Day 1 - Arrive in Portland / Starvation Creek / Lost Lake / Hood River
We set out by private transfer from Portland, Oregon to the world-famous Columbia River Gorge - the first of the Seven Wonders of Oregon we explore - and photograph the colorful and little known, Starvation Creek. Afterwards, we'll head to our fantastic hotel, check in, and have a great dinner before heading to Lost Lake and capture the sunset with spectacular Mt. Hood reflecting in the glossy lake. Mt. Hood is the second of the Seven Wonders of Oregon that we photograph and this magnificent landscape will leave a lasting impression. After shooting, we'll return to our hotel in Hood River.
Day 2 - Panther Creek Falls / White River Falls / Hood River
Today we leave early and travel by private transfer to the otherworldly fantasyland of Panther Creek Falls. Words cannot describe just how amazing this location is and we explore it thoroughly. After shooting, we will have lunch and edit images throughout the afternoon. After another delicious dinner, we will travel to White River Falls, an outstanding double-tiered waterfall that drops into a rugged basalt gorge near an abandoned hydroelectric power station that once energized and irrigated the region. We'll shoot the falls and capture the incredible sunset, then return to our hotel.
Day 3 - Ecola State Park / Hug Point / Cannon Beach / Seaside
After breakfast and editing images, we travel by private transfer to Seaside where we'll check into our next hotel and have lunch.

Day 4 - Abiqua Falls / Salem
After breakfast, we travel by private transfer to Salem, check into our next incredible hotel, have lunch, then continue to sensational Abiqua Falls. Abiqua Falls drops 92' over a columnar basalt amphitheater that's covered in redish-orange and green lichens and mosses. This location is jaw-dropping and easily one of the premier waterfalls in Oregon. We'll shoot the falls all afternoon then return to our hotel in Salem and have another fantastic dinner.
