The people have spoken.

Established in 1935, Glazer’s Camera has been supplying Seattle’s shutterbugs with the equipment and knowledge to take excellent photos for more than 80 years. Having trouble making your photos “pop” thanks to Seattle’s usually dreary weather? Glazer’s will enable you to create an artificial sun of your own with their fully stocked lighting department. If purchasing a new camera is out of the question, Glazer’s also rents equipment. Let’s not forget about the classes, taught by professional photographers; you can even learn the finer points of wildlife photography, so get out there and start snapping. 811 Republican St., 624-1100
