Scanning For The Big Print

Volunteer Photographers
We recently spent some time with an active group of photographers in the Nashville area, and we were very impressed by their well-organized support of local charities. The members of the Brentwood Camera Club make themselves available to photograph participants in charitable fund-raising events such as runs, exhibitions and more formal gatherings. The assigned group of photographers may include both experienced professionals and beginner apprentices working in teams. The resulting photographs are posted on a website and participants can purchase prints from the club, with all proceeds donated back to the hosting charity. It’s a great way for photographers to gain experience and visibility while contributing a valuable service to the community. If you’re interested in promoting a similar project in your organization, the Brentwood Camera Club will generously share more information with you. Visit their website at www.brentwoodcameraclub.org.

We hope you’ll stop by for a visit soon at www.georgelepp.com.
