Pete Rezac, a portrait photographer based in Reno, Nevada, still chooses to work with 35mm, medium and large format cameras and film in creating his work. He loves the tactile process it provides him, along with the experience it provides his clients. Seeking an authentic look to his portraits, Pete was inspired to create timeless portraits showing subjects at their best. This work has earned him numerous accolades from the
photographic community.

He is an active educator teaching and mentoring other professional photographers throughout the United States, something that he very much loves to do!
