Head to Nashville, the heart and soul of country music, with your Nikon Mentors Deanne Fitzmaurice and Reed Hoffmann. Brimming with legendary dance halls and old country heritage, this exciting Mentor Series photo adventure will be sure to rock. We’ll begin our weekend at the stately Belle Meade Plantation and photograph models dressed in period costumes using the plantation grounds and gardens as your backdrop. Then as the evening light starts to blanket the sky, we’ll capture shots of the Parthenon, a full-scale recreation of the Parthenon in Athens. Then we’ll end our first day at the Shelby Bridge where Nashville’s downtown skyline will be on full display.
On Saturday, we’ll absorb the true culture that Nashville has to offer. You’ll get to observe the process and craftsmanship in creating Nashville’s iconic instrument, the guitar, then we’ll venture to the world famous Wildhorse Saloon to photograph cowboys and cowgirls line dancing. Next, photograph portraits of models dressed in cowboy and cowgirl attire against a rustic barn nestled in trees, and end the day at Music Row as the colorful neon signs line the music-filled streets. On our final day we will head to Cheekwood Botanical Garden and photograph sculptures, mansions and gardens. Sign up today.
