Travel photographer Susan Seubert shoots Pendleton Oregon Makers Story for Travel Oregon
Pendleton has long been known for the Round Up, a rodeo that has been drawing thousands since its inception in 1910. The city as a travel destination unto itself is a relatively new phenomenon. Situated about 3 hours east of Portland in the high desert, Pendleton is a classic Western town. One of the biggest draws is to visit the Pendleton Woolen Mills. Now, you can sample craft beer, order custom cowboy boots, shop the antique stores, have a great steak dinner in a beautiful, Western themed restaurant and visit a contemporary art space. I recently had the chance to spend some time there photographing a story about some of the city’s craftsmen. Below are a few of my favorite pictures from the shoot.

Thanks for the memories. I grew up in Pendleton and moved away because it was to “small town.” Oh, how I wished I stayed there–still can still smell the leather smell of Hamleys. Great pictures–thank you.
Thank you for your kind words, Patricia!
Loved this photo essay about the craftsmen/women who hand make such beautiful products in Pendleton. I especially enjoyed seeing them at work in their studios which helps the public appreciate the skill and hard work that goes into hand craft. Being a landscape painter, I am in my own studio most days and understand the dedication required.
Thank you, Margaret, for your nice comments. Yes – these people are truly dedicated and it’s so refreshing to see authenticity, true authenticity, alive and well in this charming western town.
