What we're about

The Smyrna chapter of the Georgia Nature Photographers Association (GNPA) is one of six chapters statewide.

We are dedicated to helping nature photographers of all levels improve their photography, learn new skills, and meet other like-minded photographers who are ready to have fun and help you with your shared passion.

You are welcome to join our meetup even if you are not a GNPA member; however, there are some activities like field trips and competitions that are not open to non-GNPA members. If you’d like to join GNPA, visit https://www.gnpa.org and click JOIN THE GNPA (https://www.gnpa.org/index.php/join-the-gnpa).

We also encourage you to join the other GNPA chapter Meetup groups so that you can be in the know about all of the photography activities planned in the Atlanta metro area. And please check out the Pages tab on this site where you will be able to see information about Contests and Field trips.

We meet once a month, generally the third Thursday, in the Smyrna Community Center—everyone is welcome and we hope to see you at our next monthly meeting!
