Marcus W. Reinkensmeyer is an aspiring Arizona based landscape photographer, especially drawn to less traveled parks and remote wilderness areas. His travels encompass remote mountain ranges, silent slot canyons, lush coastal regions, hidden waterfalls, meandering rivers and urban landscapes. His growing body of images explores the transient quality of light, the intricate patterns of nature and the joy of time spent in quiet exploration.
His work has been published in Backpacker, Country, Shutterbug, AAA Highroads, Nature Photographer, Arizona Republic, Arizona: The Grand Canyon State, Visit Phoenix: 2015 Official Travel Guide to Greater Phoenix, Images Arizona, Where Dinosaurs Roamed and Photographer’s Edge; Arizona Scenic, American Bible Society and Capture My Arizona calendars; featured at Exhibitions Without Walls and Awayn; and displayed at Sky Harbor International Airport, corporate and government office buildings.
In his other “real world” life, Marcus serves as a public sector administrator. He holds a BFA in Psychology and Fine Arts from Michigan State University and an MPA from Northern Illinois University and is a Graduate Fellow of the Institute for Court Management. Marcus and his family reside in Phoenix, Arizona.
Marcus’ photographs and writings can also be found in collaborations with two other Southwest photographers, Windswept Landscape and From Rock to Sand: Death Valley Landscapes, and Landscape Portfolio: Photography Rediscovered.
