Welcome to my photography site! I love making beautiful images in my home state of Oregon and many other places I visit.

Who am I? I am a professional civil engineer specializing in transportation, and I have a passion for photography. I have enjoyed capturing images for over 30 years, ever since using a manual focus Pentax film camera for a black-and-white darkroom class in junior high. I am grateful for the photographic inspiration from many people, most especially Peter Schutte in Portland, Oregon, and Scott Mead on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

If you are interested in any of these photographs for prints or other purposes, please contact me at lee@leerodegerdts.com.
