Ken Smith Founds "Navigate Photography" Company with Travel Industry Emphasis


After a long career with Seattle-based Glazer's Camera, including 12 years as general manager, Ken Smith has left the firm to create Navigate Photography, a company designed to connect the travel industry with the photographic industry. The new company will provide a variety of services, including workshops on cruise ships, land-based expeditions, rental equipment to cruise passengers, photographic consultation to businesses and large-format printing.

Another of Smith's new ventures, Photo Partners — a partnership with Dennis Wilson and Marc Weinberg — will produce Navigate Photography Seattle 2009, a travel-focused photographic trade show with educational seminars. The event will be held at the Lynnwood Convention Center in Lynnwood, Wash., April 24-26, 2009.
