What is Dan Baumbach’s Middle Name Photographer

As an artist I need to get my name out. I need for people to know who I am and what I do. This is not something that comes naturally to me. I used to be very happy to be anonymous.

I once had a software company that sold software over the internet; and before the internet through an 800 number, email and a bulletin board. I had an employee who would answer the phone and take orders so I could be left alone to work on my software. If ever anyone wanted to talk to me, I was conveniently out of the office. I even had a made-up name that I would do tech support with.

Now all that is different. I want people to know all about Dan Baumbach. Dan Baumbach is a great photographer and that they should buy his photos, hence this blog, Facebook and everything else.

In spite of my trying to “be somebody,” I’m still amazed that to some people I might actually be somebody. Everyday I check the stats of this blog to see how many people have looked at it. It’s never very many, but when it goes up I do get excited.

More interesting is how they came to find this blog and what they were searching for. The fact that someone would take the time to search for me gives me a kick. Who are these people? Did they find what they were looking for? Why do they never contact me directly? I’m a nice person.

WordPress sometimes gives me the text that was used in the search, hence the title of this blog. Why would someone want to know my middle name? I entered the above search text for myself and I saw a lot of links, but nothing seeming to point to my middle name, which is by the way, Paul.

Perhaps I should mention the photo that introduces this post. This is a new direction that I’m excitedly following. I’ll write about it in another post.

  1. Dan, I, at least, follow your blog because I enjoy your photos as well as your words. I too have wondered about the people that read my own blog, and my own struggle to be a “somebody” in the world of photography. Keep up the good work, Dan, you are a “somebody” whether you know it or not (now, converting your somebody status into a meaningful profit may be a completely different story, but I wish you luck there as well).

  2. I came across your blog via a post on Guy Tal’s blog. I appreciate him for referring us to you. I’m very glad he did. I enjoy your images and like your musings. Thanks.

  3. Well well. Didn’t know a thing about you beyond Facebook posts till now. I’ve enjoyed your work, most of it, & now will enjoy learning about the person.
