Michael Hatten's Sacred Earth Studios

I have been photographing The Northwest since 2001. I've mainly done landscapes.

I am drawn to the outdoors because I feel most at peace in nature. I would love to do a book someday of all the places I've visited. Maybe with a focus on the environment.

I believe nature photographers have a front row seat to observe and record the tangeable effects climate change will have on the land.

I also love shooting Historical Architecture.
