The Photographs of Ray Bidegain, Presented by PDX Urban

The folks at PDX Urban are very excited to announce that on January 12th we will be holding an open house for our new office and showcasing the work of local Portland photographer Ray Bidegain. Ray primarily works with large format photography and over the years has become internationally knows for his technics in printing with platinum. If you've never seen a platinum print in person before I highly recommend coming on by. They are truly breathtaking. 


The show will be taking place on Friday January 12th from 6pm to about 9pm. There will be some light snacks and very tasty wine on hand along with the artist.  It should be a fun way to get your Friday evening going.

Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about the event and we hope to see you there! 

Andrew Kaiser

My name is Andrew Kaiser, welcome to my site! I have a passion for making images wherever and whenever I can. I seek to capture humanity and the world around me with a focus on the figure. Film, digital, pinhole, and instant photography are all fair game for me.

I grew up in the California Bay Area and started taking photography seriously in High School. I was one of the lucky few who had a chance to go to a high school with a working darkroom and a teacher who understood that making images was an art form – care and patience was a necessity in the image making process from start to finish.

Later in life I attended the University of California in Santa Cruz where I received a Bachelors Degree in the History of Art and Visual Culture. After having my fill of the California sunshine I packed up my life and moved to the Pacific Northwest. I quickly found the overcast skies, lush forests, cooler temperatures, and creative communities to be a perfect match for my work.

Over the years I have exhibited my photographs in several galleries and art shows including the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival and Cascade AIDS Project. I’ve published a few books and taught workshops up and down the west coast of the United States. Through this site I’m hoping to share my work and perhaps inspire others along the way.
