    Location Information

    The area outside my front door is a treasure chest of biodiversity and wild, rugged beauty.  Spanning parts of Southern Oregon & Northern California, the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion is home to an abundance of wild rivers, vast tracts of wilderness, a diverse array of coastlines, giant redwoods, old growth forests, rocky peaks, alpine lakes, and even sage and juniper desert hills.

    Apart from being a stunning & globally unique region, this an outrageous and underutilized location for all types of photo shoots.  And it's a place I know inside and out.  So whether your photo shoot needs a rainforest backdrop, a vast desert, rugged granite peaks, or rolling blue ocean waves--or all of these--it's my backyard.
