I wanted to drop a quick note to let my followers know that I’m currently being featured in a Photo Contest with the Ramada Hotel in Kingman, Arizona. Winners of the contest will have their photography featured in their rooms and around the property as a part of ongoing renovations to take advantage of their position on Route 66. I’d sure appreciate it if you take a few moments to hop over to their webpage and vote for my photos; I have three featured and they are all currently in the Top 10!
No registration is required and it’s super quick – all you have to do is click on each picture (‘Rhys Martin’ is listed beneath my photos) and then the vote button on the next page. I am really excited about the prospect of having my work featured in one of the most well-known Route 66 towns in the west!
I should have a new post up soon chronicling my trip from Amarillo Texas back home to Tulsa in the coming days — stay tuned for that. Thanks again!
Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe.
After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world.
Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. In 2018 he published his first book, Lost Restaurants of Tulsa.
Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.
