Web Site Photography

The gorgeous home page slideshow photos are courtesy of our very own Ferry County resident, John ‘Foster’ Fanning.

Foster was born in New York in 1951 and was 2 years old when he moved west with his widowed mother. His path would eventually take him coast to coast over a dozen times attending eight schools in twelve years of education. Foster landed in Washington State in 1969 and took up permanent residence in Ferry County in 1976. He’s lived in the Kettle River Valley ever since. A career as fire manager with Washington State Department of Natural Resources, he also serves as Fire Chief for the Curlew Fire Department. Foster’s hobby of photography has brought recognition across the Pacific NW thru publications, displayed prints, on-line sites and occasional shows. See his work.
