We had the good fortune of connecting with Craig W. Cutler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Craig, what do you attribute your success to?
In a word … differentiation. Everyone can take a fabulous photo these days – portable technologies have become increasingly enabling – to a very good end, I decided, long ago, that I would have to be unique and have a completely and totally distinctive style. That has paid off immeasurably with business throughout the American West to designers and collectors with sales from Las Vegas, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Phoenix, Denver, Atlanta, High Point, Park City, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and even Manhattan. I use about 26 different kinds of software and have learned them all to know what does what and if I have a vision to create something in my head – I can execute it. Sometimes it just happens and sometimes it’s planned. It’s cool for me now as customers tell me they know it’s a ‘Cutler’ by my style – they see it somewhere and know – I love that. I am about to release a New Rodeo and Western Series in 2021 that was previewed via a virtual Gallery in Rhode Island recently – it’s crazy vibrant and energetic and Western Contemporary in style – so it fits so many of our local tastes and homes. I’ll keep you posted … Thanks for including me in VoyagePhoenix – Craig

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
It comes down to how excited you are. If you love what you do – you’ll be awesome and people will recognize that energy. Even if you are just starting to love what you do – keep to it – it will all come together. I have always loved technology and creativity – so for me, I was lucky.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’d take them to Jerome. Preferably by motorcycle – I ride a Ducati – frees me up, always. I’d find a great place to sleep under the stars and enjoy the solitude. There’s some great places to eat and drink also – and a rich history in Jerome.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
For sure my clients … they have encouraged me throughout my career and, out of pure kindness, promote me to others.
