Janet Neuhauser is a photographer and educator, currently based in Seattle, Washington. She is either shooting and working on her own photography or teaching it. While taking her first photography class over 30 years ago, she knew she was hooked.  As a photographer, she is an omnivore, in love with all types of photography and processes.

After receiving a MFA in Photography  from Pratt Institute in 1985, Janet started to teach part-time. She discovered she loved teaching much more than working as a  free-lance editorial photographer which she had done for several years in New York City. Since 1990, she has  taught photography full-time, in a variety of venues, from International Center of Photography in NYC to colleges and universities and in two high schools in Washington state.

The image above  is one of Janet’s  first self-portraits, shot with the 8 x 10 view camera in the early 1980′s.  Janet has always been interested in capturing time by blurring part or all of the image.  This image is an 8 x 10  contact print.

Janet continues her work in her studio in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle. She teaches at at Photographic Center Northwest and Bainbridge High School.   Janet founded the Pinhole Project in 2013 and continues to direct it.   She works in both  the analog and digital photography  worlds.  For the last five  years, she has been shooting long exposure, low ISO night photographs in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle.  She has also been shooting the landscape with color film in a 4 x 5 pinhole camera. Her  studio is home to  over thirty years of photographic images, all for sale.  If you would like to arrange a studio visit, please contact her at the email/ listed below.
