About Oregon Focus

  • As a photojournalist, photo editor and consultant based in Portland, I’ve heard from many working photographers that in this digital world there is a hunger for connection, both in our work and in our day-to-day lives. I regularly write about this in a global sense, and I want to put it into action IRL, as they say.
  • I work with photographers, nonprofits, businesses around the world, but Oregon is my home. My goal is to make Oregon Focus a hub for our state’s photo community, a showcase for our own individual visions, where those of us who make and admire photography can gather and collaborate — sharing ideas, information and inspiration.
