Welcome to Chad Rieder Photography


Hello! I am Chad Rieder — a music and landscape photographer based in the beautiful city of Minneapolis, MN. When I’m not shooting a show from the pit of a local music venue, I can oftentimes be found chasing the light with my tripod set up somewhere around town.

By day I work as a front-end web developer for a super awesome award-winning ad agency in downtown Minneapolis. I am continuously seeking, feeling, or planning my next shot or creative project. In my photography, I proudly shoot with Nikon gear exclusively.

What keeps me going:

  • the music
  • excitement of the unknown
  • the wonderful beauty of nature
  • all the shots I have missed
  • a never-ending chase for perfection
  • lots of tea

If you are interested in my work, or just want to say hello, let’s connect.
