As a studio comprised of many outdoor enthusiasts and native Oregonians, the devastation of last year's Eagle Creek fires weighed heavy on our hearts. With the holiday season quickly approaching, we decided to forgo traditional gifts and instead put our holiday budget and time toward relief efforts in the Gorge.

In close collaboration with Friends of the Columbia Gorge, we created "Caretakers of the Gorge" — a tribute to the resilience of the Columbia Gorge in the aftermath of the Eagle Creek fire. The individual profiles represent the deep connections to the Gorge shared by those who love and care for this beautiful landscape and its communities.
