Street Photography Meetup

Sunday the 2nd of October
Market Square and Old City - 5pm - 2 hours
I'm keeping this class simple. It's focus is for me to get to know everyone, their learning styles, any disability they have and temperature tolerances; that may affect their ability to participate in some themes and locations. I also want the participants to get to know me, and have a nice relaxed "let's all introduce ourselves and have a friendly Q&A session." We can have coffee, drinks and light shareables while we are meeting, followed by an hour, give or take, in the Market Square & Old City area. I'm perfectly okay with staying an extra hour for those who would like to, though I expect most will want to be done by 7:00 p.m. I will hang around for those who would like more time.

ABOUT KNOXVILLE
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Knoxville.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next one is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Knoxville Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.


We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.

INSTRUCTORS
Sherrie Williams
Sherrie Williams has been a working professional photographer since completing her photography courses in college in 1999. Although she longer pursue this FT as her self employment, Sherrie does take occasional bookings. Photography is now almost entirely her passion , love, and hobby, without the constraints and pressure of financial obligations. Sherrie has covered about every genre of photography in the last 22 years, with primary focus on portraiture, weddings and musician photography. In her spare time, she will frequently enjoy her love of nature, wildlife and scenic photography. Sherrie also has a strong love of writing, poetry and literature, which plays well into the age of social media and online marketing. As a mother of four grown children and three granddaughters, she has taken thousands of photos just of her own family in the last 22 years, much to the chagrin of her children and family at gatherings. Sherrie was also raised on working farm in the Foothills of NC, and has a consuming love of all animals and all of nature. She looks forward to future adventures in learning together as instructor, students and members. A touch of humor to close, Sherrie switched to digital photography from film in 2010, and stated it was like watching her grandmother give up her zenith floor model TV. She looks forward to meeting everyone!
