Featured Exhibitor: Rachel's Photos


Rachel Cain has been capturing images for 20 years, and her experience behind the lens definitely shows in her beautiful photos. Drawing inspiration from rural Minnesota, Rachel's barn images are the perfect touch for rustic home decor. We especially love the simplicity of her compositions, allowing the texture of her subject matter to speak for itself.
Who are you and what do you do?
Rachel Cain, Photographer. I took up photography about 20 years ago.

What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
I find that many people are attracted to old barns. They will often buy several images to make a ‘barn wall’ in their house.

How did you get started in your business?
I was looking for something to do outside of work and was grabbed by photography. After doing it for a while, decided no sense in taking pictures only for me to see and started doing art shows and galleries.

What do you think sets your designs apart from others?
I enjoy most all types of photography and have done work from macro and floral shots to street photography. Over time I have gravitated to doing mostly wildlife shots, landscapes and old barns. The latter has become my trademark specialty; I have a unique way of processing these pictures that I think sets me apart from others.

How does the city you live in influence your work?
I have lived in White Bear Lake for almost 5 years. I have found some amazing spots to photograph here; sunrises, wildlife. There are several sunrise shots on my website.

What are some inspirations for your work?
Driving around looking for barns! There is a certain moment with the right light and sometimes weather conditions when I know I have a great photo! I will often go back to a location several times to take the shot in different light, different seasons, etc.
Check out more of Rachel's beautiful work online, and be sure to stop by her booth at the Minneapolis Gift & Art Expo, November 3-5, 2017 at the Minneapolis Convention Center!
