Graphic Designer/Photographer, Self-Employed
Reggie Tidwell is an award-winning designer and photographer. He received his BFA in Graphic Design in 1997 from Maryville University in St. Louis. He’s worked with clients all over the world, helping them connect with their audiences. He’s passionate, not only about the creative process, but the industry of design. He is a steward of his design community, spending a fair amount of time connecting with other designers and geeking out on innovative ways to use design as a tool for communication.
He has been professionally photographing people and their environment, since 2004 and is an insured and FAA licensed remote pilot. For him, design and photography often overlap.
With a deep understanding of the need for philanthropy, Reggie has volunteered for the international non-profit, LEAF Community Arts, since May of 2006. He served 2017 as their Board President. In addition, Reggie does a pro-bono project each year for non-profits that are working for the greater good of humanity.
Reggie lives in Asheville, NC with his amazing wife and 4 kids, including new identical twins.

As a graphic designer and photographer, Reggie Tidwell found himself not embracing his photographer side and lacking the confidence to take on high-end projects and charge a respectable rate. Over the last 2 years, he has found his inspiration and is now earning as much as a photographer as with his design work. Reggie has also garnered the respect of photographers that he's always admired and even looked up to.
