Based between the Cascade Mountains and the Pacific Ocean in Oregon, Broken Banjo Photography is available just about anywhere that wheels or wings will go.

Broken Banjo focuses on conference/event photography, portraiture, headshots, and general imagery.

The name, “Broken Banjo Photography” comes from a passage in Pete Seeger’s biography; when jumping out of a moving train, he broke his fall with his banjo. The banjo didn’t fare well, and was one of only two items of value the troubadour had. The other item was a camera, which he pawned to buy another instrument. After two days playing his new instrument in bars and on the street, he made enough money to buy his camera back, and was on his feet again.

There’s probably a metaphor in there somewhere

Smyth McIntosh provides counsel to members of the business community in Manzanita and North Tillamook County, and is addressing estate planning needs for those who have retired to the area. Sarah is on the board of the Manzanita Business Alliance and active in the North Tillamook Rotary Club. Having seen both sides – borrower from a regional bank, legal counsel for a community bank – Sarah is particularly skilled at understanding and meeting the banking, property and related needs of Smyth McIntosh and Law Manzanita clients.

In addition to heading the law practice she founded, Sarah is owner and developer of Smyth Landing, a 54,000-square foot, mixed-use office-condominium complex that exemplifies the future of the state capital’s West Bay area. Through a sub-area “urban waterfront” plan, shoreline enhancement and public access to the waterfront will be emphasized through mixed-use developments that incorporate parks and trails for the community.

Smyth McIntosh earned her B.A. degree from the University of Washington in 1982 and her J.D. degree from Seattle University (formerly University of Puget Sound School of Law) in 1985. She began practicing law in 1986.
