Photographer and Owner: Kim Campbell

In business for 17 years, we are a Portrait Photography Studio that offers a custom photo experience at our unique Sellwood studio or at your home. Creating your perfect portrait is our goal and we will consult with you from beginning to end to make that happen. Our outdoor portrait garden is filled with unique and artistic backgrounds that compliment many different looks and give us lots of inspiration and creativity. Families love the convenient and easy process we've created from being photographed to viewing them on our big screen. We love reminding folks that taking family photos CAN be fun!

What collaborations have you done with fellow Sellwood businesses?

As a member of the Sellwood Westmoreland Business Alliance and frequenters of Sellwood businesses we've had the good fortune to connect with fellow businesses for art shows at the Ugly Mug and Grand Central Bakery. Each Halloween we have a fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank coinciding with the Sellwood Monster March. In addition recommend favorite Sellwood spots to our clients to eat and shop at while they are in the neighborhood and we are tickled to hear when they come back to Sellwood to visit our recommended spot because they loved it so much.

What do you do to give back to the community?

At Campbell Salgado Studio we are proud to support over 50 non-profit community organizations each year. Through donations of our photography services and gift certificates to fundraisers we give away approximately $20,000 in goods and services annually. From pro-bono photography, event photography for non-profits to special projects we believe that giving back connects us strongly with the community that supports us.

Because we’ve photographed many of the families she works she was able to include portraits of the actual mother’s she is discussing in the article.

Art Business News - Maryhill Museum of Art Hosts Outdoor Sculpture Event

3/6/2009 by Colleen Schafroth

GOLDENDALE, WA—Maryhill Museum of Art will present its 14th Annual Outdoor Sculpture Invitational May 16 to Oct. 4, 2009. The exhibition features large-scale works in a variety of media by Northwest artists Lance Carleton, Matt Cartwright, Gregory Glynn, Tom Herrera, Ed Humpherys, Jay Moody, Francisco Salgado, Julie Speidel, Mike Suri, Jeff Tangen and David Wagner

First conceived to complement the museum’s extensive collection of Rodin sculptures, Maryhill’s Outdoor Sculpture Invitational has become one of the premier venues for Northwest artists who create and exhibit large-scale works. Maryhill’s dramatic and rugged setting, coupled with views of the Columbia River Gorge, also provide a unique environment for visitors to experience the diverse works featured in the exhibition.

“We strongly believe in encouraging the continued development of contemporary Northwest sculpture,” says Lee Musgrave, Maryhill’s curator of exhibits. “Each year the exhibit is a wonderful mix of works by established and emerging artists.”

Mike Suri’s dramatic iron sculpture, Brushing, was inspired by a tree, swept fully horizontal by the wind, which was thriving on the edge of a cliff. “I was immediately taken with the dynamism between these two powerful natural occurrences—the tree firmly rooted and full of life and the wind blowing hard and constant. The title comes from a term used in the wind power industry to describe the act of trees growing horizontally.

“When a site is found with this effect it is a sign of constant and high wind force. The bluff at Maryhill will make a perfect setting for the sculpture,” says Suri. In addition to works in the 2009 Outdoor Sculpture Invitational, visitors to Maryhill can also see sculptures from the museum’s collections that are on permanent display: works by Brad Cloepfil, Tom Herrera, Alisa Looney, Mel Katz, Heath Krieger, Jill Torberson, Julian Voss-Andreae, Jeff Weitzel and Leon White.
