Tyler Boley is a native of Seattle, WA, and has been making photographs since the 1950’s. He spent much of his teens and twenties in music. By the 1980’s, he was seriously active in fine art landscape photography taking workshops with Ruth Bernhard, Marsha Burns, Micheal Burns, Lucien Clergue, Linda Conner, Judy Dater, Frank Gohlke, Phillip Hyde, Mark Klett, Tom Millea, Richard Misrach, Ann Noggle, John Sexton, Jerry Uelsmann, and Brett Weston. At the legendary Friends of Photography he was exposed to the highest standards in image and traditional craft, and began exhibiting at the Silver Image and Equivalence Galleries in Seattle, and juried shows around the country. Selected exhibits since then are Lightbox Gallery Astoria OR, Seattle Art Museum Gallery, Benham Gallery, Bainbridge Arts and Crafts Gallery, and is in collections at Chicago Museum of Contemporary Photography and the Yale University Library, Google, Group Health Cooperative art collection purchase, and Tacoma Art Museum. He has been published in Lenswork, B&W Magazine, and twice in The Hand Magazine. Tyler taught workshops at Cone Editions in Vermont, the Digital Stop in Berkeley California, the Newspace Center For Photography, and at his previous fine art print shop, Custom Digital.
An early innovator with various ink solutions for B&W photography, also an early beta tester and implementer of color management and color ink printing, he is considered an expert digital printer.
