It is my deepest honor to have represented and served you as S.N.A.P. President. The time has come to pass the torch, and Emily Passino, email@example.com is now our new leader. Jen Vogus and Jo Fields will be assisting her, and, of course Kay and I will be back-up as well. David Morel continues as our web gee…uh, GUY and Wesley and Emily continue with our exhibits. Good luck to all of them. Continue reading
Next Meeting, New Location!
Due to Emily Passino’s efforts, SNAP now has a meeting place while Dury’s moves to their new home.
For September 27 and October 25 (and November 22, if we need it), we will meet here:
Room 124 Belmont United Methodist Church 2007 Acklen Avenue / PO Box 120098 Nashville, Tennessee 37212
Emily says: Best entrance is across from the community center on the side. Could be parking available in the back lot next to the side entrance. Certainly for this first meeting we’ll need some volunteers to arrive early and post signs and/or direct people to the meeting room and get it all set up. And Jo Fields has offered to make directional signs and to contribute the voluntary fee…Thank you Jo.
Our meeting this month will again be the popular ‘group critique’ in which we each bring 3-4 prints of projects on which we are currently working. After time for general viewing, we will briefly discuss our project and open it up for Q&A (critique) from the members. Depending on how many decide to participate, each person will have 10-15 minutes (?) So gather up your prints (don’t need to be mounted) and brush up on the Artists Statement (doesn’t need to be formal) about your project.
It would be useful if you would let me, Tom Keller, know that you are planning to participate, but if you decide to at the last minute, that’s OK too.

Fashion Photography Workshop…
David Morel sent information about a Fashion Workshop: I had one of the people leading an upcoming fashion workshop at Westlight Studios offering a discount to members of a different photo group I belong to. I know nothing about the people running the workshop, so I am not endorsing, just sharing. The discount code is: 100NSV_DM
