Commercial, portrait, and advertising photographer with seventeen years of experience creating images for advertising and editorial use including corporate, industrial, product, architecture, medical, mining, construction, travel, event, and aerial photography. Fist became interested in photography in high school 22 years ago while taking a photography class. I then became the high school newspaper and yearbook photographer. I also worked a few summers for local newspapers as an event and sports photographer. Studied photography in college and received an Associate of Applied Science in Photographic Communications. Freelanced for many newspapers and magazines. I loved photography, being creative, telling a story in a photograph, taking a concept and turning it into a picture. In my free time, I create photography (personal photography work includes ranch, rodeo, and cowboy photography), rodeo (team rope), and spend time with my family. Born and raised on a Wyoming/Colorado family ranch. My portfolio and website can be seen at www.idlerphotography.com.
