiences the very best of what he learned about tapping into their creative vision and selecting photographs to communicate their vision to teams, customers and prospects.
