I am a local Bellingham photographer handling many types of photography. While I love to shoot everything from weddings to events, I really thrive photographing sporting events. I don't know about you, but for me there is not much that can beat the smell of fresh cut grass on a cool crisp fall Friday evening standing on the 50 with a camera!

I have been making photos since I was 17 years old, getting started at North Kitsap High School with a photography class. After graduation, I continued my new found love and turned my creative expression in to a college education. I graduated from Western Washington University with a BA in Visual Communications: Graphic Arts and Photography in the spring of 1993. My final college project was an internship with the Bellingham Herald as a photographer.

I am pleased to continue developing photography and a photographers community with through out Northwestern Washington. If you have any photography or photo order questions, or to find out how to contribute your photographic passion to the WPANetwork please email me at [email protected]

Thanks again for your time!

My name is Geoff Vlcek and I am a photographer living in Lynnwood. I was born in New Hampshire but I have lived on Nantucket Island, Illinois, Michigan, West Seattle, Shoreline, Edmonds, Mill Creek & Kent. I have enjoyed taking photos ever since 2005 when I started visiting sports stadiums around the US. I've now been to over 70 stadiums in 3 countries. I really started taking photos when I took my first trip abroad in 2010 where I visited 10 countries in 27 days. Since May of 2010 I've now been to 14 countries, 8 states and Puerto Rico.

In 2012 I found my love for sports photography and have had photos posted to a few websites. I shoot for Tilted Thunder Roller Derby, UW sports, Rugby Magazine and I was just hired by the Everett Reign as their team photographer. If there is sports going on near me then I try to be there to shoot photos! So if you see me then say hi. :)

I shoot much more than just sports, so if you have an idea or a request for team, social media, family or even senior photos then let me know. Check out my work at and

I look forward to shooting photos for Wesco Athletics and hope everyone enjoys them. Take care and take good photos!

Originally from Seattle, I retired in Oak Harbor after serving twenty-four years in the United States Navy. While in the service I served instructor and recruiter duty and deployed eight times aboard Navy ships, including 3 times to the Persian Gulf. In my travels I've been to all fifty states and eighteen foreign countries, among those were Israel, Cuba, Thailand and Fiji. I've been taking photos since high school, and now concentrate almost exclusively on Oak Harbor High School sports. Both my wife and I are heavily involved in local youth and school sports, giving us a way to give back to the community. I have a son who plays 3 sports here in Oak Harbor and a daughter at the University of Washington.

Steve's Galleries
Steve has been shooting action photography since high school when he took photos for his high school yearbook. He is currently a middle school teacher and coach, as well as his school's yearbook advisor. As a yearbook advisor he not only supervises and instructs students on the fundamentals of yearbook layout and design, but also on the many aspects of beginning basic photography. Under his supervision his students get to shoot a wide variety of school sports, candids, school concerts and marching band parades, as well as all things that happen day to day in a school setting. Encouraging and helping others learn to take better quality photos contributes to his satisfying career as a teacher.

In his spare time he shoots high school sports, off-road desert motorcycle racing, dog shows and dog portraits as well as anything else that appeals at the moment. Most of his work can be found at and He can also be emailed at [email protected] for any special requests or notifications
