My dad introduced me to canoes as a boy. We used them for camping, hunting, and cruising around. Fast forward a few decades and the paddle board enters my life...amazing what the elevation change in viewing height can do to your perspective of what lies beneath can see so much more being five to six feet higher.

Here is Brit, born and raised in Central Oregon and who's dad used to own a rafting company. I wanted to make this image happen and one of my friends was hanging out with her. He told me she was an avid surfer, paddle boarder, a lover of water. I presented the idea her, she was intrigued, and we made it happen. She might be the first person to have a paddle board on this part of the river? Who knows, doesn't really matter, and with the water temperature holding steady at 37 degrees, she was able to enjoy the clarity from an up close and elevated perspective.

The image you see is great for office spaces, restaurants, health care, any retail space with a wall. My clients who purchase photos with people in them all say the same thing, "having someone in the photo allows the viewer to imagine its them, being right there, transporting their being from wherever they are to what they see in the image."
