Dan Dry Joins Power Creative As Photo Big Dog

February 10th, 2011 by jake · 2 Comments

The PR/Comm/Advertising/Whatever wars are waging on here in the big city of Louisville. And famed photographer Dan Dry is joining Power Creative as the company’s Chief Visual Officer.

Dry, who has won more than 400 national and international photograph and design awards, is likely most well-known locally for his Pulitzer Prize-winning work in the Courier-Journal/A Kentucky Newspaper.


“Although I was working in Chicago for eight years, Louisville has always been the place I considered to be home,” said Dry. “My family and so many friends are here, and Power Creative is a premier agency with a great roster of clients. I’m looking forward to being a part of this very talented group of people.”

Power’s got a gigantic studio space and already has four full-time photographers. The addition of Dry just… ensures there’s no competition within a zillion mile radius.

He’s published 23 coffee table books, has contributed to more than 100 other books and has been the official photographer for Churchill Downs’ Kentucky Derby coverage since the beginning of time. He’ll continue to hold that role and will also serve as Director of Photography for the Breeders’ Cup.

Yeah, it’s PR hype. But it’s kind of a big deal for this town.

    Dan is truly the top of his field. In addition to the impressive list mentioned, Dan has been heavily involved with a Louisville based food magazine.

    For the last 9 years I have had the pleasure of working with Dan in his role as my Chief Photographer at Food & Dining Magazine.

    Congrats Dan! Power Creative landed a star.
