Randall Nyhof - 2019 AIB Top 20 Finalist

Randall Nyhof was born and raised in West Michigan. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Calvin College, where he majored in painting and printmaking. During his college years, Nyhof became fascinated with photography and has been involved with different aspects of photography, both commercially and artistically, for more than 40 years now. Inspired by the development in digital technology, he produces fine art images with the camera and computer as his main mediums.


As a fourth generation Dutch descendent, Nyhof’s pride in his heritage was the inspiration for his piece, “Impressionistic Dutch Tulips”. He views the camera as a tool and states, “I must be content to make an interpretation of ‘what my eyes see and my mind envisions’. One learns to look and see within the capabilities that the camera and the computer can accomplish. My knowledge and skills have developed over the years, giving me new creative perspectives on my artistic journey.
