I might be biased, but I think the Valley has some of the most beautiful spots to photograph; be it the landscape that merges prairie and city at the furthest corners of our towns’ blocks, the diverse individuals and families, students, children, and elders who make up our community, or the small moments that tell the story of everyday life in a mid-sized city on the eastern side of a relatively diffusely-populated state. If it’s so wonderful, why not show it off? We’re thinking the same thing.
So, please take a peek at Fargo, Framed; where we feature a handful of photographers from the area who are working behind the scenes to showcase and tell the story of the region and those within it.
Chase Evert, Chase Chapters Photography
Chase has had a camera in his hand since he was a kid and is now in his third full year of shooting professionally.
With a parent in real estate, he grew up pointing his camera around open houses. He now captures spaces for architects, real estate agents, interior designers, and even historical societies.
His focus is on documenting not just the room or the building, but the spirit of a place as well, resulting in images that evoke a sense of warmth and intrigue—of a story already in motion.
Tylar Frame, Tylar Fram Photography
“Photography has always been an integral part of my life—even my last name is Frame (yes, really).”
“It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do. I find joy in whatever I’m photographing, whether it be weddings, self-portraits, senior photos, or personal projects my friends and I come up with for fun. Whimsical photos with rich, true-to-life colors are my jam.”
Ryley Wiering, Ryley.Anne Photography
“I’m a photographer who is passionate about making people feel their absolute best in front of the lens.”
“I specialize in portraiture— covering high school seniors, families, business professionals, and the occasional event.”
“In 2014, a friend asked me to take their senior portraits and I’ve been hooked on photography ever since.”
