Welcome to the Booth Photography Guild! An overwhelming response to the Booth Museum's recent photography exhibitions led to the creation of the Booth Photography Guild (BPG). An extensive exhibit of Yellowstone National Park photography by nationally-renowned photographer Tom Murphy in 2010, and the 2011 six-month exhibit of Ansel Adams' original work have generated more awareness of Booth Museum among photographers.
Organized by local and Atlanta photographers and sponsored by Booth Western Art Museum, BPG offers educational opportunities and programming related to photography. The Guild is open to anyone interested in photography, regardless of their skill level.
The Guild meets monthly and offers an educational program by an accomplished guest speaker, as well as an informal anonymous critique of the members' work by the speaker. Members may participate in biennial juried exhibits at the Museum, in organized field trips and photography outings, as well as workshops at the Museum. A mentoring program is currently being developed.
BPG is intended for photographers of all levels and experience so as to continue mastering their skills while networking with other photographers. Guests are invited to attend. Meetings are from 7 - 9 pm on the second Tuesday of each month in the Bergman Theatre or the Ballroom inside the Booth Western Art Museum. Membership in the BPG is $24 per year in addition to a Booth membership. For more information, contact Liz Gentry at 770 387-1300 ext 7235, or visit www.boothmuseum.org and click "Education."
