Michael Rudd


 As a life-long outdoor enthusiast, Michael Rudd, has spent over 20 years pushing the boundaries of creating fine art with photographs of stunning landscapes, wildlife, and nature. His career as a photographer and writer began in 1999 as the Features Editor for Four-Wheeler Magazine and quickly established a niche in the industry by covering off-road races (including the Baja 1000 and Malaysia Rainforest Challenge), overland expeditions, and wild 4x4 adventures in some of the most remote places on earth. Michael’s exploits have taken him from the heights of Khardung La, India, the highest motorable pass in the world at 17,582 feet, to the southernmost city on the planet, Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego. He has driven in the most extreme conditions on earth, including the frozen wastelands of Hekla Volcano in Iceland and the treacherous ice road to Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada. His work has been published in OutdoorX4, Four-Wheeler, Expedition Portal, Rovers North, Overland Journal, Truck Trends, 4x4 Asia, Hawaii and Nevada Magazines. Michael resides in Colorado and Costa Rica with his wife Breck and they spend several months each year exploring hard to reach destinations throughout the world in efforts to capture unique and compelling fine art images.

Your interest in my work is greatly appreciated and a portion of the proceeds of any Rudd F.otos purchase supports our mission to address global hunger and climate change through donations to The Hunger Project and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


My inspiration for photography and exploration evolved from my early childhood  while reading National Geographic Magazines. As I got older, I  became fascinated with  the historical journals of many great early explorers including Stanley and Livingstone, Amundsen,  The Louis and Clark, Expedition, Percy Fawcett and of course Sir Edmund Hillary.


My photography and lighting  skills were honed as an assistant photographer to Kim Mizuno, an accomplished commercial photographer  in Los Angeles from (1997-1999). Afterwards, I applied these learned techniques in the field as I travelled the globe working for Four-Wheeler Magazine.

Career Highlights

My exploits have taken me from the heights of Khardung La, a high mountain pass in the Himalayas of northern India at 17,582 feet to Ushuaia Tierra Del Fuego, the southernmost city in the world. I have driven in the most extreme conditions on the planet, including the frozen wastelands of Icelandic Highlands and the treacherous ice road to Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada. I had the honor of Joining Joe Custer's Class 7S Team to help navigate and win the first Baja 2000 Offroad Race, the ultimate desert challenge.
