ABOUT ME

Untitled photo


My name is Tyler Hersey and I am a Landscape, and Lifestyle Photographer in Bend, Oregon.

I am originally from Santa Barbara, California. I have found myself living in many places including, Long Beach, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Prineville, and now Bend

 My wife and I moved to Oregon in 2018 to care for her father after a serious stroke. He now lives with us and is doing alright. What started as an unfortunate situation, has quickly turned into a fantastic life and we have fallen in love with Central Oregon.

After years of working at Trader Joe's, my wife encouraged me follow my passion and make a career change. I am now a self-taught professional photographer and photo editor.

 Growing up on the beach, I spent most of my life surfing, scuba diving, spearfishing and lobster diving. 

Now that I am in Oregon, I often find myself hiking with my two dogs Boo and Zeus. I enjoy brewing and drinking craft beers, fishing, mountain biking, BBQing, floating the river, going to shows, cooking, and of course taking pictures everywhere.

I am a proud Veteran 🇺🇸  I served in the United States Coast Guard. My wife Nikki, is also a Veteran and proudly served in the United States Navy. Our/her dog Boo, is her Certified Service Dog while in the Navy, so Boo is a Veteran too!

I am a Nationally Registered EMT (not active) so if you have a medical issue while we are out shooting, I could probably save your life and stuff. Its a great perk I offer over other photographers!


Thanks for reading this, hopefully we can work together soon!
