What It Is

Damian Riehl is a Portland based film photographer, bike messenger, and damn good dude. He shoots nearly every day(except most sunsets because its always better in person), offers to cover events, likes long walks on the beach and writes in third person, apparently. 


I am a native Portlander.

I love bikes and have been a messenger since 1996. In 2010 I picked up a film camera a have taken it to work nearly every single day since, teaching myself and making up for lost time. It is a blessing to be able to do what I do, no matter how hard the struggle is.

This is what I love. I started shooting for myself, and I still do. In between doing my thing, I sometimes find the time and interest to shoot for others.

Slow roll. Film.

Thanks for stopping by.
