ABOUT NASHVILLE
PHOTOGRAPHY
SOCIETY
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography meetups based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.

And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next one is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Nashville Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.
* Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitizer.

Brandon did a great job working with the class. He made sure we were all comfortable with our cameras, then got us all engaged in activities to make us think on the fly and adjust our cameras to get the best shot. I thought it was a really great class.

INSTRUCTORS
Nathan Marsland
Nathan was born in North Carolina, had grown up in Mississippi, and now currently lives in Nashville. He’s always been passionate about storytelling, and photography has always been one of his favorite mediums of telling tales, most notably through using film and hand developing his negatives as a way to add a more human element to his work. Nathan is primarily influenced through street photography, mostly through the works of Vivian Maier and Jim Marshall. As well as by Ansel Adams’ landscapes, and Hiroshi Sugimoto’s long exposure seascapes.
