About:

Hi there,

My name is Stephen Badger, I am originally from Hawaii but have spent most of my life in California and most recently (since 2010) in Oregon. I am a senior undergraduate at Oregon State University in the Cascades campus located in Bend, OR. I've grown up loving the outdoors which explains my Major being in Natural Resources. However, this is also what got me into photography. In 2012, I started with landscapes, then photojournalism at the college newspaper where I shot sports and other events. I have since gotten into film photography, particularly medium format. I still shoot digital but the bulk of my recent work lies with film. I enjoy the unforgiving nature of film and it's far more fulfilling when you get everything right!
