Photo Vagabond

Dan Milner "adventure nut" has been riding since 1985, published regularly since 1993. Getting the shot under his own power, lit as nature intended. I made a short film that profiled Dan and his "kooky" view of the world. This was part of an ongoing series documenting the Yeti Tribe (bike freaks).

Dan's Passion

The short film focused on Dan's passion for adventure and the connections he has made to the places and the people he has visited along the way.

“Making the bike thing work for me has been phenomenal. It has taken me to so many places. ”

Footage shot on location in Dan's adopted hometown of Chamonix was combined with interviews, archival images, and his personal POV videos to tell his story.

The use of Dan's POV footage from his many adventures allowed the audience to gain a broader perspective on the self-proclaimed Trail Ninja.
