We asked seven of the most talented Seattle photographers you nominated to send us a photo that best represents how they capture the city. Here’s what they had to say about the pics they picked (shown above):
“I think this photo best represents three of my passions – Seattle, bright cheery colors and my need to make everything I post a bit unique and stand out from the rest of the hundreds of photos of the same scene.”
— Sigma Sreedharan (@siglivetoeat)
“Seattle isn’t known for extreme weather so when it happens, there is a kind of electricity that also runs through this city… A good majority of other photographers were at Kerry Park, but I had Pier 66 to myself and therefore walked away with this one of a kind shot.”
— Brendan Ramsey (@brendanramseyphotography)
“Right now my work is focused on the juxtaposition between the ‘pretty and the gritty’ sides of Seattle… The photo has been seen by over 12 million people, making it one of the most widely seen photos of the Space Needle ever!”
— Tim Durkan (@timdurkan)
“As a photojournalist in Seattle, I’m looking to photograph how families and neighbors connect… We get the opportunity to learn and work with our neighbors to help share stories of news, history, culture and religion with the greater public.”
— Erika Schultz (@erikajschultz)
“I guess this image represents the quieter, smaller, everyday Seattle that many of my photographs reflect, from the natural world to people at work to objects left to decay on the streets. Images that ask questions or tell stories.”
— Jim Hamerlinck (@quiet.seattle)
“This photo represents one of the best moments I capture for the city of Seattle because it was my first time shooting at night and came out to show me how beautiful Seattle really is.”

GET (TO KNOW) SOME TREES 🌲
Want to see the Olympic Sculpture Park in a whole new way? Check out this tree walk Forterra is putting on tonight as part of our art museum’s Summer at SAM Series. Apparently, a “Sneaky Tree” will be the guest of honor.
And did you know the city has a program where you can apply to get free trees to plant? And not only that, but if you’re randomly chosen to get a tree, you’ll get help applying for the right permits, advice on the right kind of tree for your area, training on how to plant it, and access to “pruning” workshops. Pretty neat, huh? Apply here before the August 14 deadline.
Have a good one, all. — The Evergrey
