Rod Seel, a fine art landscape photographer and painter, was born and raised in the Midwest. Seel began an advertising and marketing career in 1978 with a Kansas City firm, and soon struck out on his own, forming his own advertising studio in 1979. In 1981, he moved back to his native Topeka and eventually co-founded Jones Seel Huyett Advertising, where he served as the managing principal of the firm until 2005, when he left to pursue his more creative avenues.

Seel’s photography training started early on in his advertising career, mostly shooting studio stills and location shots for advertising clients. Winner of local, regional and national awards, his photography today draws on this extensive background, but adds his love of nature and a well-composed image. He is particularly known for his panoramic photos capturing the natural beauty and expanse of the Midwest prairie. Seel focuses on framing the subtleties of the natural landscape in a way that the casual viewer may not see. His photographic images reflect his fascination with the play of light on textures and forms in the landscape. His work is found in collections around the world. He hopes that through his work people will develop a new appreciation for the natural beauty of our land. “I usually photograph during the ‘golden hour’ just after sunrise or just before sunset, when the light reveals the spirit of the landscape in special ways.”
