I enjoy documenting events the most. Every day is something different and forces me to be a problem solver in order to deliver to my clients, the best possible final product.

What are some of your favorite places in Portland to take photographs?

Connor M, Portland Photographer

Connor M

How did you get started with photography?

When I was 11, my dad gave me his dads Konica 35mm with full lens support and filters. I was blown away. I knew that I had found my outlet during some pretty dark times of my life. Instead of running away from the light, I wanted to capture it. Make something from it. I started to develop my own film when I was 14, and on my 15th birthday, I was gifted my first DSLR. I was approached for my first paid gig the same year, and the rest is history.

What type of shoots do you enjoy doing the most?

In all honesty, I don't have a favorite type of photo shoot or photo shoot I enjoy the most. Every shoot is a challenge and exciting. I get super amped for every type of shoot. If I did have to pick one though, I think my favorite type of shoot is landscape photography. I enjoy very much taking photos of clouds and light, and it makes for a challenge to read the weather just right!

What are some of your favorite places in Portland to take photographs?

One of my favorite spots in Portland to photograph is atop the OHSU tram. Its the perfect vantage point to see Mt. Hood & Mt. St. Helens.
