Jim and Vinny both reside in the Seattle area of the Pacific Northwest. While Jim has recently moved to the area in 2015, Vinny has lived and explored this area his entire life. Working together at Kenmore Camera, Vinny and Jim are teaming up to lead our Olympic National Park photography workshop. Through a combination of theory, philosophy, examples, and on-the-spot feedback, they help students reach those “a-ha!” moments that take their photography to the next level.
Jim Patterson has a a vast experience teaching landscape photography and has taught many students along the coast of California teaching seascape photography. He has explored some of the locations in Olympic National Park we will be visiting and plans on further scouting leading up to the workshop.
Vinny brings an enthusiasm for the outdoors and an extensive knowledge of the outdoors. He has also worked in the camera industry for well over a decade and brings a wealth of technical knowledge along with him in addition to the creative side of photography.
