Photographer Spotlight: Evan Kubena

Stepping out of your comfort zone as a scout can be the most rewarding aspect of the whole program. It feels risky but can result in your fondest, most exciting memories. My favorite memory? Swimming in a North Cascades river in 90 degree weather, laying on the forested river bank soaking in the fresh air and PNW summer sun!

Photographer Breakdown

WHAT’S IN HIS BAG: Canon 5D Mark 2, Poler ‘Napsack’, my hatchet, my Goal Zero flashlight, and my Bluetooth speaker!
HIS STYLE: Based in a filmmakers visual eye.
PHOTO HACK: Optimize your camera for wet weather conditions. In the PNW it becomes a consistent issue.

Evan’s Field Scout Trip Highlights

Teal Creek Camp

Turning Earth Farms, OR

This was like living in a storybook. So calm, warm, and golden.

The Landing

Index WA Skykomish River, WA

The Landing at Mt. Index is my number one. How about 16 acres of riverfront beach under a mountain to yourself?

Bandon Farmstay

Bandon, OR

Dreamy tiny rustic cabins on the Oregon Coast are trendy for a reason- they are amazing.

The Arboretum

Bear Canyon West, Washington
