We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
~Earl Nightingale

nature and landscape photography by Brad Mangas

As unbelievable as this may sound, it is not my goal for you to buy anything from me. It is much more important in the grand scheme of life for you to enjoy, appreciate, and hopefully respect our natural world. To truly want to make it better for your family, children, grandchildren, and future generations. How you chose to do that is your choice. I do though truly appreciate you being here. Hopefully, I can be of help. ~Brad

Today there are many places one can purchase nice pictures of nature so why would anyone chose me and my work over all the others? As a small single-person business there is only one person who shoulders all the responsibility. I can’t blame poor work on my assistant. I can’t blame poor customer service on the customer service department. I can’t blame the lack of knowledge on the technical support department. All fingers point right back at me. Nothing can take a small business down (in my opinion) quicker than a lack of honesty and integrity. I will be the first to admit I am not perfect and that I make mistakes. I can also say I do not hide or try to cover up mistakes, they are simply a part of life. The quicker they are identified the quicker they can be rectified. Over the years I have done some boneheaded things. Believe me, I have not forgotten. They have been valuable learning experiences. Experiences that have humbled me forevermore.

In addition to honesty and integrity, which I know do not come easily, I would like to believe it is because you like what I do. I have to face the fact that if you don’t like what I do you probably won’t be reading this anyway. I really am here to help put your mind at ease. Nobody will part with their money for something like wall art if they aren’t completely comfortable and know for sure they are getting a good deal. I get it, I am no different.

I take tremendous pride in what I do and how I do it. If you don’t feel completely satisfied with any purchase chances are I will feel even worse. That is why I have the guarantee that I do. One year no questions asked. If something is not right, I will make it right. My business is not “just” something I do, it is who I am as a person. 

I am a stickler for details. I admit I might go a little overboard when it comes to details. Then again details are what my art is really about. So I’m good with that.

I made a commitment two years after beginning my business to make large-format photographic art. I dabbled in small projects, small printed commercial products, and the idea of not attempting to produce large work. After all, producing large work, 30 inches and larger becomes much more demanding. A print that looks good even great at 12 inches can look horrible at 60 inches. With this commitment since 2008, I have consistently produced work from 24×36 inches up to 40×120 inches. I have even produced images used as printed wall murals of over 30 feet in length. 

Personal investment. Most who read this will not know me from Adam. But for anyone who does, and if you ask them there is a good chance they will tell you photography isn’t just something I do in my spare time, it is what I do and how I live all the time. I am committed to staying abreast of new technologies, techniques, and tools. If there is something I feel can improve my work I will explore it.

Personal Local Service

I am always trying to make the process of working with me as easy as possible. If you are interested in purchasing a single print for your home or multiple prints for a business or corporate setting I am happy to come and meet with you upon your request to discuss any option you are interested in. Or to offer suggestions for the space you are thinking about. There is no minimum purchase requirement for local service. This pertains to the immediate local area, up to approximately 100 miles from Topeka Kansas.

Personal Distant Service

For those with large-scale projects for home or business with an art project budget of $25K or more, I will schedule to come to your location anywhere in the Continental United States. Typically this will require flying to your destination and setting a day for us to meet, get to know each other, and for me to get to know your ideas and see the space. From suggestions of sizes, materials, final pieces, I will work personally with you to achieve exactly what you have envisioned. I accept only one large-scale project at a time so you will receive my complete attention from start to finish. When your art has been produced and is ready for installation I will have it shipped to your location. I will then return to oversee and assist in the complete professional installation process. I will oversee all professional design and installation services that may be needed so you don’t have to lift a finger. To inquire about large-scale personal service please reach out via email or give me a call so we can discuss your needs.

Since 2008 I have worked with private individuals as well as dozens of business, corporate, and professional clients. See our growing list of satisfied clients under the “Publications & Clients” tab here.
