How we are organized
SNAP, the Society of Nashville’s Artistic Photographers, is an informal group of photographers dedicated to promoting fine art photography in Nashville. We do not have membership dues which means that we also do not have “smart” technology. In other words, to get our news and to be included in SNAP meetings, announcements, exhibits, and the like, you need to take a minute and sign up for the yahoo group emails, register through the google doc, and if you are a social media user, join our SNAP group and follow us on Instagram.
To make the most of SNAP, you also need to put the 4th Tuesday on your calendar and come to as many meetings as you can. See “At A Glance” for current calendar.
How to participate
To be added to the primary mailing group, go to SNAP Yahoo Group and sign up.
When you join the Yahoo Group, you don’t have to have a yahoo email. You decide at what email address you wish to receive the updates and messages, and you can choose to receive these emails individually (as most do) or as a digest.
This is the primary means of communication from the President and Committees, to the membership. We do not have many postings to the group throughout the month (and thus not a lot of email). The group membership is moderated and members must be approved.
To participate in SNAP Exhibits, register here. Note, this is required in order to participate in our exhibitions. Also note, this does not add you to the primary email
To stay abreast of not only SNAP news, but general exhibits, articles and resources related to fine art photography, go to Facebook and join Society of Nashville’s Artistic Photographers page.
Used for public relations, promotion of upcoming meetings, events and shows, and for timely alerts about opportunities of interest, this site is mostly un-moderated. Remember, postings and status updates on this site go to everyone on Facebook, but not necessarily to every member of SNAP.

Notes from Copyright Lecture on 3/26/13
Chris Hollo reports that ASMP has put a lot of work into the area of copyright and has a complete section on the ASMP website on the subject,
including a thorough walk through, so anyone can register their images.
He indicates that most any question can be answered by looking through the copyright section of this site.
