Frank Ritenour, photographic artist, has developed his unique style and technique through 30 plus years of art, photographic training and experience to produce award winning photographic art.
Rather than shooting the traditional posed portraits, Frank’s portraits show his clients in a relaxed manner they want. The result is a style that brings out the best in his portraits without having the stiff, posed look. One client said, “I have had my children’s pictures taken every year and these are the best.” Teen’s, who are often hard to please, say “That photo shoot was fun.” One look at his work and you will agree, his portraits are what people want.
Franks landscape and fine art photography has a style all his own. Being a lover of nature is essential to capturing great photography. Frank strives to capture the moment when the light is at its peak and the natural beauty shines through. This results in pictures with impact and style that stand out.
Ritenours Photography services include Weddings, Family Portraits, and commercial photography. Frank uses the same artistic techniques to bring out the best for his clients personal and commercial work. What he does with wedding albums is simply a work of art telling the story of the wedding day.
One of Frank’s biggest hits has been with his photographic classes and workshops. His class “From Snapshots to Art” is very popular. He has taken the classes further with a series of workshops that concentrate on specific areas like portraits, panoramic pictures and high dynamic range images. Comments from his students like these are typical:
“Your comparison of photographs – before and after – was exciting to see what could be done with my photographs.”
“The field trips are great. It gives us a chance to put into play the things we have been talking about. ”
“Seeing what you shot as compared to what we took was impressive. It gave me the incentive to go on.”
“What you can do in Photoshop is amazing. I am glad to know what possibilities exist for improving my photography. Now I need to apply what you have taught us.”
Embracing the latest tools available in this fast changing world of photography and combining them with proven methods, Frank is able to provide his clients the very best quality and methods available for their photographic art.
