Nathan Wallace is a native Portlander, a fisheries biologist for the State of Oregon, and a freelance photographer. During his day job, he collects data to help generate population estimates for threatened salmon species in the lower Columbia River basin.
Nathan has always had a love for the environment and started down his career path working for the New Zealand Department of Conservation as a fisheries ranger on the Tongariro River.
Recently Nathan was awarded a month-long artist’s residency for his fine art landscape and wilderness photography by the Breckinridge, CO Creative Arts Council.
Besides his work with the state, he is an avid outdoors person and musician. If he’s not is his waders you can find him with a camera—hiking, camping, or backpacking around the wild areas of the Pacific Northwest.
