Oregon’s Beach Bill was passed in 1967 allowing free beach access to everyone. It’s unique as far as state laws go, and it’s one of the many things that make Oregonian’s proud. It also makes my young daughter and her puppy very happy. The beach is a pretty amazing place to photograph. It’s the perfect setting for a family portrait, for candid images of children and dogs playing on the beach, or even for that standout personal branding headshot.
Orcas Island is the largest island in the San Juan archipelago, a chain of islands located in the Salish Sea in Northwest Washington. One of my favorite places on the Island is Rustic Falls, a small waterfall along Cascade Creek inside Moran State Park on Orcas Island. The water gracefully cascades about 10 feet into a shallow pool. And a large tree rests at the top of the falls, providing for a unique and interesting photograph. This image, entitled “Forces of Nature” recently merited at the Professional Photographer Association’s International Print Competition.
