For photographer, Bret Staehling, there's nothing like the allure of a far away destination, exploring foreign lands, experiencing new cultures, and interacting with the locals. Bret's earliest published photography, for his university newspaper, primarily involved sporting events. But today he is focused on travel, usually sharing the adventure with his wife, Angie and their three children. Traveling in Europe with his family for one year only served to fuel the fires of his passion for photography.
Growing up in a small town and graduating with a degree in sports management, Bret has always had a keen interest in photography. Because of extensive international traveling, Bret renewed this interest and enrolled in various workshops to better hone his skills and develop new perspectives. His style is both modern and classical with a refinement and energy that defines the love of his subject matter. "My goal is to share the beauty and diversity that I have discovered on my travels and to do it in such a way as to inspire, enrich and edify those who view my work. It is important to me that I am always improving the integrity and quality of my work."
When not carrying a camera, Bret enjoys boating, fitness activities, and watching his kids' soccer games. He further keeps busy with teaching endeavors and other entrepreneurial interests. Bret and his family are always in the process of planning their next trip. Where they will visit next is anyone's guess, but it is assured that the dynamic images he captures on film will always reflect his love of the journey.
