Pete Alport Photography


I wrote the following after I shot this: What can I say? Well, I'm back from six days of a beyond incredible experience at the Oregon Symbiosis Eclipse Gathering. From my beautiful neighbors I carpooled/camped/shared with (I previously only knew them from conversations on our porches) to the strangers I met at the venue, everyone was kind, loving, generous, and grateful. As the eclipse entered totality, I became overwhelmed with emotion, along with the tens of thousands of people gathered around. Tears flowed down my face and the magnitude of energy from both the people and the universe was incomprehensible...nothing I've ever experienced before could be compared. The second photo shows a fraction of the people who were there, however, it does show the Natives who traveled from around the world to be at this very spot. Tribal members, both women and men, spoke and danced through the duration of the beginning of the eclipse, ending their message minutes before full totality. For those of you who think the eclipse was "no big deal," I ask you this: What is a big deal to you? To me, the power of the universe is far beyond anything the human race has created or will ever create. I hope with all my heart we all wake up each and every day with the intention to love, improve, show gratitude, and respect ourselves, one another, let alone the Universe. #oregoneclipsegathering --

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."
