Photography Outings

Overview

Each month the Brentwood Photography Group hosts a themed outing for members to join and take some great shots of places you might not ordinarily get to see.  Past outings have taken us to old churches, abandoned factories, car shows, and small towns around Tennessee and surrounding states.

Following the Outing, you can send one image to the event organizer and this will be added to our Outings Gallery page. Your image should be a .jpg sized to 2000 pixels along the longest edge.

Hold Harmless Agreement​

For any outing you wish to join, please download, sign and return this Hold Harmless Agreement.

If you would like to bring a family member or friend they must become a member of the Group before accompanying you.

Details:

This outing will involve shooting topics that will be drawn at random and assigned to small groups of 4-5 photographers. Please include suggested topics when you RSVP. The images will be taken at the Factory, Farmer’s Market, or Harlinsdale Farm.

Submitted topics should be one or two words and open ended. Good examples would be “Blue”, “Lines”, “Patterns”, “Silhouettes”.

As this is a private property the management does have a few restrictions:

  • Don’t take pictures of customers if they do not want photos taken.
  • No pictures of Store Signage.
  • No pictures on the Liberty Pike (South) side of the property between the large “Rusty” statue and the water tower.
  • No pictures on the inside side hallway next to Daughter’s Bakery.

I also indicated we would be wearing club ID’s.

The outing will end with Lunch at a yet to be determined location. Afterwards, you are on your own to head home or do some more shooting. The Franklin Square offers some opportunities.

Please reply to outings@brentwoodphotographygroup.org if you plan on attending. Don’t forget to submit topics!

We will require each participant to download, print and sign a Hold Harmless Agreement. Bring this with you as I will collect them when we meet.
