Lancaster Falls
Starvation Creek, Oregon

Walking the trail to this waterfall first thing in the morning is a wonderful way to wake up.  Walking the trail with coffee and a bagel is the perfect way! :)

The Birth of an Addiction
Lost Lake, Oregon

For my birthday today I decided to revisit and reprocess my first try at astral photography.  This was on Lost Lake the first night of the season last year and ever since then I still get all giddy after capturing the milky way.

Daigo-ji Temple
Nara, Japan

Best Viewed Large

This place has been on my mind lately. Temptation to head back this year while the sakura is in full bloom is playing tug-o-war in my head. Hmmmm....

Hedge Creek Falls
Dunsmuir, California

I took this photo of Hedge Creek Falls last spring and found it on my winter revisit list.  I am willing to wager this place looks amazing when it is flowing and partially frozen!  We shall see soon enough. ;)

Good Morning From The Blue City
Jodhpur, India


The contrast between the blue homes and the traditional desert dwellings is quite stimulating.  It is as if it mimics an ocean at the edge of the Thar Desert.  Definitely a place I wish to visit again!!!

Long exposure made happier with a +Formatt-Hitech 6-stop indr filter.

That Damn Rusty Car In The Gorge

I took this photo my second night of attaining a new addiction called Milky Way hunting. I wanted to capture the windflowers more but with 30+ mph winds that wasn't happening. At least the rattlesnakes were at bay. :)
Not sure how the quality will be as I pulled this off of cloud to my phone. Been sitting beside my partner in the hospital for the past day.

Night Rider
Highway 44, California


Driving mainly through desert environments the last few days I had though I had seen some really incredible stars across the sky but last night blew them away.  Driving through the Sierra's was magnificent.  Here is a scene that had to be pulled over for.  I have to thank Rory for it as she pointed it out to me.  It was so dark outside.  Both spooky and fantastic!  I love a good road trip and can't wait to spend some time with these photos!

The Burning Tree
Eagle Creek, Oregon

When looking through past photos and hunting inspiration this one always stands out to me. The fog and sun were just right. I woke up and saw this out my window in the dead of winter. In no time flat I had jumped up and ran out of the door clutching my camera trying to stop time. It might have worked...

Judgement and Prejudice Should Never Be Tolerated
Today something happened to me that isn't new but isn't common either.
I have something to admit. I am missing two of my front teeth. While that may sound like it isn't a big deal it really can be traumatizing. I lost them getting hit by a car of kids on purpose riding my bicycle and have dropped close to $20,000 so far fixing them.
I went to ask an agent a simple question today with +United Airlines inside of LAX and the woman who greeted me happily with a smile suddenly became extremely rude and condescending when I opened my mouth. I flew about a week ago with +United and had a stewardess ask if I really needed more alcohol on my flight. I hadn't had a drink ANYWHERE that day. I'm wearing nice clothing. I'm clean and shaven. Hell, I'm in first class. Should it matter? Anyhow, this woman was extremely rude and I tried to talk to another United employee and she just turned from me and walked away mid-conversation. I'm pissed. My day is ruined. While it may seem petty it was/is a very traumatic situation with me and makes me embarrassed to talk to people. Taking off now. Thanks again +United Air.

Introduction
Howdy, I am Wick Sakit.  I am a lifelong artist based in Portland that dabbles in many fields but my main area of focus is photography.  It kicked into gear for me through a program called, "College for Kids," when I was in elementary school where I first experienced darkroom technique.  From there I went through many point and shoots throughout my years of travel from the age 15 on.  I never gave much attention to friends telling me that I always took the best photos.  Just a simple thanks and then I'd give them a copy.  Back when everybody printed everything out.  I got my taste of fashion photography in New York in the mid-90's working as a model in which I believe helped tone my eye for capturing light sharing my unique vision with others.  I since went to work with sculpture for many years following that but due to an accident was unable to continue.  This lead me to pick up the camera in a more serious context than before as I have an insatiable need for creative output.  I fell in love.  Less than a year later I was showing in galleries in Oakland, California and getting my submissions picked on National Geographic's Daily Dozen as well as other fabulous websites.  I became an uncontrollable beast with the camera!  It was always in my hand.  It still is.  I travel the world shooting street/life and landscape photography as well as capture portraits primarily in the world of International Dance.  
I am available for hire bother personally and commercially with a willingness to travel to you!
I welcome inquiries regarding photography submissions, image licensing, exhibition opportunities, as well as fine art print sales.  Please feel free to visit my website at: http://www.wicksakit.com
As I always say, "the average person blinks 23,040 times a day.  Welcome to a taste of mine."
Almost all my post are available for purchase on my website. 
Bragging rights
I have survived a plethora of life threatening incidents and have been in National Geographic. I feel very blessed. I also once ate 7 hotdogs in a few minutes.
