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.


Beer and a Bicycle

For the first time in many, many months I was able to turn off all electronics and sneak away for an unplugged weekend. It was just me, my bike, a camera, and… let’s just say… a few beers.
