I would like to thank Glazer’s Photography in Seattle for a great event this past weekend (June 11-12). It was their annual PhotoFest, now in its 7th year! Back in March, I recommended you change your schedule to learn new things or take part in activities that are normally outside your normal routine or comfort zone. I chose photography, something I’ve always been interested in, but was always hesitant to commit to due to the learning curve and investment in equipment.
After completing my first photography class, I’m more eager than ever to advance my photography skills and meet fellow photographers. This is where PhotoFest comes in as they offer free workshops in various areas of photography and videography. Not to mention, they offer some pretty killer sales on the latest camera equipment. My wife even picked up Panasonic’s new GX85, a camera that I purchased recently too and we love it!
The seminars included topics such as “Photography for Social Media”, “Creative Travel Photography”, “Your Photographic Voice”, and so many others. Perhaps the most fun were the photo walks where a group of fellow photographers walk around the city guided by a professional. Ashley and I attended the “Carry Less, Create More” photo walk hosted by Giulio Sciorio. We had a great time and I’ll post some photos below (plus the cover photo of the lanterns) that I took on that walk.
If you’re interested in photography, whether you’re a newbie or a pro, mark your calendars for next year. You can’t beat the free price, a like-minded community, and learning new ways to enhance your photography skills.
Life is best lived Outside the Cube. Have a great week!
