About Ridinger's, the Art of Photography

Mike & Jessica Ridinger own and operate their studio in beautiful downtown Lewiston, Idaho.  Their pride and joy are their two sons, Keaton and Cade.  Every day is a great day at Ridinger's, the Art of Photography where they get to go to work and enjoy what they love, creating images and having meaningful relationships with their clients.  They are the 3rd owners of the studio that was originally established in 1917 as Engstroms.


Mike is like a kid in a candy store when it comes to his camera room and all the tools he uses to create his images.  While being a firm believer in the traditional lighting and posing that has paid the bills for years, he is constantly growing in his art and bringing new and edgy styles to mix it up.  If you know Mike, that’s the only way he can stay somewhat focused at work.  After almost 30 years, he has been fortunate enough to collect all different photography toys to play with (just ask Jess) ... which result in an amazing variety of images for his clients.  
 
Mike was recently awarded his PPA Craftsman Degree at Imaging USA.  He is a past President of Professional Photographers of Idaho, and is regarded by many as one of the best mentors in the industry.  He has had the privilege of teaching twice at Nationals with Professional Photographers of America, with several state organizations, Light Pro Expo, After Dark Edu and SYNC.  He is constantly giving back with his knowledge to his fellow photographers.

Ridinger's, the Art of Photography is a full service portrait studio, with an emphasis on customer service and complete satisfaction. It's not just about the awesome images, but a great customer experience.
