Larey McDaniel

Larey McDaniel got his first clarinet and his first camera at about the same time. His music studies began in the fourth grade and the following year he inaugurated his new Kodak Brownie camera on a family trip to Glacier National Park. He’s been enthralled with music and photography ever since.

Larey was a member of the Seattle Symphony from 1961 through 2014, playing clarinet and bass clarinet and has been showing his photography at Parklane Gallery since 2002.

Larey shoots with a Sony mirrorless camera as well as his always present iPhone and edits in Adobe Lightroom with additional adjustments in Photoshop.
