Cassidy Stock Shots

There are stock shots and then there are Cassidy Stock Shots. Finding art in the everyday, Diane Cassidy captures the simple beauty of life in the Pacific Northwest. Whether cityscapes or naturescapes, architecture or animals, her images are both playful (racing pigs & sunbathing turtles) and pensive (peaceful cemeteries & winding waterways).

The only problem with Diane’s shots is that after looking through them, you’ll want to pack your bags and head northwest!
