Jury photo lights and backdrops
for member use at NWAA office
We know most members can't afford a professional photo of every piece they create and we hope this will make it a bit easier to get good jury images. The NWAA Office at Magnuson park has a tripod, photography lighting and backdrops set up for member use. Once you learn how to use the gear, you can bring your work and your camera into the office to take your own photos with professional lights, tents and backdrops.
You’ll need to have a mentor help you the first time (call Luke at the office for an appointment 206-525-5926). There is no charge but we’ll accept donations toward the cost of replacing the fancy CFL lights when they go. If you break a lamp full, we expect you to pay the $50 it costs for replacements.
