I'm Bob Rider. Husband. Father of four sons. Navy Veteran. Retired cop. Road cycling enthusiast. Certified Professional Photographer. (CPP) I've been behind a camera since the early 1980's. I learned first on film, when getting it right in camera meant a whole lot. I believe it matters today too. In my industry, there's a cry for what makes what you do unique and a lot of folks struggle with that very concept. I believe wholeheartedly that I AM what makes my work unique. I bring amazing life experiences and a genuine love of craft to my work. I have a penchant for creating joyful, dynamic, and often dramatic portraits. I think you'll see that here in the pages of our web site.
And I invite you to come meet us in person. Come to our studio and see our work firsthand. There's really no substitute for meeting face to face, sharing some conversation, and experiencing our difference.
I'm Brianna Rider. I am the studio manager, key grip, and I keep an eye on wardrobe & makeup during sessions. I'm a mom of boys. California native. Have a background in banking. Bob and I share our passion for road cycling. And I'm a small business owner.
I adore the images we create. The craft that goes into the creativity. I love working with a vision and helpling in the creative process. I also tend to most of the backend work - the business behind the business, if you will.
I'm easy to get in touch with if you have any questions for me. I'd love to hear from you and I look forward to working with you.
