About Us

Who is American Solitude Photography?

American Solitude Photography is made up of Travis Miles and Ben Ricker. Both have been photographing for years.

Travis has a love for the outdoors and for animals. He excels at capturing special moments with your beloved pet, wheather that be a cat, dog, horse or any other creature. Travis is an amazing nature photographer, capturing the calming effect that nature can have on us. He is the second camera on weddings, lending a unique perspective that can't always be captured by one photographer.

Ben loves photographing everything, but has a special affinity for light. He loves the way the sun's rays look as they fall through a forests canopy or shine around a tree's trunk. Ben loves working with children, capturing not only their smiles but the cute things that make each child special. As a portrait and wedding photographer, Ben strives to photograph the moments that are so enduring to each person and capture who that person is.

The philosophy behind American Solitude Photography is that you can get good photos for a decent price. We try to keep prices as low as we can and give you as many options as possible. If you read our pricing guide you'll see that we are not outrageously priced. Also with every sitting or wedding you always get a flash drive with full copyrights. So you don't even have to print through us!

All of our "Fine Art" we print for you in any size you would like. We will make suggestions as to what size might work best for that photo, but you are never obligated to go with that size. Both Travis and Ben love the outdoors and love photographing the splendor of nature. It's amazing how much we miss as we run about our lives. We hope to bring some of that solidarity that nature gives us into your home.

Please look around the site and e-mail us with any questions or comments. We can always do special requests. If you can't find what you're looking for we may have it, it's just not displayed. I hope that we can help capture your memories.
