Dale and Marian were married in 1971 and  Marian instantly became an integral part of Dales life not only in raising a family but also in photography.   They raised four beautiful children and currently have sixteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren. They have owned and operated several Photography Studios in the Salt Lake City, Utah area.  They  have traveled throughout the World photographing amazing sites and people. In the year 2000 they sold their last studio, Mar Del Photography. They purchased a condo in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and moved there in 2002 where they set up Artistic Photography by Dale, a web based photographic business. Their new studio was designed and created by Mother Nature.   

Dale's images have been published in numerous books and periodicals including the World Book, National Audubon, and the cover of The Professional Photographers of America. Dale has received many awards and accolades.  His favorite awards are his three Kodak Gallery Awards which resulted in his work being displayed three times at the Walt Disney Epcot Center in Florida.  In Puerto Vallarta, Dale and Marian are active in the Navy League and the International friendship club and have helped with, and participated in many charitable events. They have been fortunate to make many new friends from all walks of life and they both became much healthier individuals since moving to Puerto Vallarta.

During his career,  Dale has photographed with many cameras including a 4x5 view camera, a Hasselblad 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 film camera (the camera that went to the moon and stayed), and Several Nikon 35mm film cameras.  He has photographed on Kodak negative film, Kodak Kodachrome film, and now digital.
