The first film of the Ross Hamilton Project has finally been completed. It just finished airing on PAPA TV this past weekend (papaonline.tv) and now is available on Vimeo to general audiences.
This film is truly inspirational. Ross Hamilton has been a fixture on the Olympic Peninsula for almost 50 years. His iconic images of the Olympic National Park, as well as the rest of the peninsula are stunningly beautiful. All shot on his 4×5 large format camera. Many are from his treks deep into the back country of the Olympic mountain range. Others from his many trips to the rugged Washington coastline, as well as the old growth forests of the West End. The Hoh rain forest, Rialto Beach, 2nd Beach, Lake Crescent, Sol Duc Falls, the Bailey range, Mount Olympus, and more grace this film as Hamilton shares his experiences with the audience.
At 74, Ross Hamilton has lost his vision to glaucoma, yet continues to share his adventures, experiences, and stunning imagery with small groups of photographers and outdoor advocates across his beloved Olympic Peninsula.
So enjoy many of his classic images. Hear him talk about his experiences acquiring them and his personal struggle with his vision loss. A very inspiring story.
