Don Tredinnick

Don TreddinickI've been taking photos since the late 60's, when my grandfather gave me my first camera. I have continued to learn and improve though both self study, and through workshops offered by Rocky Mountain School of Photography, Patrick Endres, and Lance Keimig.

I began offering workshops and classes in late 2012 as a result of the popularity of the photo hikes I lead at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. My photos have appeared in various publications and marketing materials. They have also appeared in several gallery shows. Most recently, I am displaying my photos at the Steeple Art Center in Rosemount MN.

Although I photograph many different subjects, my favorite subject is natural landscapes. This has led me to travel to some great destinations including many of our national parks.
