Come see us in Hood River in June!

Hosted by the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River and with the generous support of Pro Photo Supply, we're excited to announce an exhibit of our images for the month of June. The month-long exhibit will kick off on Thursday June 5th at 7pm with an evening presentation by four Hood River photographers who participated in the project: Paloma Ayala, Peter Marbach, Thomas Boyd, and Blue Ackerman. You can see a little taste of their work below. We hope to see you at the Columbia Center for the Arts in June!

Perspective - From Below

Oregonians have a unique way of looking at the world. In general, we're friendly, open-minded and creative. To celebrate our perspective in life, today we're sharing a few photos that take advantage of a unique perspective on their subjects.

It's a long climb up the rope ladder as Columbia river pilot Tim Harris heads for the gangway rigged on the side of the container ship Hanjin Haiphong. Deckhand Dustin Everson of the pilot launch Connor Foss keeps an eye on Harris as the transfer takes place. Harris will relieve a Columbia River Bar pilot who brought the ship in from the ocean.
