The LA Opera at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Grand Street in downtown LA is a must during the fall and holiday season when they have a solid lineup of opera and ballet. Very inspiring.

If you find yourself in Malibu for any reason, stop by the Pepperdine university campus and check out this grass field. If there aren't any lacrosse practices happening, then you can sit and fell like you're on the edge of the world.

It's a cemetery, but the view from up here is stunning and you can see one of the most large scale epic paintings ever made by a human: The Crucifixion painting, by Polish artist Jan Styka. It's a must see.

This is a great place to walk around. It really feels like a mini Lake Shasta or something tucked right up in the Hollywood Hills. Ornate statues on the bridge and sweet smelling trees. If you squint you almost feel like you're not in the middle of a massive city.

I had a studio in this neighborhood for 3 years. Just take your camera and spend a couple hours walking around admiring the colors and people and odd shops.

You've heard of Disneyland, but you must see the Abraham Lincoln animatronic at the end of Main Street near the entrance. He gives a super life-like impassioned speech about America that is very timely.

One classic arcade to rule them all. Whenever I need a break from animating or staring at an editing screen I run across the street and clear my head with a couple games of Lord of the Rings pinball or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The best sushi and the cheapest, which normally doesn’t make sense, but it really is. It’s a train too so it’s easy to grab a seat and eat whatever you like for as long as you like. Classic 80’s hits help wash it all down. Probably my most frequented restaurant in Portland.

Up past the more famous rose garden on the west side is an arboretum with hiking trails and a zoo. Great views of Portland’s downtown and Mt. St. Helens in the distance. It’s very peaceful and any time of year it’s a nice and quick escape from the city, just takes under 10 minutes to get to.

Home to the best breakfast burrito in the world. But their hours are unpredictable and they often run out of eggs (possible?) early and have to close. So get there early or plan for a weekday visit.

Cool gallery and store on Burnside. They keep a pretty consistent calender of events, always worth checking out. Some purchases include a mix tape CD of fine taste.

Located in the best little strip mall in Portland. Tiga has great drinks, music, and food for you to enjoy. Then wander 2 doors down to Beacon Sound and flip through a well-curated collection of vinyl records.

Leah Nash and Christopher Onstott are an award-winning photography & videography duo based in Portland, Oregon. They specialize in real people commercial, editorial, corporate, education, and travel photography. Both originally photojournalists, Leah and Christopher take a moment-driven approach, capturing authentic imagery whether in life, at work, or on set. The result is graphic, storytelling, portrait and lifestyle photography that is full of color, light and intimacy. Not averse to dancing (her), telling bad jokes (him) or listening intently (both), their goal is to leave their subjects a little bit better than they found them. All the while creating a wealth of images that look and feel spontaneous. They feel darn proud to work for brands like Apple, Charles Schwab, Microsoft, Chase Bank, Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, The Oregon Symphony, Marriott, and Portland State University. They also shoot for a variety of editorial clients including National Geographic Traveler, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, NPR, and AARP.
