Riverside Animal Hospital!

I’m thrilled to announce that my fine art landscape photographs are  currently being exhibited at the recently opened Riverside Animal Hospital, located at 25 NW Olney Avenue in Bend, Oregon.  Riverside Animal Hospital is located in the same building where Deschutes Veterinary Clinic was formerly located.  Although some of the employees are the same, this is a brand new Veterinary clinic with new ownership and management.  Situated in an excellent location on the west side of Bend, Oregon, Riverside Animal Hospital is a wonderful facility in which to display my work and and it is an amazing veterinary clinic for your pets.

Bend Oregon Veterinarians

Riverside Animal Hospital, Bend Oregon

Riverside Animal Hospital was opened just weeks ago by my wonderful wife, Dr. Debbie Putnam and two partners, Dr. Cody Menasco and Dr. Sarah Cummings.  These three veterinarians have well over 30 years of combined experience, exceptional communications skills and they are backed by an amazing technical staff!  The doctors of Riverside Animal Hospital have put in an amazing about of work over the last few months in the process of establishing this exceptional veterinary clinic.  I know because much of their work was done in the dining room of our little home!  They tirelessly, discussed, negotiated, planned, laughed and and organized in the process of establishing Bend Oregon’s newest veterinary clinic.  Below are the founders and Veterinarians at Riverside Animal Hospital.

In addition to skilled veterinarians, Riverside Animal Hospital has an amazing staff.  When Riverside’s clients walk in the front door, they are greeted by the smiling face, of Zachary, the receptionist and behind him my Print, “Mt. Jefferson Wilderness”  The print is huge, over five feet tall and looks beautiful in the reception area.  I should note that in addition to being an exceptionally skilled receptionist, Zachary bakes fresh cookies for the clients, infusing the clinic with their aroma.  Nice!

My fine art landscape photographs can be found in several areas of the clinic but none of the photographs are quite as impressive as the “Mt. Jefferson Wilderness” print in the reception area!  To learn more about Riverside Animal Hospital and its impressive staff, please visit their website, Bend Oregon Veterinarians.

Print Donation for Highland Elementary School

Friends and family of mine are well aware that my wonderful daughter, Emma, attended the Highland Magnet School at Kenwood, located just blocks away from our home in Bend, Oregon.  Highland is a K-5th grade school that incorporates the Scottish Storyline method of teaching.  I can’t say enough positive things about this wonderful school and [...]

New Mt Rainier National Park Fine Art Photograph!

Mt Rainier National Park

As many of you know, I live in Bend, Oregon, the hub of Central Oregon and One of the most amazing regions of the United States.  As a professional landscape photographer, there are countless photo opportunities in the Bend area so leaving Central Oregon for work reasons can be hard to justify.  A quick visit [...]

The Best new Oregon Landscape Photos for 2014!

Metolius River

I’ve never done a year in review post before and frankly, the idea scared me.  Not because I am not proud of my work, I am quite proud.  My trepidation stemmed from the fact that, in most years, I don’t put out a lot of new work.  Please don’t perceive this “lack of new work” [...]

Oregon’s magical Tamolitch Pool, aka, the “Blue Pool”!

Tamolitch Pool, AKA the Blue Pool on the McKenzie River

This past year, I have found myself gravitating towards photography locations that have lured me in a a spiritual way.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always felt spiritual sensations when in the presence of natural beauty but in past years, I’ve primarily been drawn to grand landscapes…think dramatic clouds, snow-covered mountains with wildflower filled foregrounds. [...]

Beautiful New Metolius River Print!

I will be unveiling a new fine art photograph at tomorrow(11/7/14) nights First Friday Art Walk and I couldn’t be more excited.  I have loved the Metolius River since the first time I explored its shores but frankly, it is a river whose exceptional beauty is photographically elusive. Old growth conifers, brilliantly colored water, verdant [...]

Top 10 Fall color Hikes in the Bend, Oregon area!

Tamolitch Pool, aka "The Blue Pool"

I’ve probably thought about this list of the best fall color hikes in the Bend, Oregon area way too much.  I love Bend and the Central Oregon area as much as anyone and as a landscape photographer, I’ve done an extraordinary amount of hiking and scouting in the Bend area for photography purposes.  So, with [...]

Oregon’s Beautiful Mt. Jefferson!

Oregon's Beautiful Mount Jefferson

Oregon’s Mt. Jefferson is quite possibly my favorite mountain in the world.  Mt. Jefferson is stunning, rugged and remote.  It holds lots of snow in summer which tends to make it more photogenic than some other Oregon volcanoes.  Also, it is loaded with wildflowers.  Mt. Jefferson, when viewed from the west and looking east, has [...]
