Hi World!

meet Donald Haake!

I took my first photo in high school, back in ancient times when we used Plus-X and Tri-X film and printed on photo paper using an enlarger. The excitement when I saw my very first print magically appear on the paper in a bath of chemicals was the coolest thing ever! I was hooked.

It makes me old just thinking about it!

Throughout college I was an avid photographer shooting nature, friends, and just about everything else. I was the photo editor of my college newspaper, which gave me access to the all-important darkroom.

My career, marriage and family took me out of photography for a number of years but sometime in the mid 2000's my creative instincts kicked into gear. 

The camera came out and the shutter finger got strong again.

I also very much enjoy taking shots of the things we never really notice in our day-to-day lives, such as a beautiful sunset, an island beach, or lighted hula hoops twirling against a dark background. Pretty cool stuff. 

 Events photography is my specialty. My role is to create memories and it’s one of the most personally satisfying things I do with my camera. 

 I have had a lot of fun over the years with my photography. I’ve been a newspaper photographer, won prizes at the San Diego County Fair, taught classes and am a graduate of the University of California, San Diego extension’s certificate program called “Photography: Images and Techniques”. I’ve been a member of the Professional Photographer’s of America since 2016.


I hope you enjoy my artwork, and be sure to contact me if you have any questions
