I was recently asked by my good friends at Really Right Stuff to write about an inspirational destination that means a lot to me. Naturally, the first destination that came to mind was the Columbia River Gorge. While the gorge itself is a stunner, the real charm lies with the vast amount of waterfalls that have formed throughout it. I’d explored a bunch of these waterfalls while living in Portland and have come to rely on many of them to help me break out of a creative funk or to kick out whatever stress I may had been experiencing. And, of course, there is the photography.

Considering that I’ve used a Really Right Stuff tripod for virtually every photo taken in the gorge, I was more than happy to share my experiences and lessons on how to get the most out of visiting this area. Be sure to give it a read for yourself and let me know if you have any questions about photographing in the Columbia River Gorge.
