The Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission presents the Alfred Pease Exhibit at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue West. Pease enjoys photographing people in their cultural setting, wildlife in its natural habitat, and the scenic beauty of the wilderness.
An Edmonds resident for over 30 years, Pease feels privileged to be able to spend most of his free time pursing his passion for photography. “My first encounter with a camera was when I was in the U.S. Army,” said Pease. “I photographed the people in their culture and their surrounding environment in the areas where I was stationed, including Panama and South Korea.”
Working in the camera retail business for over 25 years, photography continues to be a driving force in his life. On his days off, Pease takes his wife and NIKON camera, various lenses and tripod and explores Washington State. “There is so much to photograph in this beautiful state,” Pease said. “I strongly believe that having an artistic background gives a photographer a creative edge in developing their photographic talent.”
Pease has been an active member of the Puget Sound Camera Club since it started in 1984. Currently President of the Club, he enjoys entering his digital images and photographs in competitions throughout the Pacific Northwest.
The Alfred Pease exhibit runs through June 30 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
