Columbia River Gorge & Oregon Coast


May 17 - 22, 2019

Beauty beyond words. Landscape only seen in your dreams . . .TIME TO WAKE UP!!


This is a photographic opportunity you'll sure not want to miss, nor will you ever forget! Join me as we wander through The Columbia River Gorge and all along the Oregon Coast, some of North America's most stunning scenery.

The PNW offers such a variety of landscapes to experience and photograph. We'll capture sunrises and sunsets along the breathtaking coast of Oregon, the seemingly endless waterfalls in the lush valley of the Columbia River Gorge and we'll photograph lakes that reflect the incredibly awesome Mt. Hood.

This amazing Soul Road Trip includes your lodging (7 nights), all transportation during the trip, dinners, breakfasts, snacks, entry/park fees, Soul Road Trips hoodie and ball cap. Your airfare, lunches, souvenirs, alcohol, etc. are your additional expense. DO NOT rent a car as we will be shuttling your selves all around, including service to and from the airport. Fly in/out of Portland International Airport.

Meet up me in Portland. We'll then head to Cannon Beach, Astoria, Cape Meares, Rockaway Beach, Coos Bay, Cape Perpetua, Thor's Well, Bandon Beach, Crater Lake, Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge. All along the Gorge are numerous waterfalls we'll be able to photograph. Some are right off a parking lot and some a short hike. It's surely a whirlwind tour of Oregon but well worth your time and investment. Steve and I will offer as much in the field education as you can handle. We'll even offer image critiques and Lightroom and Photoshop post-processing techniques and demonstrations along the way as well. What a bunch of education this is!!
