is a photographic artist with a unique vision of
the American West.
His images possess a special blend of light, color, and drama that penetrate the very soul of our cowboy
heritage. One can almost hear horses hooves pounding old trails,
the creaking under-carriage of stagecoaches, and the crackle of a
campfire as the hands gather to share some tales. Raised in Arizona, Marona is right at home with ranch life. He
doesn't use models. "The men and women that help us create our photographs are real working cowboys that still carve their livings
from the land and livestock." Marona's fine art photography can be seen at the National Cowboy
Hall of Fame and fine galleries across the nation. The artist lives with his wife and two sons in Durango, Colorado, his
home of eighteen years.
