Michael Hatten's Sacred Earth Studios

Your Bio

I have been photographing Oregon since 2001. I mainly do landscapes.

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

I believe nature photographers get a front row seat to observe climate change and its tangeable effects on the land. With their cameras ready to record the proof. I feel a need at this time to preserve the land through my photos.

Reciently I've fallen in love with shooting Historical Architecture.
