It's Open House Season in Portland!

For those in the Real Estate profession, and especially for Realtors in Portland, late April starts to feel a little bit like Christmas. That's because there is just a little bit of electricity in the air as a whole lot of new homes hit the market in anticipation of the spring and summer seasons. With warmer weather that means home sellers are more likely to open their homes to prospective buyers and real estate agents have the opportunity to put a good foot forward with the homes they are representing.

If you are thinking about purchasing a home, or even if you are considering selling your home open houses can be a great way to get a good feel for what is on the market and how far your budget will take you. They are also a great excuse to move your search away from popular sites like Zillow and expand your search into the real world.

It is very easy to get caught up with what a home looks like on the internet, but open houses can be a great way to learn about new neighborhoods and to see what you might like in a home first hand. Pictures are one thing, actually moving through a space is another thing entirely.

Now let's all cross our fingers and hope the sunshine is here to stay for a few months! 

Andrew Kaiser

My name is Andrew Kaiser, welcome to my site! I have a passion for making images wherever and whenever I can. I seek to capture humanity and the world around me with a focus on the figure. Film, digital, pinhole, and instant photography are all fair game for me.


I grew up in the California Bay Area and started taking photography seriously in High School. I was one of the lucky few who had a chance to go to a high school with a working darkroom and a teacher who understood that making images was an art form – care and patience was a necessity in the image making process from start to finish.


Later in life I attended the University of California in Santa Cruz where I received a Bachelors Degree in the History of Art and Visual Culture. After having my fill of the California sunshine I packed up my life and moved to the Pacific Northwest. I quickly found the overcast skies, lush forests, cooler temperatures, and creative communities to be a perfect match for my work.


Over the years I have exhibited my photographs in several galleries and art shows including the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival and Cascade AIDS Project. I’ve published a few books and taught workshops up and down the west coast of the United States. Through this site I’m hoping to share my work and perhaps inspire others along the way.
