APA-NW Chapter is proud to host longtime photographer and recently retired Seattle educator, Alejandro Tomás, showing work from his eclectic career, answering questions, and telling stories.

Come mingle with peers, see some great work, and celebrate the career of a Seattle photographic giant. This event is FREE and open to all. Please join us for a free reception at 6:30, with the program to follow.

Daniel Beltrá is a fine art photographer based in Seattle. Since the early 1990’s, his work has taken him to all seven continents, including several expeditions to the Amazon, the Arctic, the Southern Oceans and the Patagonian ice fields, many of those in partnership with Greenpeace. Daniel has received the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, the Lucie Award for International Photographer of the Year, the prestigious Prince Charles Rainforest Project, and two World Press Photo awards, among others. He is also a fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. Daniel has exhibited extensively and his work is represented by the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago.
On his website, Daniel writes, "I find inspiration in the beauty and complexity of nature. The fragility of our ecosystems is a continuous thread throughout my work. My photographs show the vast scale of transformation our world is under from human-made stresses … By bringing images from remote locations where human and business interests and nature are at odds, I hope to instill a deeper appreciation for nature and an understanding of the precarious balance our lifestyle has placed on the planet."

Working and evolving while staying true to his own vision.
