About Copper Cactus Graphics

Steve Riedler

My name is Steve Riedler and I'm the owner of Copper Cactus Graphics. I am a Nebraska native who fell in love with the natural beauty of the state of Arizona and decided to move to the Phoenix area in the late 1980's. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology from the University of Nebraska. I've spent 25+ years as a software engineer and programmer for various companies in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa and Chandler. I also have a Computer Graphics certificate from Collins College, specializing in Flash, Photoshop and Web Design.

I am a visual person, therefore it's natural that I enjoy graphics and photography. I love using Flash and Photoshop to make custom graphics, designs and photographic art. With its vast array of canyons, mountains and desert fauna and flora, Arizona is a photographers dream. You just can't take a bad picture of the Superstition mountains or the Grand Canyon. Nothing quite compares with the feeling I get when I'm out on a hike, round a bend and see the spectacular scenery of the desert Southwest sprawled out before me. Capturing the beauty of nature in all its splendour is a true thrill. Although I photograph mostly desert terrain, I also enjoy taking pictures of oceans, mountains and interesting architecture. You can view some of my photos at CaptureMyArizona.

I have two Cafepress stores; the Copper Cactus Graphics Store, to showcase some of my Arizona, history, science, nature and animal related graphics and photographic creations on all kinds of merchandise from t-shirts to stickers to mugs and the Cyphernaut Store, featuring world language and culture related designs on the same range of products.

My hobbies include:hiking, running, swimming, scuba diving, most sports, languages, writing, art, traveling, and photography. I love reading books about history, nature, and all branches of science. I have also enjoyed volunteering with the Arizona Animal Welfare League, the Sierra Club and the Arizona Game and Fish Department, especially on their owl, bat and desert tortoise projects.
