February SNAP Notes…

Next Meeting:

Winter, at least what passes for it around here, proceeds. Personally, I shot as much, or more, during this time of year than in the summer. For a transplanted Yankee, southern summers are like northern winters: a time to stay in climate controlled environs. Since now and during the upcoming Spring is a good time for nature photography, our speaker this month is Byron Jorjorian.

“Fine art photographer, Byron Jorjorian has been capturing the natural world on film for over 30 years. He is considered by many to be one of the nation’s premier fine art nature photographers. With over 400,000 images in his files, his photographs have appeared on nationally published greeting cards, calendars, magazines, posters, murals, fine art prints, brochures, and advertising. Byron has had over 12,000 images published and more than 22,000 prints installed comprising more than 1,200 projects in various markets worldwide.”

Byron will be discussing his approach to photographing at our February meeting, Tuesday, 28th, at Dury’s, 6:30 pm. We all owe a big thank you to Dury’s and their staff for providing this facility for our meeting.

Wendy Whitmore has forwarded this announcement. S.N.A.P. has supported this opportunity in the past, and we (graybeards of the club) encourage everyone to seriously consider participating. It says, in part:

I hope 2017 is off to a great start for you and the SNAP community! Here at ABC, we’ve just opened applications for our 4th cohort of Periscope: Artist Entrepreneur Training, and would love to have your help recruiting an outstanding class.

I’m writing to ask for your help in encouraging some of Nashville’s top artistic photographers to apply to participate in this opportunity. We would love to see the photography community well-represented!

Periscope: Artist Entrepreneur Training

PERISCOPE is a six-week intensive training opportunity hosted at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center (EC) that empowers working artists to see their vision through an entrepreneurial lens. Led by the EC’s Director of Education, along with break-out sessions facilitated with Nashville’s top arts professionals, Periscope gives artists the perspective and tools to organize, plan, and sustain their creative careers with the goal of preparing each artist to take their career to the next level.

Applications Due March 6th

The program is designed to be a transformative experience for each artist, sparking the moment when their career will really start to take off. Periscope’s provides:

    • Training: 6 weeks of professional development training for working artists
    • Exchange: Artists share best practices with interdisciplinary peers through small group work
    • Mentorship: Each artist is paired one-on-one with a high-caliber mentor
    • Exposure: Year-round opportunities to celebrate the work of alumni artists, plus red-letter visibility at the culminating celebration, the Periscope Pitch Event in fall 2017

Dana Gluckstein

DIGNITY: Tribes in Transition MTSU’s Baldwin Photographic Gallery through April 6

You might marvel at the variety of people depicted in her travels throughout the world or her ability to use light to highlight features and suggest narratives. But that’s just the first step toward appreciating the greater cause that motivates her.
