Location


I love photographing in the outdoors, nature is beautiful. Fitton Green Natural Area in Corvallis, Oregon, has become one of my favorite spots to photograph.

When a client asks for suggestions on locations within the Corvallis area and depending on what they are looking for as far as background, Fitton Green is my number #1 suggestion.

It's always an adventure for me to shoot at this location; the panorama view, the breeze, the mountains, and the golden hour at Fitton Green is beautiful and a breathtaking experience. It is a little of a hike to get to the top, I'd say it's approximately less than a half mile. I'd recommend being prepared because during the summer it's slightly windy and a little chilly. There is a little bit of traffic, don't worry it's just hikers, runners, and other photographers hiking up. I'm telling you it's a popular area during the summer.


Below is some of my work captured at Fitton Green. The photos I'm providing are a good reference to provide you with an idea of what to expect during that time of the year. It's not always sunny during the summer, sometimes it's partly cloudy. I would suggest to always check the weather. The photos of the Olson Family were taken in late October. The Conroy Family's photos were taken in late August. The photos of young Lukas were taken in late June. Photos of beautiful Callie were more in late September. The photos are a good reference to provide you with an idea of what to expect during that time of the year.


When it comes to photography locations, for me it's always important to ask clients what exactly they are looking for as far as backgrounds and locations, because I believe it adds a meaningful value to their photographs that they will cherish their whole life.
