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.
