The Cascade Center of Photography is excited to celebrate five years as a full service resource for photographers of all skill levels. This year the center is offering a Central Oregon based summer series on Nature and Landscape Photography.

  • Capture the Light, a weekend of shooting landscape photos and Photoshop editing instruction.
  • Night Sky evening and night photo workshop with a chance to try shooting the Milky Way in the clear Central Oregon night skies.
  • Painted Hills and Fort Rock photo workshops to capture the unique colors, textures and shapes of Central Oregon’s geologic wonderlands.
  • Last Light and Night workshop at the Fort Rock Historic Village and museum, playing with light and color in a historic western setting.

“2016 will be a full year of teaching new and experienced photographers the ins and outs of photography with our schedule of Oregon based workshops”, says founder Christian Heeb. “Central and Eastern Oregon is an amazing place to be a photographer, whether you are an amateur or professional. We have access to so many unique and gorgeous landscapes, big skies and interesting communities.”

The Cascade Center of Photography offers weeklong national and international travel photo tours, photography technique workshops, and photography services for hire, including portraits, commercial, architectural and lifestyle photography. Located on the Westside of Bend, the center has a fully equipped photo studio, gallery and meeting space.

The Center is  currently working on the 999 People of Central Oregon, a photo book showcasing the uniquely diverse and quirky culture of Central Oregon through portraits of its residents.
