What you'll do
We will be exploring downtown Portland from a photographer's (me!) perspective. I'll show you interesting backdrops coupled with beautiful natural light so that you can break out your camera for some great photos. I will also take candid photos of you so that you have memories from the experience. No photography skills required! I will provide you digital files of five portraits of you from the outing.
I am a 31-year old photographer living in Portland, Oregon, and I own and operate my own photography business. Originally from the Midwest, I have lived in many places since my upbringing in a small, Iowa town. I'm a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, and during my three years in Nicaragua, I found that *people* will forever and always be my preferred photography subject. When I'm not taking photos, I'm out hiking with my pup, going to a live music show (Doug Fir Lounge and Mississippi Studios are my favorite Portland venues), or experimenting in my kitchen. Soy bilingue y hablo espanol.
Where you'll be
We will be walking around downtown Portland and spending time in the infamous Pearl District. I'll show you places like Powell's Books, Old Town Chinatown, Pioneer Courthouse Square, and the Portland Art Museum. These places are great for and afternoon photo walk, and we'll stop along the way to take snapshots.
