What we're about

We are a group of photographers, photo enthusiasts and creatives with interests that run from the most current in digital cameras to a passion for all things analogue. If you’re new to photography or a seasoned pro, this group is a great way to get out and socialise with people who have a similar interest.

Our goal is to host 1-2 events a month, from Photowalks in varying neighbourhoods around Seattle, and surrounding areas, to social hours, we lovingly refer to as Brews and Views.

Photowalks are a blend of hanging out with your fellow photo geeks, exploring neighbourhoods or parks in the city, taking photos and having fun.

Brews & Views are social gatherings, we find a pub or restaurant, ideally with decent food and a good selection of libations. We sometimes bring prints or digital tools to share our work. Often there are many cameras around to chat about. The conversation runs the gamut from photography (or course) to travel to movies to anything!

Other events we will host: Lighting Demos, Educational Lectures, Excursions.

Our group is about supporting each other, being a space for people to learn and grow creatively. No question to stupid, no gear judged not worthy. If you shoot with a smart phone, film camera, DSLR, Mirrorless or instant, all cameras are welcome, multiple cameras are even encouraged sometimes.

Members who wish to host an event should contact the event organiser to get that event published to the calendar.

Photowalk, on a boat! Let's hop on a Ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge

Hey everyone!

Let's hop on a ferry and head over to Bainbridge Island.

Ferries are quite photogenic, we can capture images of the ferry, the city, and of course the island.

From the dock, there is a short walk to the downtown area, where there is a farmer's market on Saturdays.

We will depart on the 11:25 AM ferry. It's about a 35 minute ride each way, so that would put us on the island about 12:10. And give us time to wander the ferry and take some images.

I may head back to downtown Seattle on the 2:10 PM ferry, the next one after that is at 3:55 PM. I will play that part by ear.

Please arrive at the ferry terminal early enough to buy your ticket, you can also purchase a ticket online.

This is open to all levels of photographer, using whatever camera you would like to, from instant, film to mobile to mirrorless or dslr. I will most likely have a couple of options.
