Boone Speed is an award-winning professional photographer based in Portland, Oregon.
Regarded among peers and clients alike for his painterly aesthetic and minimalist sensibilities, Boone has been singled out by the likes of Prana, ESPN and other authentic brands to help them tell their stories.
In addition to shooting for some of the world’s most beloved establishments, Boone is esteemed as a pioneering athlete and principle architect in the evolution of rock climbing.
Here’s a bit of his story in his own words:
“The journey began for me as an athlete…a rags to riches story you could say, except in my case, a rags to ragged since my thing is
climbing. But I’m good at it…it’s said I did some important stuff. I’ve gotten to see the world, experience stardom and meet a bunch of life-long friends along the way. It was meant to be. Eventually though, I wasn’t at the top of the pack and in need of a real job. So I picked up my camera and applied everything I’d already learned, and then a whole lot more, to making pictures. My work got noticed and I jumped on the opportunity to build a portfolio and a client list that I’m extremely proud of. Today, along with the skills of my wife Bailey, we run a studio focused on bringing good ideas to life through visual story-telling.”
