Mamas With Cameras
A SEATTLE-AREA GROUP FOR WOMEN WHO LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY
Are you a Seattle-area woman who loves to take photos? Do you want to build and share your passion for photography with fellow women in a fun and supportive environment? Then you've found the right place!
Take a look around our site, check out our Facebook page, see what we are shooting on our Instagram feed, and browse our upcoming meetups and workshops. We'd love for you to join the fun and we hope to see you soon at one of our events!
Mamas with Cameras is lead by co-founders Mary Balmaceda and Wenmei Hill, and we are passionate about making digital photography fun and accessible for women.
We all want memorable photos of our lives, but sometimes the technology behind today's digital cameras can feel overwhelming.
Our hands-on workshops cut through the technical jargon and give practical settings and tips that will help you instantly take better pictures of the things (and people) that matter to you. We also host free monthly meetups with guest speakers , guided photo walks, and photo exercises to help take your photography to the next level.
WHAT WE DO
We host free monthly meetups and photo walks in the Seattle area to give our members the chance to hear about local photographers and their work, be introduced to new ideas and techniques, and practice their skills in a guided environment.
Our workshops are geared towards mamas and other women who want to get more comfortable with their digital cameras in a supportive hands-on setting.
Through our members-only Facebook group, fundraisers, photo projects and ad hoc events, we offer women who are passionate about photography a welcoming community to advance their learning
In December 2017, we were proud to be featured by Glazer's Camera as part of their holiday content highlighting Seattle-based photographers and photography organizations

In November 2012, we were featured on KOMO 4 News. Unfortunately the actual video is no longer online, so instead we have a slightly wobbly hand recording of the TV as the spot aired.
