Shane Russeck is a modern day adventurer, explorer and photographer. He has built a body of work based on his personal exploration and interests. Shane's deep passion for fine art along with The American West & American Outlaw culture that gives his photography kind of beauty that may be a touch unrefined and uniquely dangerous.
Shane first picked up a camera while training with legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach. The picture taken that day now hangs in the International boxing Hall of Fame. Since then Shane has photographed Sylvester Stallone, Mario Lopez, Dancing with the Stars cast member Peta Murgatroyd, Michael Madsen, Victor Webster and Celebrity Photographer Timothy White for various projects, to name a few. Shane traveled with the Rodeo for two years during which time he also set off to shoot and series on Wild Mustangs. Both series were followed with gallery shows in both NY and LA along with critical acclaim.
I AM CAPTIVATED BY THE HIDDEN ART IN SITUATIONS OFTEN UNSEEN, DRIVEN BY THE CHASE FOR FINDING THE EXTRAORDINARY BEAUTY IN UNIQUELY DANGEROUS SITUATIONS.
