Justin Riley

My name is Justin Riley and welcome to my photography webpage and online portfolio. I am a semi-professional photographer from Lawrence, Kansas, with a four-year degree in the Liberal Arts from Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa. My photography experience involves photojournalism as well as documentary, landscape and travel photography. Furthermore, I have recently started photographing weddings, shooting with a perspective unique to photojournalism. Wedding photos can be seen bellow under the gallery "weddings."

If you or anyone you know has a wedding, family gathering or event that they would like photographed, I am currently available for hire and can be reached at for price quotes and scheduling. Also, note that all of the photographs on this webpage are available for purchase and printing. If you would like to purchase a photograph archived under the gallery "My Raw photo collection" please email me with the link to the photo that you would like and I will properly edit the photo for printing and sale. Photos in all other galleries are ready for sale and printing via the shopping cart.

Photography Experience: From 2004-2006 I photographed for and co-edited the Grinnell Cyclone (The 2005 book can be viewed online at []), an annual 182 page memory book focused on artistic, black-and-white documentary photography. In May of 2006 I graduated from Grinnell College and worked on a publicity publication for Grinnell which highlighted current Grinnellians participating in summer internships around the country. In the Spring of 2007 I worked as a freelance photographer for The ArgenTimes [] out of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Most recently I have focused on landscape photography, weddings, and photojournalism revolving around Latin American's current political swing to the left. I was in Cuba last winter for Fidel's resignation and then in El Salvador covering the presidential elections this past March completing pieces for the ArgenTimes [], North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) [], and Upside Down World []. I am currently living in Carbondale, Colorado, and plan to move out West to Portland, Oregon, this coming November.
