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.
Bill Lund, a member of SNAP, shares some images he shot during our recent artist reception for the SNAP exhibit at the Gordon Jewish Community Center.
The exhibit is up the rest of the June, so try to stop by and see the fabulous collection of images. Or join us for our next meeting, Tuesday, June 28th, at 6:30pm for a tour of the exhibit with the juror for the show, Paul Polycarpou, editor of the Nashville Arts Magazine.
