Hello there. My name is Leah Hedberg. I’m a photographer.
I live in Hood River, Oregon, in the Columbia Gorge, where I photograph the surrounding natural beauty and do printmaking from my home studio.
I studied photography at Northern Arizona University. This was in the days of film, so I spent some time in darkrooms acquiring a sense of patience and mystery about the craft. I've worked in portraiture, commercial, and wedding photography.
Today, I work as an apprentice to the natural world here in Oregon, to serve others with visual art that creates a sense of solace and belonging. I photograph natural subjects like mosses, lichens, and conifer cones — and moments — like light falling in rainbows on a late afternoon wall. Once in awhile, a song comes from inside the thing I’m looking at, and time stands still.
Thank you for visiting my site. I’d love for you to sign up for my email newsletter (coming soon!) so we can stay in touch.
