About Tony Grider

ARTIST STATEMENT AND BIO


Artist Statement

I prefer using available light whenever possible and find myself drawn to the beauty of objects and landscapes captured during my travels and around my home in Oklahoma. My goal is to capture and create a unique image that transports the viewer to another place and time.

Bio

Tony is a self-taught photographer who has preference for fine art still photography. He credits the influence of family and that he received throughout his early years for the success he has today. His mother introduced him to photography as a child with a Brownie black and white film camera and continued her joy of photography throughout her life. In addition, two of his uncles were avid camera and photography enthusiasts who often traded camera equipment to compete with one another for best photos.

Tony is a member of the Norman Arts Council, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, Paseo Arts Association, and Houston Center for Photography. He has sold his photographs to collectors around the world from Beverly Hills, California to Sydney, Australia. His collection of photography work “Eclectic Fine Art Images”, was recently on exhibition at the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond, Oklahoma. For the past three years, his photographs have been selected for exhibition at the Oklahoma City Paseo Small Art Show. Tony most recently received a Merit Award for his photograph, “Ferrris Wheel” at the 2015 OKC Paseo Small Art Show.

Americana Photographia Collection

View All Galleries

Welcome to my new Americana Photographia gallery. My goal is to create unique photographs that have been recently captured and transformed to fit my own vision and style I call Retro Sunset Vintage. I begin by capturing the sharpest image possible in the best light possible, then through various adjustments with tones and lighting using multiple software programs and filters, produce images that touch me emotionally and artistically. My purpose is not to create the most perfect technical photograph or follow any particular set of rules. I use digital photo software to obtain the tones that are most pleasing to me with minimal cropping or structural adjustments to the object or landscape in the original photo The photographic images in my new collection are a result of landscapes, objects, and colors that I enjoy. I hope that you will find the same appreciation for the warm browns, turquoise, rust, and golden tones depicted both naturally and through the use of various digital filters in this series. The amusement park photos were partially inspired from the work of Alwin H. Kuchler, German cinematographer from the motion picture, HANNA. The film scenes from the abandoned amusement park are not only symbolic to the storyline, but captured in a very stylistic manner. My goal is for each image to become a time machine that transports you to another place and time in order to leave your present day thoughts and stress behind. Plans are to have LIMITED EDITIONS of large high resolution prints from this series be made available on request at a password protected gallery. I hope you enjoy my galleries and that you will send me your comments via Email.
