Survey for individual portfolio/photography work review. Click here to access a 2 question survey around a future session on having your work reviewed by one of SPS’ experienced members.

We have a fall exhibition that will be included in the ACP program. The theme is “Atlanta Seen”. More information will be forth coming in the Call For Entries announcement that’s expected in the next 2 weeks.

SPS will be participating in this years NGC3 shootout to be held in Chattanooga TN on September 16. Greg Comstock will be captaining the event but we are in need of a co-captain to help organize our SPS team. Look for a future Meetup event announcement.

The club has purchased an LED light that should help with the print reviews. We are also looking to have blackout drapes made to put on the sun side of the Fellowship Hall. Those will not be in place until June’s meeting.

Upcoming Events

Tonight’s meeting will be with Mary Margaret Cornwell, Photography Curator at the Booth Museum. She’ll be covering how she came to the Booth Museum, her background, archival preservation, and the upcoming gallery exhibit, “Ansel Adams: The Masterworks”.

Thursday, May 25, APS is sponsoring a presentation by world-renowned photographer Jim Zuckerman.  It will be held at 7:30PM at First Baptist Church of Decatur, 308 Clairemont Ave. Decatur.  His presentation will be based on how he has dealt with numerous challenges while traveling and shooting. He will also weave in some interesting stories, like the stupidest thing any photographer has ever done!
