Using His Scene Machine Since 1986!
In 1986 Glen Ricks M.Photog. Cr., CPP bought his Scene Machine projected background system. And, he still uses it today! There have been several changes over the years - and Glen has kept up with those changes. He still prefers to use slides for creating his background. Winter time is a prime time for projected backgrounds. We tell our clients that “we can photograph you with green trees or fall leaves any time of the year!" Glen especially likes the abstract looks he gets the the system.
One of his photographs was accepted into PPA’s Imaging USA 2017 Loan Collection. It was made using the Scene Machine! (girl in blue)
Glen started his studio in 1979 and in 2002 he moved to his current location, his dream studio, a 100+ year old Victorian home on Main Street in American Fork, Utah. Today Glen Ricks Photography Inc. is considered one of the top portrait studios in Utah. It is recognized as a Business of Excellence.
It is our goal to create images that are customized to our clients’ desires. Glen has a beautiful camera room and portrait garden right on site. His portrait and wedding assignments have taken him as far away as Hawaii and Mexico City.
Glen’s local and national awards are numerous. He is currently recognized as one of only a handful of photographers in Utah holding the degrees of Master Photographer, Photographic Craftsmen and Certified Professional Photographer. He has won many awards for his photographic excellence including the prestigious National Kodak Gallery Award.

He is currently a member of the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce, the American Fork Chamber of Commerce and Rotary International and past president and current board member of the Intermountain Professional Photographers Association.
