In recognition of World Photography Day on Saturday, August 19, Fujifilm will present Create with Us, an immersive celebration of visual arts at Seattle’s iconic Fremont Studios. The free, hands-on event for anyone interested in photography, cinematography, or the arts, Create with Us will be a curated, public event that will showcase the power of image and video making from an emerging generation of image makers and content creators.
The one-day event will offer a variety of opportunities for creators to obtain both educational experience through workshops and demos, and hands-on time with Fujifilm digital camera and lens gear (including local photo-walks led by professional photographer members of the Fujifilm Creators program), and creative, hands-on experience in photo and video bays.
The event will feature a full video studio setup that will provide participants with an opportunity to try cameras and lenses from Fujifilm’s X Series and GFX System product lines, as well as the Fujinon series of cinema and broadcast lenses. Tours of an on-site broadcast truck will also be offered. Noted Emmy Award-winning cinematographer, M. David Mullen, ASC, will also be onsite, presenting on his work as director of photography for the award-winning show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
“Create with Us is an opportunity for creatives to connect, collaborate, learn, and, most importantly, build community,” said Victor Ha, vice president, Fujifilm North America Corporation, electronic imaging and optical devices divisions. “Through a variety of experiential activities, Create with Us will totally immerse attendees in creative workflows, from acquisition to output and provide them with a complete picture of the tools they will need on their creative journey. This event will be a great way for creatives of all levels and backgrounds to connect with each other in a meaningful way.”
“Create with Us will be part hands-on creation, part education, and part exhibition — a meeting of the minds for the image-making community, or anyone interested in the art of visual storytelling,” said Ha. “You do not have to be a Fujifilm user to attend. We welcome anyone interested in content creation to come by and Create with Us.”
