A Celebration of the Arms Around Bainbridge Calendar, with Pete Saloutos
Every year photographer Pete Saloutos gives our community a very special gift: the Arms Around Bainbridge calendar. Proceeds from its sale benefit Arms Around Bainbridge, which provides support to members of the Bainbridge Island community facing overwhelming financial and emotional burdens associated with a serious illness. We are honored to host a reception for Pete and his latest calendar!
Selected as one of Nikon’s “Legends Behind the Lens,” Pete Saloutos is a 40+ year veteran of corporate, advertising and stock photography, and is an experienced instructor, lecturer and author. His award-winning images have appeared in materials published by Fortune 500 companies, businesses, magazines and agencies worldwide, including such diverse subjects as sports, medicine, landscapes, architecture and underwater photography.
Pete’s images follow his passions: As one of the founders and Board Members of Arms Around Bainbridge, every year he brings to life the 13 annual images of the calendar that is now a tradition, sold to benefit the organization’s recipients. The huge photographic wall murals hanging inside Bainbridge Aquatics Center surrounding Don Nakata Pool are also an expression of his love of swimming, as well as a symbol of his affection and gratitude for the master’s swim group (“BAM”) that has delighted him for many, many years.
