So in case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, just a quick reminder that Seattle’s underground photography scene is going berserk. I’d venture to say that there are more aspiring camera shutters cracka-lackin’ here than anywhere on the planet.
If you missed our first such photo evening, highlighted in last January’s vid – Chase Jarvis RAW: Seattle Flickr Roundup – this time we took it to the next level. Thanks to the hard work of my crew and the likes of Glazers Camera here in Seattle, during Friday’s community outreach photo shoot event we were able to provide 100 photographers with the resources they need to help them learn: 30,000 square feet of shooting space, 25 models, 4 stylists, a breakdance crew, a freestyle ramp complete with BMX riders, 7 fully professional lighting stations, and a whole lotta positive vibes…all at no charge to them. In the words of Spinal Tap, this one went to eleven. Click the ‘continue reading’ link below to get the deets on this historic and collaborative event. —
So, if you’re a pro shooter, consider rounding up some local photo enthusiasts, reaching out to your community and sharing some knowledge. On the other hand, if you’re an aspiring photographer and this sort of thing is of interest to you, consider rounding up your homies and sharing resources. It’s good fun and remember, a rising tide floats all the boats.
