July Meeting Notes…

June Meeting and Upcoming 2018 Key Happenings

Excellent meeting on June 26th, with 16 SNAP people sharing about 35 sets of before/after shots. Great tips ranging from particular post-processing software and tools to preparing for the shoot itself.  It was clear that SNAP folks are out and about with all kinds of energy and vision.  It was fascinating to see the hours that go into the making of some of these prints.  The generosity of people who shared their work and who commented on issues and ideas was greatly appreciated.


See below for upcoming SNAP activities, and the following pages for more general opportunities.

S.N.A.P. Notes – January, 2017

The holidays are over, and now that we have had a chance to catch our collective breaths, we can get back to photography. Hope the holiday season was a joyful one for you and yours.

After a several month hiatus our January meeting will return to Dury’s, but this time at the new location at 1027 Murfreesboro Pike. We all owe a big thank you to Dury’s and it’s staff for providing this facility for our meeting. Likewise, another big thank you should go to Belmont United Methodist Church for sheltering our wondering tribe during the Dury’s move.


1027 Murfreesboro Pike, Nashville, Tennessee
800-824-2379 • 615-255-3456
M-F 9:00 – 5:30 • Saturday 10:00 – 3:00


Thanks also to S.N.A.P. member Richard Barrow for his November presentation, “Photography Along Our Greenways”.


Our Provence exhibit : “Inspired by Art” is under way. If you haven’t had a chance, drop in for a look. Our Juror is Wesley Paine, Director of the Parthenon, who will join our January SNAP meeting for a conversation about her selections.


I personally find the philosophy and taste of a juror to be enlightening about the show they curate, but also in reference to exhibits in general. Whether you have a piece in the Provence show or not, this should be a very useful presentation.


I am pleased to announce upcoming exhibits by two S.N.A.P. members, Susan Rauch (through March) and Bill Lund (through January):

On exhibit, “A Quiet Celebration of Rural Nolensville.” The images in this series were originally exhibited during “Slow Exposures” in Georgia last September. I am bringing the images ‘home’ to Nolensville and invite you to the Opening Reception on Thursday, Feb 2 from 4:30 – 6:30 at the Nolensville Historic School – 7248 Nolensville Rd.


If you know of any ‘calls for entry’ or other exhibition opportunities, please let me know and I will pass them along in this publication. This month we have a posting from Aperture magazine. Please see the web site for details:

Calls for Entry



Finally, I received this notice and am passing it along. I’m uncertain about whether the organization is non-profit, but my impression is of a commercial entity. As such, neither I nor S.N.A.P. endorse or recommend it. If anyone is concerned about the publication of information such as this, let me know. We can ask the club to develop a policy.

Hi Tom,

I love what SNAP is doing and wanted to pass along It’s like Airbnb for creative spaces and based here in Nashville. We help people find photo locations, studios, workshops, and event spaces. Whether it’s a mansion, an empty warehouse, an old VW van, or a state-of-the-art studio – It can easily be booked. I hope you’ll check it out!

Thank you,

Jon Howard

It was a dark and stormy night…and many more people than expected braved the elements to see John Guider’s photographs and to hear his discussion of the last leg of his “Great Loop” voyage. Thanks, John…great presentation (with apologies for the projector SNAFU).
