Favorite places and subjects to photograph around Bend?
Sparks Lake is my muse, and I long for her during those long cold winter months when the Cascade Highway is closed and access denied. I feel the same way about the Deschutes River (all of it!)

What’s the best thing about being in Bend?
First and foremost, the awe-inspiring natural beauty that surrounds Bend makes it the best place to live in America. The town itself is hip, cool, and vibrant – and it’s the perfect place to raise a family, run a business, and live a healthy life.

Favorite places and subjects to photograph around Bend?
The country roads east of town, specifically off of McGrath Road.  Ever since a young age, I have always been interested in old ranching equipment and the ranching culture.  East of Bend there are endless opportunities for old machinery, fence lines, and barns.  Because the landscape is rather flat and featureless, I find that area provides great light that travels long distances, giving me the amazing sunrise and sunset colors I search for while shooting.

What’s the best thing about being in Bend?
Bend provides the vast landscape and impressive scenery I have always been drawn to as a photographer and outdoor enthusiast. The combination of the surrounding High Desert and Cascade Range is amazing. Not to mention the weather and the skiing!  There is always a weather system on the horizon that is great for photographing, whether it’s pouring rain, snow, freezing fog, or simply dense clouds.  Because of the desert to our east, our sunrise light is particularly superb, and what better way to top off an early morning shoot than heading to Mt. Bachelor to make some turns.

Favorite places and subjects to photograph around Bend?
The landscapes of Central Oregon is the reason why I live here. There is an endless opportunity for photography, not to mention the seasons always changing. From autumn to winter, the mountains, waterfalls, and trees are always changing.

What’s the best thing about being in Bend?
Other than landscapes, the people of Bend is the best thing. A supportive community that really appreciates art. From First Friday to Last Saturday there is a wide variety of art, not only photography.
