He has co-produced four Mount Hood Jazz Festival commemorative prints that have become collector’s items in the Northwest. 2008 poster available.

His books include Oregon Harvest, Hood River — Land of Plenty, Mount Hood — The Heart of Oregon, and Mount Hood — Portrait of a Place.

His latest project is a photo essay on the 25th Anniversary of the creation of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, release date May, 2011. In advance comments for the book, former President Jimmy Carter says “Peter Marbach’s exquisite imagery reminds us of the simple joys of connecting with the land and the importance of preserving precious sites for generations to come.”

Peter resides in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge in Hood River, Oregon. An avid hiker and backpacker, he has hiked the Pacific Crest trail, the Appalachian trail and a 600 mile trek across England and Scotland. When hiking, he often finds himself at the right place at the right time for his scenic fine art photography. Marbach visualizes an image, then patiently waits until all the elements come together in one glorious moment.

In Fall 2012, he will be co-leading a trip to Tibet and would love for you to join in!
