Founded by award-winning and published photographer Erin Nelson in 2011, Duke & Gunder Studios LLC is making photographs that exist in the fine art world, commercial environments, and the family photo album.

"As a photographer, I like to concentrate on what it means to make a memory. Nostalgia is something that tugs at my soul constantly. I want to convey those feelings in new ways through photography to make lasting impressions and produce various memorable experiences. My inspirations include Norman Rockwell, Ansel Adams, Eastman-Kodak, and the American Dream of Manifest-destiny."
