At APA, we know that a variety of events is important to our members and we're working hard to create events that get us together, that teach us something, that indulge our passion for gear, that inspire us, that nourish our creativity, and that quench our thirst.  Got an event idea? email a suggestion to chair@apanw.org.

We're pleased to announce our line-up of events for 2018.  Please always double check the website and our Instagram and Twitter feeds for specifics and last minute changes.

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.  After a long career shooting for the US Navy, editorial, the White House Press Corps, and commercial clients, Tomás then helped educate a generation of students as head of Seattle Central’s Commercial Photography program.  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.

  • May, 2018 (exact date TBA) - How to Fly by the Seat of Your Pants.

For anyone who's feeling a little confused or overwhelmed when it comes to your business, or if you're new to Seattle and want to get the lay of the land, or maybe you're just starting a photographic career and don't know exactly where to begin - this event is for you.  In two hours, we'll briefly touch on three areas vital to running a photo business here in the Northwest and get you started in the right direction: Licensing & Copyright; Taxes, Accounting, & Record-keeping; and Digital Marketing, Websites, & Social Media.

At roughly 40 minutes each, don't expect to become an expert on any of these topics but do expect to come away with a foundation of knowledge, great ideas to start with, and info on where to find out more.  Don't know what you don't know?  This will be a great event to get you started.  Speakers include Luke Frye, CPA of Timber Tax and Rachel VanBuskirk, Art Director at Seattle social media marketing firm, Project Bionic.  APA members receive discounted admission.  Not a member?

  • October, 2018 (exact date TBA) - An Evening with Conservation and Environmental Photographer, Daniel Beltra.

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."
