Scenic Seattle

9780764351167Scenic Seattle, Touring and Photographing the Emerald City is my guidebook about everything Seattle.  I designed the book to help visitors, as well as city residents, tour and photograph this beautiful city. The book includes descriptions, including travel and historical information, of more than 100 destinations. Additionally, in the book, I give specific advice for recreational and professional photographers on capturing the best shots, including ISO settings, angles of view, best shooting times, and photographic restrictions. The book includes 126 example images and maps.

Many locations featured in the book are accessible by foot, or with mass-transit connections, from downtown Seattle. Areas covered include Pike Place Market, Seattle Center, downtown, the waterfront, South Lake Union, the University of Washington, the Chinatown-International District, and West Seattle. Specific spots covered include the Space Needle, the EMP, Pioneer Square, Washington State ferries, the Great Wheel, Union Station, the Center for Wooden Boats, Discovery Park, Fishermen’s Terminal, the Hiram Chittenden Locks, Gasworks Park, Fremont, Volunteer Park, Kubota Garden, Alki Beach, the Museum of Flight, a dozen viewpoints, and many more. With its rich maritime history, eclectic architecture, and endlessly photogenic seascapes, landscapes, and cityscapes, the Emerald City contains something special for everyone.
