Alan Sparks – A & K Photography at GroWashington during Everett Art Walk

Al is a native of Washington State, born and raised in Seattle. After moving around between Vancouver and Lynnwood, he and his wife Karen settled down for the long haul in Snohomish in 1993.

His initial interest in photography started while attempting to photograph his kids sporting events. Noting at this time that he had neither the necessary skills or the equipment, Al began to upgrade both. As his skills and results improved, he moved on as the team photographer for the Snohomish High School Panther wrestling and football teams.

His interests eventually drifted towards capturing the absolute beauty of God’s creation, which he has focused on for the past decade. Additionally, Al has a great appreciation for architecture and other objects of beauty created by human hands and minds.

Plan to stop into GroWashington at 3013 Colby from 5 to 9pm on February 15th to meet Alan and see is magnificent photographs. You can find his images online at
