Dan Zukowski

Writer • Photographer

My interest in photography began at the age of 13 when my parents gave me a 35mm rangefinder camera. I took up photography seriously in 2007, studying with  masters including the renowned Art Wolfe, Canon Explorers of Light Jennifer Wu and Lewis Kemper. Today I shoot with both digital and film cameras.

My photography has been shown in juried exhibitions in Los Angeles and Maine and has been sold for commercial and editorial use. I also photograph on assignment to accompany my published stories.

As an independent journalist, I have written for CityLab, Sierra Magazine, Hakai Magazine and Mongabay among many others. 

I am a correspondent for Trains Magazine and News Wire, where I primarily cover public transit, commuter rail and transportation technology. I also report on transit and infrastructure politics, both in Washington and on major issues at the local and state level.

My byline has also appeared in Pacific Standard, the San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News and Newsday. 

Originally from New York City, I lived in Southern California for 25 years before relocating to Maine in 2015. I've been traveling since I was old enough to ride the subway and I've never stopped.
