Central Oregon Photographers Share Their Inspirational Adventures

These days, everyone has a very high-quality camera in the palm of their hand. But capturing a great photo is still a skill perfected by a few folks with an eye for taking their followers on a journey beyond an Instagram post. Photographers use the medium to inspire through adventure.

We’re lucky in Central Oregon to have a large group of talented photographers who set out for adventure every day and are willing to share with us – and you – their beautiful images. They’ve been kind enough to let us share the images over the past couple of years on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but many of you have wondered about more of their images and whether they’re available for prints.

You’ll notice some of the favorite spots include Smith Rock State Park, hikes along our high lakes, our numerous waterfalls and, of course, the majestic Mt. Bachelor.

Here’s their information below – just click on their names to see their websites or Facebook pages and feel free to contact them directly to ask about print purchasing. You can also learn more about special photography classes, tours and events some of them offer from time to time during the year. Luckily, there’s plenty of lodging options for you in Central Oregon should you want to plan your visit around those events or just visit to snap some photos of our natural beauty.

And stay tuned – to where they’ll take us next!
