Bridges Aderhold is a photographer of his generation. Exploring South Florida in the 90’s, he lived with a camera in his hand. Assisting influential photographers he discovered nature through the photo lens, honing his eye to natural and enhanced lighting.
Wanting to develop his lighting and photography skills, Aderhold headed West at the age of 19 to follow in the footsteps of America’s greatest landscape photography pioneers.
On arrival to San Francisco he set out to study various lighting and reflecting techniques in response to the natural landscape and weather patterns. California sunsets were the answer to Florida’s sunrise.
To balance his research he enlisted in freelance studio jobs of fashion and product photography developing his craft of conceptual lighting. In due course, he disregarded fundamental photography ideas, whilst preferring instead to provoke his mind whilst pushing the camera’s inner workings to the limits.
Over the years California’s variation of coastal and inland valleys supplemented by distinct microclimates fulfilled the necessary components of discovery for Aderhold to embrace the know-how of early America’s iconic photographers.
Returning to South Florida in 2009 he opened “GAB” a photography studio and gallery in the developing arts district known as WYNWOOD.
Today, Aderhold travels the globe with his wife and daughter capturing the essence of inspiration through his photography.
