Cannon Beach galleries represent photographers creating art with traditional techniques and modern technology.

For 30 years, Christopher Burkett has used only traditional photography techniques to become one of the country's top fine art landscape photographers. Scott Peck uses elaborate studio staging, meticulous lighting and digital processes to create his fine art images. Cannon Beach resident George Vetter photographs the beauty of Cannon Beach and scenes from across the country. These are just a few examples of artists you will discover in Cannon Beach galleries who use the lens and their personal point of view as their medium. Burkett's large format images are featured in nearly 20 galleries from New York to Carmel, California including Cannon Beach's Northwest By Northwest Gallery. Peck's still life images, often vibrant florals, can be seen at Bronze Coast Gallery. Vetter's scenics are available at George Vetter Foto Art. Photography appreciators will also want to visit DragonFire Gallery, which features several photographers including remarkable wave photos by Clark Little. Large format scenic images of Cannon Beach and Northwest landscapes by Ron Keebler have been featured at Oregon Gallery for over 20 years.
