Golden hour over the Oregon Coastline

Oregon Coast Photography Tour

Steve has had the biggest impact on my photography in the last 40 years. He’s a Pro, an Artist and an Educator.” Tom Hart, Ashland, Ohio

The Oregon Coast is a land of wide, sandy beaches, rugged headlands, eroded sea stacks, teeming tide pools, and some of the most famous marine views in the country. If you are a photographer looking for spectacular seascapes with steep cliffs dropping into churning surf on rocky beaches, the the Oregon Coast is the place you should visit. Bring a macro lens for the incredibly diverse marine and plant life, a telephoto for the sea birds, whales, and sea lions, and the lighthouses. Be sure to also bring a wide-angle for the magnificent seascapes.

Heceta Head Lighthouse, Oregon Coast

We'll meet up in Portland, Ore., and from there depart for Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia River. During the tour we will work our way down the coast photographing lighthouses, seabirds, rugged cliffs, and small seaside towns. With luck we may spot some whales. Wildflowers are usually in bloom as we get further south. The places we will visit have fabulous names like Cape Falcon, Cape Foulweather, Cape Lookout, Heceta, and Yaquina.

We will stay each night at a local motel in one of the many charming seaside towns. The first night in Cannon Beach, then Cape Kiwanda, Florence, and back to Lincoln City. On the final day we will photograph the area around Lincoln City and Otter Crest, then head back to Portland.
