Bob Felderman is a retired U.S. Army Brigadier General with 36 years in the Army, Air Force and National Guard. Upon returning from 6 years of active duty to Dubuque, Iowa in 2010, friends, family and entertainers began calling him “General Bob”. In selecting the proper name for his photo business, his daughter (a professional photographer) recommended it was appropriate to honor of the men and women military Veterans with whom he served proudly with around the world – thus became General Bob Photography.
As a professional independent entertainment photographer and writer, his photos range from entertainment events to landscapes to portraits to travel locations to commercial photography. General Bob has had the opportunity to meet & photo entertainment greats such as the former Davy Jones of the Monkee’s, B.B. King, Gregg Allman, Pat Benatar, Don Felder (formerly of Eagles), Bret Michaels, Peter Frampton, Rick Derringer, Rodney Carrington, Steve Lukather, Rick Springfield, John Tesh, Jewel, President Barrack Obama, Kari and Billy, Louis Prima Jr., Lita Ford, Yahov Smiroff, Frank and Danielle of American Pickers; and great bands Little River Band, Hairball, Spazmatics, Drive-by Truckers, Red Hot Chili Pipers, Fuel, Here come the Mummies; and many artists that perform as tributes to Johnny Cash, Red Skelton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zee Zee Top, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Hairball, Elvis, Styx, Journey, Cream and many more. He has performed as a media photographer for numerous entertainment and style magazines, including a gig as White House Photographer for local Dubuque events.
Gerald Marella is a nature photographer who enjoys all aspects of God’s creation. Gerald especially enjoys connecting with a subject which allows him to create a more intimate photograph. Although he likes to photograph mainly in the Tri-State area, he also likes to travel to different locations to photograph migrating species as well as landscape, cityscape, and local culture. Gerald is currently a member of the Dubuque Camera Club.
