Fine Art & Landscape Photography by
Randy A. Wood
While Redding, California was certainly not the beginning of my journey with a camera, it is now my home of almost 17 years. My start was somewhere in the grassy green vineyards, rolling hills, and starry-skied summer nights of Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley. My high school sweetheart and Wife of nearly 30 years, Wendy Wood, and I have raised 3 beautiful children and are now proud grandparents of two beautiful little girls. I am Randy Wood, Owner of & Landscape Photographer for Wood R.A. Photography (Redding, CA).
By day I am a Senior Land Surveyor for the State of California and have been in the career since April of '91. My job has provided me many opportunities to travel to some of the most beautiful locations in our State giving me a range of experience. I feel so blessed to reside in a location surrounded by so much natural beauty everywhere I look. My Wife has been one of my biggest supporters and advocates of my photography, really pushing me to fulfill my destiny in taking it to the next level living each day to the fullest. If my Wife isn't with me, my trusty sidekick, (my 4-year old, energetic, yellow-lab) Tobias Jack (aka 'Toby') can be found cutting across the switchbacks and foot trails with me, since he is the least bit camera-shy...thus far.
Friends who know me well know I haven't missed a sunrise in over 30 years. When I am not at my office or getting candid shots of my granddaughters, I can be found anywhere surrounded by lush, dense, green forest; seeking that perfect reflection on one of our many lakes; along one of our many rivers, streams, and waterfalls; or chasing the drama of the very last beaming ray of light at sunset. To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, 'Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting”.
While my youngest daughter would describe my work as something 'visionary' I just think of it as imaginative & original. My photography has helped me find an incredible peace of mind with each and every humbling experience I encounter 'through the lens'. Seeing my memories of the lost sandy shores now just a distant memory on a canvas years later has made my dream of capturing those otherwise lost moments in time quite a reality.
My goal as a business owner is to provide North State residents with quality images I've captured of surrounding natural landscapes and local monuments from the comfort of your own home or business office; from the coastal redwoods, to majestic volcanoes, & high desert plains just out of your reach, to the green valley in which we live, the variety of images I have to provide will always be within a reasonable, affordable price range and with complimentary friendly, and dependable services.
