"The camera is the least important element in photography.” -Julius Shulman
My name is Corey Rudolph, I am a Portland, Oregon area professional photographer. Why Monkey Photography? Well, Monkey is a nickname a good friend gave me years ago. I wanted a business name that was memorable and fun. Because after all photography should be fun for not only me but especially my clients. My goal every time I go out to shoot is to capture and tell an amazing story in images. Photo stories are what drives me.
I create modern lifestyle portraits of people. Capturing the love between the Bride and Groom, or a sweet moment between a mother and her child. Capturing your life's moments to cherish for a lifetime is what I love most about being a Photographer.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” –Helen Keller
When I am not writing about myself, I like to go hiking with my dogs, spending time with my family, and working on projects. I like to cook unique dishes from scratch, although sometimes too unique for my family.
I like to give back to my community. Having a father and Grandfather affected by cancer, it disease I am devoted to helping fight. I am an official photographer for Magic Hour as one way I can give back. Magic Hour is a national network of professional photographers who look to serve individuals and families fighting cancer. I also donate to Bridge Town Inc. a nonprofit helping the less fortunate in the Portland area. I live in the Portland area with my wife, daughter and our two beloved dogs, Roxy and Lucy.
