Welcome to AdamSawyer.com. I am a father, an outdoor and travel writer, photographer, published guidebook author, and tour guide based out of Portland, Oregon. Professionally, I wrote as the Portland Hiking Examiner for Examiner.com and authored the bi-weekly column Portland Family Outdoors for Craigmore Creations. In addition to online writing for Travel Oregon, Red Tricycle, and Tillamook Coast, my work has appeared in Northwest Travel & Life, 1859, Portland Monthly, Cascade Journal, Canoe & Kayak and Backpacker Magazines.
I was the co-host of the KEEN HybridLife Radio Show for its duration and now serve as a Brand Ambassador for the company. I am the author of the guidebooks Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon and the Best Outdoor Adventures Near Portland. I am also a contributing author for the titles Hiking Waterfalls in Washington and the Best Dog Hikes Oregon, all for Falcon Guides. Tours I lead as a professional guide include the Epicurean Excursion and Flavor Street Food Cart tours for Portland Walking Tours and the Waterfalls & Wine tours for Evergreen Escapes. The paychecks might be smaller, but I’ve never been happier.
Through words and images, my objective is to share 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.
