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.
REVIEWS
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
Elizabeth Allen
Lizzy was born and raised in Nashville and made moves to Boulder, CO, where she studied fine art photography and photojournalism; and then to Los Angeles, where she settled into a groove of mostly product photography and social media freelancing. Always with a camera in hand, she ensures her eye maintains its spark for curious subjects, capturing portraits of friends, events, and the bustling energy of the everyday world. Lizzy's love for her cat and dog are leveled with her love of photography and passion for others' understanding of the craft.
Lauren Mason
Lauren Mason is a photographer and videographer based in Nashville, TN (originally from Orlando, FL). She has over a decade of professional experience in photography and has shot advertisements, food, social media content, weddings, portraits, and everything in between. Her work has been featured in places like USA Today, CNBC, Fox News, and Bustle. While she does currently work in advertising, her favorite type of photography will always be highly stylized portraiture. When she’s not working she’s either working toward her master’s degree in Film/TV production, or she’s relaxing at home with her husband and two dogs.
Brandon Fant
Brandon Fant is a professional photographer in the Nashville area, originally from Alabama. He has been shooting photography for over ten years using different mediums of photography. These focuses consist of portrait, product, and content creation photography. He enjoys shooting street & travel photography. His teaching style is summed up in this quote, "The change we are looking for, lies within the work we are avoiding."
