José Argumedo Diaz moves a 12' ladder to the next tree for cutting blight in a Cormice pear orchard. He's paid $9/hour by Meyer Orchards for the seasonal work. He likes working outdoors, but would prefer to have a year-round "steady" full-time job to support his family (a wife and three children). His employer, the Meyer family, has been growing and selling pears in Talent for 103 years.  Photo by Betty Udesen

Oregonians at Work

Oregonians do all sorts of different jobs, and today we're sharing with you images that show a wide variety: a swimming instructor, a Street Roots vendor, and a group of firemen.

Oregonians at Work: Social Media Contributors

Journalism has come a long way since 1983 - video, new technologies like Gigapan and 3D photography, and citizen journalism via social media are some of the changes that we incorporated into the 30th anniversary of Oregon Project Dayshoot. This week, we're sharing some images on the theme of Oregonians at work that were captured by members of the general public who posted on social media using our #dayshoot30 tag.

Oregonians at Work: Outside

July 15th fell on a Monday, so many of our participants set out to capture images of Oregonians at work. In this week's set of photos, we feature some Oregonians who are lucky enough to spend their working days outside.
