About Tim Giraudier
Tim is a landscape and nature photographer who lives along the North Fork Willamette River, in the lush green of Oregon’s West Cascade Mountains. Having originally moved to Oregon from Hawaii in 1980, Tim’s love for the outdoors and natural world was instilled by his parents from an early age, a respect for Beauty, which continues to inform how he sees the world today.
Tim has now passionately photographed Oregon and the Pacific Northwest since 1993 when he received a Pentax 35mm SLR as a graduation present, and he has faithfully been carrying a camera ever since. In 2004, Tim officially began his photography business, Beautiful Oregon®, and within a year was able to let go of his day job and begin working full time as a photographer.
Whether photographing springtime wildflowers in the Willamette Valley, the volcanic peaks of Central Oregon, or the wild splendor of the Pacific Coast, Tim seeks to celebrate his love for Oregon and the Pacific Northwest and share this vision with others. When not enjoying photography fieldwork or printing in his Westfir Studio, Tim also likes to spend time researching subject matter, campfire cooking with friends, kayaking, skiing, fishing, mushroom hunting, river swimming and enjoying all those many things which makes this beautiful place we call home, so uniquely special.
