Photographing People with Rosanne Olson

The gifted Seattle photographer, Rosanne Olson, who also occasionally shares her talent and knowledge with the community at Photo Center NW has offered to put together an impromptu workshop. Preceding the upcoming Holiday Portrait fundraiser on Dec. 11 & 12 at which pros and students will produce portraits for the guests to take home on a cd, the workshop will cover the all important details of working with portrait subjects:

"How do you work with people to get them to relax and arrive at the best possible portrait? It is an art that takes skill, confidence and experience. In this three-hour workshop, Rosanne Olson will share tips and demonstrate how to work with subjects, including couples, children and groups."

Scheduled the week before the Holiday Portrait fundraiser at Photo Center NW, volunteers and anyone looking for a quick look at shooting great portraits will have the chance to experience the insight of a truly great portrait photographer. Rosanne Olson's three hour workshop begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5.

Call 206-720-7222 or visit to sign up for Photographing People with Rosanne.

Update: The cost of the workshop is $50. The center agreed to waive the cancellation fees for this workshop since volunteers for the Holiday Portrait Event may be attending.

Note: In case you are wondering, I am on the volunteer committee for the Holiday Fundraiser at Photo Center. So feel free to shoot me an email or post them here if you have questions and I will do my best to answer at
