FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ATLANTA PHOTOGRAPHERS GUILD
What's this Guild thing about?
The Atlanta Photographers Guild is a co-operative. We meet to share technique, equipment, and a good time. Official meetings and workshops are way below the price point of the general market because we believe that photography is exciting and that excitement should be shared.
Who runs this monkeyhouse?
APG began with Marc Turnley eating a sandwich at the newly opened Elliott Street Deli and Pub in July of 2006. Since then it's grown into over 2,000 online members.
A list of Admins and their specialties can be seen here.
When are meetings held?
Meetings are held on a weekly basis and feature aspiring and professional models as subjects. Pictures taken at Guild meetings are for portfolio / Flickr use ONLY unless an agreement between artist and model has been agreed to. Commercial / promotional use by model or photographer is prohibited unless agreed to by both parties.
Can I attend?
If you're 21+ and own a camera you're welcome to attend.

I have a friend who'd be a perfect model for an APG meeting. How do I get him / her in the mix?
Awesome! As much as possible we try to use models that APG members have worked with before. If you can vouch for the reliability and dedication of the person you're suggesting, please send us their contact information along with a link to a non-Myspace picture.
I've got something to sell. Can I post it in your group?
Please post photography and tech related items in this thread FOR SALE. This is not a place to put adverts for your business or services.
I see stuff titled Burlesque Camera Club, what is it?
APG's Burlesque Camera Club is a studio only photography club based on the camera clubs of Irving Klaw's photoclubs of the '50s.
I'm a member of Model Mayhem. Where can I find other members from the APG?
