[video] Rodney Lough, Jr. speaks to Google: How he left the ‘safe’ corporate world to pursue what he’s impassioned to do!

Rodney’s San Francisco gallery is the largest single artist gallery in the world!

I’m a big fan, having been to three of his four galleries, multiple times!

Quirky sense of humor…

Rodney Lough, Jr.:

“If I had wanted to make money,
becoming an artist was probably not the smartest move.”

“Enrich people’s lives through nature — that’s what I’m seeking to do. …
It only works because I have the passion.”

“Remember we were talking earlier about talent? I’ve actually looked through a lot of other people’s cameras through the years, and some people absolutely have it, and some people don’t. And I can’t explain why that is, other than this concept of we all have different talents, right?

But I’ve had five, six people on this side of me [left], five, six people on this side of me [right]. We’re all looking at the same thing, and I go look at their cameras, and every single one of them is different. It’s really unique, actually. It’s kind of fun.”

Rodney has been traveling to the ends of the earth and weathered all types of climates, in a quest to find nature’s most exquisite terrains to photograph. Equipped with his Dodge 4×4 turbo biodiesel truck, Lance camper, 26′ Custom Jet Boat, camera and tripod — Rodney is determined to obtain that perfect image of Mother Nature at her best. From the sweltering dry deserts of the American Southwest to the Rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, from waist-deep snow fields of the great Alaska wilderness to the frigid peaks of the Rocky Mountains, Rodney has survived everything the earth has thrown at him. He’s even survived a fall off a 30 foot cliff!

Renowned for the vibrant colors and vivid textures of his wilderness and landscape photography, Rodney is a purist who captures what nature creates, using no color filters or darkroom deception. The world today is a remarkable place full of beauty and splendor,” Rodney exclaims. “To witness the simple grandeur of creation, the miracle of nature, is perhaps all that we need. The peace received while viewing a leaf turned color at the height of fall is immense and divine.”
