Bradley Glaves is a recently published photographer with a focus on landscapes, vintage Americana (old cars, trucks, buildings, historical sites) and unique subjects. He recently moved to Prineville from Scottsdale and reports he absolutely loves it here stating, “hope to never move from here as there is not even a close second.”
The June 12 Prineville Art Crawl will occur on the 2nd Friday of the month through September.
Glaves has a key eye for capturing vintage Americana. “I was returning home from Central Washington on the back roads and my hunter’s eye caught the subjects and I stopped to explore (I didn’t even have a tripod with me). A few days later I showed them to my wife (who has a 20 year fashion design/marketing background) and she thought I pulled them off of a website. “Without correcting her, I took the trucks to be printed on canvas locally and when I came home to show her how it looked she said ‘that will sell very well.’ I showed it to a few more people and at a winery and the orders started coming.”
Traveling off the beaten path has inspired Glaves. “I get to travel the Western United States in my position as a commercial real estate executive and I spot the most interesting subjects off the beaten path that make for great art. I want to bring these subjects back to life and make them available to people who appreciate our Americana Heritage.”
