A Joyful Celebration of Washington's Beautifully Diverse Landscapes
From the majestic Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound, where water meets and defines continent and city, to soaring volcanic peaks, to the dry and high desert plateaus in the east, Washington’s landscapes are as diverse as they are beautiful. Here, the award-winning team of photographers at Photo Cascadia celebrates Washington in all its splendor. Washington,Evergreen is a journey across the broad vistas and small, hidden marvels of one state’s indelible glory.
The seven photographers of the collective known as Photo Cascadia, Erin Babnik, Sean Bagshaw, David Cobb, Adrian Klein, Kevin McNeal, Chip Phillips, and Zack Schnepf, all live in the Pacific Northwest and have dedicated their careers to sharing its natural beauty while encouraging stewardship and conservation efforts. Active members of the photographic community, they regularly teach workshops and lead group photography tours throughout the region and beyond. Collectively they have mounted dozens of exhibitions and have received many industry and juried awards. Their images have been published in Digital Photo Magazine, Digital Photographer, National Geographic, Nature’s Best Photography, Northwest Magazine, OnLandscape, Outdoor Photographer, Outside, Popular Photography and Imaging, and elsewhere. Erin Babnik is a Canon Explorer of Light.
