Welcome to Collateral Creators.


Hi! Thanks for visiting Collateral Creators, which is owned and operated by Dan Tobin in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I’m the Director of Marketing and Communications for a Pennsylvania region of a national nonprofit. I’m also an avid cyclist and “advanced amateur” photographer.

This site provides a place for me to share some of my adventures, whether I’m discussing a new cycling route or showing a photo from a successful shoot.


Dorothea Lange reminded us that “the camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” The following galleries contain images I have taken over the past several years in my attempt to capture what I see when looking through the viewfinder.



Due to the shear amount of spam that comes through the contact page, I have opted to delete the contact form altogether.
