Welcome to AdamSawyer.com. I am a father, writer, photographer, and tour guide, living in Portland, Oregon. When I moved to the area I was an Information Technology specialist with a well-paying job. The job was also soul-crushing. In an attempt to enjoy my livelihood, I quit the office job with the intent of somehow making a living at enjoying the great outdoors. Now I work as a “Resident Expert”, or tour guide for Portland Walking Tours. As a freelance writer and photographer my work has appeared in the Portland Mercury as well as Northwest Travel, Portland Monthly, Columbia River Gorge, and Backpacker Magazines. My first guidebook, Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon for Falcon Guides, was published in July 2014. I also pen articles as the Portland Hiking Examiner for Examiner.com and authored the bi-weekly column Portland Family Outdoors for Craigmore Creations. I co-hosted the KEEN HybridLife Radio Show for its duration, and now serve as an ambassador for the company. The paychecks might be smaller, but I’ve never been happier.
My objective is to share through words and images, a unique perspective on my favorite places in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
All of my published writings and photos will be posted on this site, as well as direct links to online works.
