Glazer’s Camera Hosts PhotoFest

Glazer’s second annual PhotoFest was held June 11 and 12 in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.
The annual festival featured 35 vendors and community partners, free classes and workshops, food trucks, and a once-yearly sale.
Vendors, including Nikon, Canon, Sony, Epson and Panasonic, were also joined by community partners Youth in Focus, Blue Earth Alliance, Reel Grrls, and Photo Center Northwest.
Saturday Night Live director of photography Alex Buono was Saturday’s keynote speaker. Buono spoke to a packed crowd of more than 250 people on the topic of Canon DSLR Filmmaking.
On Sunday, famed underwater photographer and Nikon enthusiast Scott Frier presented “Within the Coral Lace,” a collection of his photography.
“PhotoFest is a rewarding event to put together; we are able to bring together so many vendors to talk with customers and to support our annual sale,” said Glazer’s third-generation owner Rebecca Kaplan. “By offering free classes and lectures throughout the weekend, we were able to help our customers grow their skills and create an opportunity for the photo community to come together.”
The festival initially started as a celebration for Glazer’s 75th anniversary in 2009, but will continue every June.
