While staying on the Baja California peninsula I got the offer of a friend to stay at his house in Los Barriles. So I took a road trip to the Sea of Cortez and in exchange, I would provide him with some photos he could use on AIRBNB.
My friend Barry has a reggae band called JaSkaMon who are playing all around Oregon. These photos here show my first Road Trip with the band. We went to Portland for some gigs but I also joined Barry to several other locations.
Otis is a pretty small community in Oregon and the people there live scattered all over the place and in the woods. There is actually just a diner with a gas station so you won’t find much action in this town but that suddenly changed when RUN 21 showed up.
My first job as a photographer in Oregon was to shoot some photos for the lawn service. The company was owned by a friend of mine and he needed the pictures for his website. This project gave me the opportunity to see more of the beaches of Oregon.
My first encounter with Oregon I had in Otis which is close to Lincoln City. My friend picked me up from the airport at night so I saw a little bit of Portland but my real first impressions I got from Otis. I took photos all the way. Here is the first collection.
Todos Santos is a small but very touristic town close to San Pedrito Beach. It is one of the small but cozy little places at the south end of the Baja California peninsula. Once in awhile I went there to buy supplies but I also shot some pictures.
San Pedrito Beach is all about surfing and hardcore chilling but suddenly the area transformed into a party for electronic music and hundreds of people showed up. I volunteered as a photographer and got free access. Here is a collection of my pictures.
While staying at San Pedrito Beach we encountered also a little crisis. If you think it is only fun and surfing than you are wrong. One of our neighbors found a box with puppies when he took a leak at night. This lead to a situation we called the “Puppy Crisis”.
This is the 2nd entry about San Pedrito Beach and once more I like to present some photography of the beach and its community. This time friends we met on our Road Trip joined us to hang out on the beach for a while. Here are photos of that period.
This was my first encounter with Playa de San Pedrito. On my Road Trip Photography Blog, you will find many more entries about San Pedrito because I started to feel like home there after a while. These are the first pictures I took of this surf spot.
