The Gal Behind the Lens


Colleen Easley

Hello, I’m Colleen, the gal behind the lens at Colleen Easley Photography.  I live in Olympia, Washington with my husband, Dale, and 2 kitties, PD and Foxy

My Time in Alaska

Although I’ve been taking photos for over 45 years; my true passion for photography was rekindled in recent years when I started doing seasonal tour guiding in Alaska.  Seventeen summers in Alaska gave me the opportunity to capture many beautiful images of that state’s majestic landscapes and wildlife.  I retired from guiding in 2010.  I look back on those years with great appreciation for all that I learned about nature photography.  Nature and wildlife are still my favorite subjects to shoot.

Around My Community

Now that I’m back in Olympia, I’m focusing some of my photography skills on my local community.  I have no plans to make photography a full time profession, but it has definitely become more than just a hobby.  I am enjoying taking on a limited number of special projects such as newborn baby sessions, children (including those with special needs), pets, senior portraits, corporate portraits, local events, and small weddings.  I am particularly blessed when I’m able to give back to my community by helping families who find it difficult to afford a traditional photographer.  I’ve priced my photo sessions and prints at a very reasonable level, but if budget constraints are preventing you from getting profession portraits taken, please contact me.  I’ll be happy to help you find a workable solution.

The Beauty Around Us

Now that I’m semi-retired I’m also doing some traveling around this beautiful country of ours.  As I travel I’ll be making images to share on my web site.  Please take time to relax and browse through my galleries.  All my images are for sale, so if you find something you like, click to enlarge it and look for the BUY button at the top of each photo.  You can buy traditional sized prints, design greeting cards, or have my photos printed on various items of merchandise – all from within the shopping cart program on my site.  Oh, and just to be clear, my watermark will NOT be included on your purchased items.

Photographs share the same legal protection and rights on the World Wide Web as they do in other forms of print media, such as newspapers, magazines, brochures, billboards, and other media.  The photos in my gallery are right click protected to prevent unauthorized downloading.  Purchasing a digital copy of any of my images for personal use gives you unlimited printing and reproduction rights to that photo.  If you wish to use a photo for commercial purposes, please purchase the commercial license.  Thanks!

I hope you’ll check back often to see what’s new.  Give me a call if you’d like to discuss your photography needs for an upcoming event or portrait session.

Best regards,
