About the photographer:

After a thirty-year career as an award-winning biology teacher at Seaside High School, Neal Maine became the first executive director of North Coast Land Conservancy, which he co-founded in 1986. Since his retirement from the land trust in 2010, he has pursued his passion for nature photography through PacificLight Images, a partnership with Michael Wing, dedicated to raising awareness of coastal ecology and the wildlife with whom we share the region’s estuaries, freshwater wetlands and forests. Their photography centers around coastal and Columbia River landscape, ecology and the rich estuary habitat with the surrounding wetlands and forest systems.

Neal focuses his imagery on exploring wildlife in the context of its habitat, while Michael’s specialty is capturing action images that illustrates the dynamic nature of coastal wildlife. PacificLight Images is dedicated to working with coastal communities to protect wildlife habitat and its connectivity.

A percentage of all photography sales are donated to North Coast Land Conservancy to help further this goal by PacificLight Images. Please visit http://www.nclctrust.org to read more about  NCLC.

And, too, all commission proceeds at Fairweather’s are given back in support of NCLC.

“Unless otherwise noted, images are presented as they were photographed. Slight adjustment by cropping, lightening or darkening may have been used, but the photo subject is presented as recorded in the Oregon coastal landscapes.”

Ever humbled and grateful to be selected to represent Neal Maine and Michael Wing/ PacificLight Images. Signed, matted and framed images available exclusively at Fairweather’s. A Certificate of Authenticity is provided with each copyrighted and signed image.
