Adrian Klein has a passion for the outdoors and landscape photography that is endless. He has traveled the parks, shorelines and wilderness capturing images that represent each area through his own artistic eye from the curbs to the far off trails. He strives for continuing education everyday in photography to in turn allow him to capture and display the best photos possible. Adrian is also an active member in the Photographic community including his recent tenure on Professional Photographers of Oregon Board of Directors and leading the effort to help create Photo Cascadia with this amazing group of talented photographers. Recent awards/juried exhibtions include PPO, PPA, ICPA and Center for Fine Arts. Besides his personal adventures for photography he very much enjoys helping others learning more about photography and the outdoors. See this website or nwphototours.com for listings of group workshops available or contact him directly for one-on-one outings.
A common question I get is what is my photography gear list. Currently my gear that I take on most outings includes: Canon 5D, Canon 17-40L f/4.0, Canon 24-70L f/2.8, Canon 70-200L f/4.0, Gitzo GT2541, Acrateach Ultimate Ballhead, Hoya Pro1 Polarizer, Singh-Ray GND's for 2 and 3 Stops, Canon Remote Cable Release, Storm Jacket, Microfiber Cleaning Cloth and Dust-Aid. Depending on whether it's a day hike or multi-day roadtrip this list could be slightly less more. For example I will always take 2 cameras and 2 tripods on multi-day trip (except for backpacking or long hikes!). It sure would be a serius disappointment to travel hundreds if not thouands of miles only to be stuck with broken equipment and no chance to photograph.
