Inspired by the American cowboy culture, photographers/artists Clay “Flash” Corbisier and Adrienne “River” DeLiso established The Untamed Image (formerly 1881 Western Photography Co.) in the shadow of the rugged Teton Mountains of Jackson Hole Wyoming in 2007. http://www.theuntamedimage.com
Specializing in photographing the American western experience both traditional and contemporary, Flash & Adrienne (River) have photographed thousands of horses, cowboys, cowgirls and wildlife across the west from Texas to Wyoming and finally settling in Bozeman, MT.
