For over a century, photographers have been capturing the beauty and history of the West.
Today, western photographers use their lenses to render images that capture a disappearing lifestyle, moments of sweet repose and breathtaking landscapes.
Western photography is used to convey messages of an American culture and cross boundaries into mainstream living through images for advertising and product photography.
Many aspects of western living are captured in images whether it be western furnishings, the cowboy lifestyle, ranch living or the glorious wide open spaces. Western photography is capturing the history of a truly American Culture.
