It's time for your close-up, Beaverton

Smile! You’re on camera.Beaverton Valley Times

At least you will be at this time next week, as the good folks here at the Beaverton Valley Times chronicle some of the Beaverton-area’s best in photos.

The 2016 version of our annual Portrait special section will be built around the theme “A Day in the Life,” and we want you to be a part of it — and to play a part in making it.

Here’s the deal — on Thursday, Feb. 4, photographers, editors, reporters, ad folks and more will be out in force chronicling a day in the life of Beaverton. That story will mostly be told through photos and you can help us tell it.

During your day on Feb. 4, stop and take a photo of life in or around Beaverton. It could be an image of your son or daughter getting ready for school, one of your friends working out at the gym or walking one of our many trails. It could be a picture of your co-worker hard at work or pouring the coffee like they always do — all the things that help make the Beaverton area such a great place to live.

Once you’ve got the photo you want, email it to Valley Times editor Miles Vance at This email address is being protected from spambots.
