Farm Alone

Ryan Cass enjoys shooting video as well as still photography, and summer did not slow him down.

Some pieces from the last few firings as we wrap the year up. Thanks for all the fun times - let's do it again! (After, like, taking a couple months off, enjoying some sun and sleeping in).

2015 Washington State High School Photo Contest

The annual high school photography contest took place in our gym Saturday and was as big and exciting as ever. Around 70 schools participated, submitting 4000ish images. This year our judges were Eirik Johnson, a professor of photography at UW who also works with Photo Center NW; Margaret Zydek, photo professor at Bellevue College; and Catherine Abegg, a primarily portrait and wedding photographer. Reactions to their choices ranged from "Yes!" to "Why the HECK did they choose THAT?!", but from a sea of images they managed to winnow out 1st through 6th places in each of twelve categories. Our students put up a pretty good showing this year and earned third place overall. Below are not only the images that received recognition (a few still need to be added), but also some good works that were lost in the crowd.

The first three photos below will be professionally framed and join the traveling show that exhibits in the Seattle Art Museum, among other venues.
