Photography is the process of freezing time and sharing that moment with others.
Hi, my name is Nelson Rudiak and I'm a photographer and musician living in Rome, New York (near Syracuse). I started taking 35mm photographs in the late 1970"s while growing up in New Jersey and after college moved to Providence, Rhode Island. It was there that I started to seriously learn about photograhy from my brother John who taught photo at the Rhode Island School of Design. He later went on to teach at the University of New Mexico so without paying any tuition I received a very good education in photography! At this point I was taking photos (mainly landscapes and nature) and playing music in New England, Eventually music became my sole focus and photography was put on the back burner until late 2000. That year, my brother passed away and I decided to return to photography (all digital) as a way of remembering him. I still feel his presence when I'm out shooting to this day. It's always a thrill to discover the amazing and varied beauty that nature provides and photography is the perfect way for me to share my love of those scenes with others. Some of my work has been taken as near as my back yard and others as far away as Alaska. My work has been published in National Park Trips Planning Guides for the Great Smokies as well as winning awards in Photographer's Forum magazine (2017). I've also been honored by The International Color Awards for 2019 and 2020. I hope that looking at my photos brings you some joy and helps you realize that the world is a beautiful, peaceful place. An artist friend of mine once told me "you don't take photographs, you go home with the ones that were given to you". They are truly great gifts that last a lifetime.
