Our public lands are one of this countries greatest treasures; millions of acres of forests, rivers, deserts, and parks. The majority of this acreage lies in the American West where they have become deeply intertwined with the local population, they are our tie to the wildness of our past, they humble, and teach us to have respect for the natural world. Once again their fate is on rocky ground and to lose them would be to lose a large part of our national identity.
All images were taken on the public lands of the west with a toy Holga camera.

Patricia Davidson is an award-winning outdoor photographer specializing in landscape, commercial assignments and travel photography. She has been living on the Oregon Coast in USA for over 20 years. With a background in the visual arts and web development, she sets out to produce images that express her artistic vision as well as her love of nature and the outdoors.
How would you describe your artistic style? Colorful and vivid! I am very passionate about color images. When I’m in the outdoors, the color in nature really speaks to me. On occasion I will create a black and white image because I feel it really resonates better in monotones but, for the most part, I really love color photography. When I first became interested in landscape photography, I was drawn to seascapes because I lived on the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast. Then I diversified into more different types of landscapes. I would say that flowing water is what I love to photograph the most.

Finding the inspiration within you
by Ralph Nordstrom
Nature and art are what I grew up with and what I love.
My casual approach to photography became more focused when I took my first workshop in 2006. From that time on I have been on a journey – a journey of personal discovery. Because, as my photography evolves, as it improves, I learn more about myself. I’ve gained a lot of technical skills along the way, both in the field and in the darkroom (don’t worry, I shoot digital but I still call it the darkroom because it does the same thing and people don’t freak out like they sometimes do when I say “Photoshop”).
But the technical skills are just a means to creative expression which is what I really focus on. They are what I call the Creative Vocabulary that allows me to communicate what it is I have to say about the world.
And discovering new things in the world, in nature, and expressing them through my photographs is where I am on my journey today. The journey will never end; the destination is not clear and changes as I change. But then, isn’t it the journey and not the destination that’s important?
