Mighty Killers in the Northwest

Travel, LifestyleSilas SaoComment

Living in the Portland, I get to meet all kinds of creatives. I had the pleasure of meeting Chris a couple of months ago when we were introduced by fellow photographer and common friend David.

I asked Chris to help me out with a project for the Might Killers Explore Tee an MK Basic Cap. Accompanied by my other friends Nick, Natalie and Leanna we road tripped it out to the Oregon Coast to catch sunset. As we arrived at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City, I could tell this was going to be another beautiful Oregon summer sunset.

It wasn’t until we pulled onto the beach did I find out this was Chris’ first trip to Cape Kiwanda. In awe from the beautiful scenery, Chris’ expressions began to reignite my inspiration for this place. I’ve been to Cape Kiwanda more times than I can count on my fingers, but this time it was different. I got to help someone experience it for the first time. That in itself can be inspiring for me. Adventuring with people to places I’ve photographed before can help me find a more unique angle of a similar location. A new mind can bring all kinds of new ideas. It’s an awesome feeling.

Let me share with you what we brought back from Cape Kiwanda.

Coastal Wasteland

Don't ever listen to those people who question why you bring your camera. You never know when you'll get that perfect opportunity for some awesome shots.

On this trip to Cape Kiwanda, I was suppose to model for my friend Bryan but the weather was not in his favor, so I took this opportunity to get some photos. Luckily, I brought my camera along and Silas was down to go explore around. We hiked up the huge sand hill and made our way towards the coastal point. On the way, I was really digging how the rock and sand looked with all the moisture from the rain. I decided to turn this adventure into more of a story and have Silas be the main character. This is how I turned this coastal range into a wasteland. Enjoy.
