My name is Rick Budde. I am an amateur photographer based in St. Louis MO.

I retired at the end of 1993 and have dedicated myself to enjoying my friends and my life. In 1996, I sold my rental property on Longboat Key FL and swapped it for a townhome in Driggs ID. Now I spend my summers there in close proximity to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.

I have always loved working with computers and developing this web site provides the means to share two of the passions I have developed since retiring in 1994.

In retirement, I have developed an interest in photography. It started with my first digital camera in 2003... a Fuji FinePix 3 mega-pixel camera. After a number of upgrades over the years, I now shoot with a
Canon EOS-1D X.

I enjoy taking landscape and animal photos but I really enjoy my candid photos of people. I have made a number of new friends by first taking their photo and then starting a conversation with them.


Casa Budde West

During my working life, I would vacation from time to time in Grand Teton National Park (
1975 Journal). I developed a dream to some day purchase property in the Tetons. In 1996, that dream became a reality when I purchased a brand new townhouse in Driggs, Idaho which is 35 miles from Jackson, Wyoming. I now spend late-May through the first week of September there.

I enjoy the absolutely beautiful scenery, hiking, photography and entertaining visitors. But mostly I enjoy the lack of heat and humidity in the summer. I would love to have you visit me in Driggs some summer. I truly enjoy having visitors.
