Your Bio

Clay Riness is a long time resident of Coon Valley, Wisconsin, USA. He is best known for his long career as a singer / songwriter, concert performer and recording artist. He was inspired to make photography a hobby three and a half decades ago, but the age of digital technology elevated it to a passion ... and another of his serendipitous vocations.

"They tell you you should identify your niche with your camera," he says, "but I can't settle on a niche. I love so many types of photographs, and I want to try whatever I am able to with the resources I have. The more I shoot, the more deeply I love it. Oh ... and, I just need one more lens."
