The Palouse is a photographer’s dream. Graphic landscapes, character-filled barns, rolling hills, a fence made of metal wheels, old cemeteries (well, old for the west coast) and, of course, the unequaled view from Steptoe Butte. The possibilities are endless. You can literally spend the day driving the back roads and not run out of things to photograph. These and more make the rolling hills of the Palouse a bucket-list destination for many photographers.
I have been visiting the Palouse for over twenty years and leading workshops there for over a decade, and the Palouse is still one of my favorite places to photograph. The Palouse can be different every year. Crops rotate, barns collapse, I hear about a place I've never been. Each year I come back with images of things I've never seen before.
