Just Hours From My Front Door
Images of the Pacific Northwest

About the Book
As a location photographer I've told clients for years that I can walk out my front door and within just hours be on almost any terrain on the planet. Do you want beaches? Which kind? Rocky, sandy, grey or tan? Pebbles, boulders or cliffs? Do you want forest? Rain, ponderosa, dry? Mountains? With snow or without, jagged or smooth, above treeline or below? I've got amber waves of grain that could be Kansas. There are deserts. And water. Ocean, lakes or rivers? Huge, placid or whitewater?
And the list goes on and on.
These pages are a sampling of my experiences traveling all over this incredibly diverse region on commercial and personal assignments.
