About Peyton


I am a freelance landscape and travel photographer currently based in Raleigh, North Carolina.  I grew up in the Appalachian Mountains where my love for the outdoors led me to find photography.  I have a special place in my heart for the desert, but I am right at home in the coldest of places in my efforts to create stories through my images.

I have worked on marketing campaigns and projects for various entities including:

  • Travel Alberta
  • Visit California
  • The National Park Service
  • NOAA
  • IcelandAir

Over the past few years I've been helping my good friend Colby Brown with some of his workshops as well as coming on board with The Giving Lens (TGL) as a trip lead and instructor. 

As of early 2016 I am now working as the assistant Manager of Operations for The Giving Lens, helping with the daily operations, trip preparation, as well as continuing to serve as a team lead for the organization.  

I am available for marketing campaigns, workshops, private instruction and a variety of services that I will be fully established sortly.  If you have questions about licensing of images, purchasing prints or other inquiries please do not hesitate to contact me via email  - peyton.hale@gmail.com
