Seattle Chinese Garden Photo Workshop will highlight nature and architecture

Information from the Seattle Chinese Garden

Ray Pfortner, an educator and professional photographer based on Vashon Island, is offering his third annual photography workshop at the Seattle Chinese Garden. Anyone interested in photographing nature and distinctive architecture will enjoy this setting and enhance their skills with Ray’s coaching.

Places are still available for photographers at any skill level who own any kind of digital camera. The sessions are on two Friday evenings (July 26 and August 9) and two Sundays (July 28 and August 11) in early morning and evening to capture the garden in the best light and under a crescent moon. The workshop is limited to 16 participants. The garden is at the north end of the South Seattle Community College campus.

Pfortner’s work focuses on nature, landscapes, environmental issues, and gardens, especially Asian gardens. He teaches workshops in partnership with colleges, art centers, artist stores, and organizations regionally and nationally. Ray has a special interest in coaching new talent.
