About Adrian Klein

Photographer

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Adrian Klein and I am lucky to call the Pacific Northwest home. Born and raised in Oregon, I live within a 100 miles of the Pacific Ocean, the Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood Wilderness and the high desert of Oregon. My love of nature has nurtured my love of photography. I have spent over a decade fine tuning my photography skills and building a connection to nature that allowed me to create the photos you see on this website. My experiences and contributions are many including; working as a portrait and wedding photographer, contributing member of Professional Photographers of Oregon board of directors 2007-2009, landscape workshop leader, active team member of Photo Cascadia, and building alliances with a number of companies.

This is an older video produced by f-stop yet gives a good intro about me relating to what I love about nature photography and the outdoors.

Alliances

The following companies and teams I have been fortunate to collaborate with and receive support over the years. I am not an influencer supporting any brand that shows up at my doorstep. I only support products and services that I truly use and believe are also of value to others in photography.

Equipment

My photography is digital using Canon camera equipment, mainly the R5 body with L series lenses. I use a limited number of filters, mostly from Breakthrough Filters. My tripod and ballhead is from Colorado Tripod Company. My camera bags are from f-stop gear. I don't think the gear makes the photographer yet "what camera do you use" is still a question I get which is why I note it here.
