I am a wedding, portrait, commission and fine art photographer based on Lopez Island in Washington State.
Photography is a lifelong love. I started photographing seriously at age 14 and have never stopped. In middle school, one of my teachers started a photo club and setup a darkroom. I was immediately drawn to photographing people; finding ways to capture moments, expressions, joys and, in my own way, create a vision of life.
In 2005, I photographed my first wedding on the shore of the Hudson River in upstate New York. After graduating from Bard College with a Bachelor of Arts in Photography, I lived abroad for several years photographing in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. The further I travelled from the Pacific Northwest, the more I knew I would return one day. In early 2011, I moved back to Lopez Island where I live with my wife, Heather.
I work primarily in the Pacific Northwest, but am always happy to travel for clients.
When I am not photographing, I can often be found hiking, producing events at our local arts center or at a potluck with friends.
I hope you enjoy viewing my photographs. Please do not miss my fine art images at www.rsharrison.com.
