The Artist: Oregon Landscape Photographer, Patricia Davidson
Patricia Davidson is a professional landscape and nature photographer based in Oregon. She spent over twenty years on the southern Oregon Coast developing her landscape photography skills on the beaches and in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. In 2015, she set off in an RV on an epic four year journey to photograph the American West. Her work has been featured in Landscape Photography, Country Woman, To & From, Outdoor Photography, Loaded Landscapes, Fuji X Passion, the AAA Oregon / Idaho Atlas, Oregon’s 1859, 123RF Create, Inspire TV, and My Modern Met. She has written for Visual Wilderness, Scott Kelby’s blog, and Fuji Love Magazine. With a background in the visual arts and web development, Patricia devotes herself to creating images that express her artistic vision and passion for photography, and to sharing her love of nature and the outdoors with the world.
Patricia Davidson currently resides in a small town just outside of Portland, Oregon with her husband, Mike. When she is not traveling for photography, she enjoys spending time with her family who live throughout Oregon, Nevada, and New York City.

Do largely to the impact of social media, there has been an explosion of people visiting our treasured lands. Sadly, many people are leaving a negative impact. As a nature photographer, I believe I have a responsibility to be an example while out exploring and photographing our natural environments. Because of that, I made a commitment and joined Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography.
Nature First is committed to the following principles:
Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.
Educate yourself about the places you photograph.
Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.
Use discretion if sharing locations.
Know and follow rules and regulations.
Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.
Actively promote and educate others about these principles.
