How do the photos that you take with your cell phone turn out? Do you share photos taken with your tablet? Maybe you still love your SLR? If so, you can be a parish photog for Church of the Redeemer.
The term “photog” is an informal term for a photographer. Many times, photog is the term used at a newspaper or magazine. While press photography can win awards, it typically doesn’t. Even if it isn’t award winning, the photog illustrates the story.
We need you to be a photog for Holy Week at Church of the Redeemer.
These people have been parish photogs
You have always been invited and encouraged to share pictures. These pictures on the Redeemer website were all shared by someone in Church of the Redeemer.
- John Pearson
- Kate Donaldson
- Don Vollema
- Tom Byrd
In addition to photos used on the website, this cover art used on the Font was based on a picture taken by Susan Switzer.
In a parish dedicated to expressing our faith through the arts, it is only natural we have some photogs at Church of the Redeemer.

Holy Week Photography Contest (Diocese of Olympia)
The Diocese of Olympia is lookingn for photos to represent any aspect of Holy Week. They want you to be creative. The best landscape-oriented photo will be featured on the diocesan Facebook page for two weeks. The best portrait-oriented photo will be on the welcome screen at Diocean House in Seattle.

The Holy Week 2015 Album for Church of the Redeemer
You are invited to send photos for the Holy Week 2015 album on the Flickr page of Church of the Redeemer. Send your photos illustrating Holy Week to email@example.com. They will be assembled after Easter Day in a newly-created album.
Sending photos to Church of the Redeemer is not a contest. The whole parish wins when you send your photos. However, you may win a little bit more. Photos may be used for cover photos on the Font and Sunday Bulletin.
Remember to be a good photog for Redeemer.
- Don’t become the center of attention while shooting. Well, at least try. Keep the main thing the main thing.
- Identify people, when appropriate. It is true that most people may know who is in the picture today. How about ten years from now? (There are probably a few non-identifiable people on the Flickr page for Church of the Redeemer.)
- Turn off your flash during all worship services, even when outside in the daytime on Palm Sunday. See Rule #1. Save the fill-in flash for posed pictures. (There is nothing necessarily wrong with a posed picture.)
Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
