SNAP invites each of you who are currently active members to submit entries for our annual Hotel Preston show, to be held August – December 2019. This venue encourages artistic creativity within the bounds of “family friendly” photography. The theme described more fully below will be “Sense of Connections,” building on the 2018 show, “Sense of Place,” but from a broader perspective. Be sure and read the description carefully to see what the juror and the hotel are looking for with this show.
Call for SNAP Submissions – 2018|Annual JCC Show
SNAP would like to invite each of you to submit entries for our annual JCC show, to be held at the Gordon Jewish Community Center (http://www.nashvillejcc.org/) on Percy Warner Blvd during the month of September. See more about eligibility below. This has traditionally been the major exhibition for SNAP each year, so we want to encourage everyone to participate.
Theme: There is no “theme” for this show, but the JCC can reject photos with images of full frontal nudity, violent subject matter, and religious symbolism. They are looking for “family friendly” images. Past shows have highlighted a broad variety of subjects and styles. For this show, the juror will be looking for photography that might be called “straight photography,” shot more from the heart than from the head.
As a SNAP member, you are invited and encouraged to submit photos for our next SNAP Photography Show. See more about eligibility below.
Theme: LANDMARKS. For this show, “landmarks” can mean a prominent object or feature of a landscape or town, especially those that enable someone to establish their location – something perhaps iconic representing that place or neighborhood. Might include buildings, monuments or other structures; might be of cultural or historical significance. Or more broadly, might be something signifying an important stage or turning point or benchmark.
Juror: The juror for this exhibit is Emily Naff, an Associate Professor of Photography at Nashville State Community College, who has lead several Study Abroad Programs (e.g., the Netherlands, Italy, Brazil and Japan). Her work may be seen at https://www.emilynaff.com/index.
Venue: Green Hills Library, 3701 Benham Avenue, Nashville 37215 https://library.nashville.org/locations/green-hills-branch.
Here are the details for our next Provence SNAP Photography Show:
Theme: WORK. Again, let your imagination roll!
Juror: The juror for this exhibit is Michael Ray Nott (http://www.michaelraynott.com/ ), noted for outstanding graphic black & white Street Photography. Nott has studied under Gerry Winogrand, and has a design and cultural sensibility that should make this upcoming exhibit very rich.

Hi, SNAPpers! I hope everyone is taking advantage of the spring-like weather to get out and shoot. At our last meeting Byron Jorjorian spoke on his approach to photographing nature in all its forms. Thanks, Byron for a great presentation.
Our March meeting should be a real treat…a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to see the Irving Penn exhibit. Unfortunately our member docent, Susan Striepe, is in the process of completing her thesis and is not working with the Frist center this semester. That means I will be scheduling the tour and handling the finances (Oh, boy!).
Here are the long-awaited details for our next Provence SNAP Photography Show:
Theme: NIGHT. Again, let your imagination roll!
Juror: The juror for this exhibit is Heather Lose, a creative director and fine art photographer who helped co-found the Nashville Community Darkroom and, more recently, WXNA 101.5 FM. She loves the nightlife; she’s got to boogie. See www.HeatherLose.com.
What a lovely, if dry, Fall this has been! Perfect weather for photography…hope everyone has been able to take advantage and shot some more great art! Speaking of ‘Art’, Emily, Wesley and David have been busy organizing our next Provence exhibit (yes, it’s that time already). Click here for the essential information you need, but hurry, time is short.
If you missed last month’s SNAP meeting, you missed an excellent presentation about “slow shutter”, aka “long exposure” photography. Denny Adcock and and Stanton Tubb discussed techniques and showed some of their outstanding work. Thanks guys for a great discussion. For those encouraged to try (or continue) with this form of photography, I am also posting two articles and a guide as separate PDF files.

IMPORTANT: NEW EVENT
Sunday, April 24 is World Wide Pin Hole Photography Day! Our guest speakers for our April
26 SNAP meeting, Denny Adcock and Gerald Figal have organized a pin hole shoot as part of this event. Interested persons meet on Sunday at the Carillon at the Bicentennial Mall around 1pm. There should be adequate parking in that area. Denny has a pin hole Nikon body cap he can loan and Gerald has a couple of cameras. Gerald is also willing to process and scan B/W film.
For details you can contact him: email@example.com This should be an informative and fun shoot, so if you are just beginning your pin hole journey or are an old China hand, be sure to turn out. “At the meeting we’ll talk about what we shot, with emphasis on the variety of things one can do with a pinhole camera, things not easily done with lens cameras.” http://pinholeday.org/
This Thursday evening, April 21st, Provence will host a reception for SNAP’s latest exhibit, “Patterns”. Come see the entire collection of images selected by our juror, Noah Saterstrom. The reception will run from 5pm – 7pm at the Hillsboro Village venue.

On the heels of outstanding submissions for the next Provence SNAP Photography Show, SNAP would like to invite each of you to submit entries for our annual JCC show, to be held at the Gordon Jewish Community Center (http://www.nashvillejcc.org/) on Percy Warner Blvd at the end of May.
Spring is here a couple of weeks early and so is “SNAP! Notes”. That is because our March meeting was a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts for a new photography exhibit, “The Power of Pictures: Early Soviet Photography and Film”. Susan Striepe, a new SNAP member, lead a personalized tour for us, after we attended the curators presentation. The show will be up through July 4, and the catalog is available through the Frist giftshop.
We’re excited to open the call for entries to next SNAP Photography Show to be held at Provence Bakery in Hillsboro Village in April. This show will have the theme: “patterns“. Interpret this however your creative mind sees it – no restrictions on color, subject, processing or viewpoint. The patterns may be natural or man-made, evoking rhythm and maybe a sense of harmony (or disharmony, if the pattern is broken).
This is open to SNAP members only — easy to become a Snap Member just attend a meeting — and we encourage everyone to participate!
The show will be hung in early April, with an Artists Reception soon thereafter. Our juror is Noah Saterstrom, You can read more on his work at http://www.noahsaterstrom.com.
Our current and ongoing exhibit space at Provence Bakery is filled with street photography images. The images for the show were selected by our juror, street photographer Robert McCurley.
