About Big Tree

Big Tree Images specializes in Canine Portrait Photography while offering Landscape and Fine Art Prints to fill your walls!  Big Tree is owned and operated by Charlie Riter along with his wife, Melinda.  A home base of Hood River, Oregon plays an obvious hand in Charlie's work but a "have camera, will travel" photographic philosophy mixed with a desire for exploration allows for images from a wide range of locations. 

We take pride in capturing images able to describe the sometimes indescribable greatness of your canine companion.   Many of the dog images you see on Big Tree are captures of Charlie and Mel’s 3 dog pack of laughs.  Please learn more about our Canine Sessions under the Canine Portraits tab!

In a day and age where digital is the rule, Big Tree Images seeks to offer a different feel of photograph with many film options.  Charlie’s first camera was a medium format, Mamiya 645 Pro TL. That camera still holds a place in the camera rotation.  The use of both film and digital mediums can also provide a warm and welcoming tone to your canine portraits.

Please head over to the Contact tab with any inquiries on Prints or Portrait Sessions.  Feel free to give Big Tree a follow on Instagram and Facebook as both will be updated often with new images and special offers!
