Want to see more portraits? Here are some we posted last year.

The Road Ahead

Project Dayshoot was a journey that many photographers and videographers took together. As we share the fruits of that journey, we're inviting Oregonians to experience the state with us in a whole new way. Today's group of photos symbolize the journey we're on together as Oregonians.
