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 web developer for a super awesome award-winning ad agency in downtown Minneapolis. I am continuously seeking, feeling, or planning my next shot or 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.
