Warnstaff Photography and Tour Guide Services

 
 

 
 
 
 
Steven​ Warnstaff has delved into photography for over 40 years beginning with his stint in the US military.  He has been employed with an Eastern Oregon newspaper, wrote magazine articles, had numerous photographic showings, sold prints to hospitals, private homes, and now is offering his services to the public through Portraiture, Weddings, Commercial Photography, Event Photography, and his guided tour services.  
 
The tours are primarily focused on the Cascade Mountains of Northern California with Mt. Shasta, Castle Crags, and Mt. Lassen, then along the chain of the many volcanic peaks in Oregon and Washington.
 
The Columbia River Gorge is also one of the gifts we have been presented as the Great Missoula Flood rained down through the Columbia River and across the landscape to form what we see today with the many waterfalls along the meandering and spectacular Eagle Creek Trail.  Wahclella, Elowah, Horse and Ponytail Falls, Multnomah Falls, Wahkeena Falls, Bridal Veil, Sheppards Dell Falls, and Latourell Falls highlight the western end of the Gorge, and views of the Gorge and towards Portland from the top of Vista House are remarkable.
 
At the Bridge of the Gods at Cascade Locks is where hundreds of years past Table Mountain slid from its birthplace, seen in Washington, and formed across the Columbia River a natural land bridge used by the Native Americans to cross between Oregon and Washington for many years.  South in Washington State stands Beacon Rock, a volcanic plug.  A beacon of hope to those of Oregon's earliest citizens as it signaled near completion of their long and arduous journey across the plains and the Rockies before reaching the Willamette Valley.  
 
The three units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Central Oregon, the Clarno, my favorite, the Painted Hills, and the Sheep Rock Units between the towns of Fossil, Mitchell, and Dayville offer one's eyes many scenes from Oregon's historied past where once massive volcanoes roared to life above the earliest of Rhinoceras, camel, deer, bear, and sabre toothed tigers that grazed and hunted beneath their tower.  The Thomas Condon Paleontology Museum is a must see while visiting the Sheep Rock Unit along with Cathedral Rock, and The Blue Basin.  Goose Rock Formation is where one can witness the Western Sea's marbled floor and its seastacks that have survived for millions of years along this ancient trail.
 
 
 
The Pacific Northwest is so diverse one may never in a lifetime see and experience all it may offer.  As I have admitted this fact to myself many times, I have strived to further my knowledge in many of the regions I find most interesting and worthy of photographing, and as I have traversed across many of the geologically rich areas of the Pacific, I have learned much of its history.  A great book written and photographed by Ellen Morris Bishop titled; "In Search of Ancient Oregon," is a must read if one wishes to understand the processes the earth has experienced for you to be able to stand where you stand today.
 
I pray as we all walk across the soils of this Earth, whether it be on any continent or here in the Pacific Northwest, that we would hear through the course of Wind these words and comprehend the significance in preserving our natural resources; "We, as humanity, must not be found wandered upon our lands as are the fallen meteors of our heavens.  We must be taken by our invitation upon this Great Earth as we discover the sacred grounds we encounter.  We must not be led astray from the gravity of their burnished and most honorable paths."
