A guide to the natural landmarks of Oregon by Greg Vaughn
I'm often asked of locations around Oregon where my photos are taken. After reading through Greg Vaughn's excellent book Photographing Oregon - A guide to the natural landmarks of Oregon I am glad to know that I have a single answer for them. "Buy the book". And this is The Book when it comes to Oregon's landscape photo opportunities.
Not only is Greg an excellent writer he's also an wonderful photographer. his book is filled with easy to understand descriptions of how to get to "the beautiful locations found in coffee table books, posters, calendars, and travel magazines".
"Photographing Oregon is a comprehensive guide to photographing the natural wonders throughout the state of Oregon. With more than 300 pages of information and over 240 color photographs, the book tells not just where to go, but also when to be there for the best conditions, and includes suggestions on how to capture the best photos in locations all over this beautiful state." Each location has a description of the location, a photo that represents nicely the area as well as directions and estimated time of travel.
It's my opinion that every landscape photographer should have a copy of this book in their backpacks. Even if you're not a photographer and just enjoy exploring all that Oregon has to offer in the form of scenery, you should have this book.
Ask for Photographing Oregon at your favorite local bookseller either by title or ISBN # 978-0916189181. You can also order the book, in either print or Kindle version, from Amazon.com.
