I have been involve in photography her in te Atlanta area for several years. I have tried, with no real success, to find some active LF folks that get together shot n teach each other. I haave been to many of thephoto shops, photo club meetings etc. but no cigar. You would think that a city the size of Atlanta would have a group of active LF shooters.
If you can pass on any information to me I sure would appreciate it.

From a Google search of the forum, in and around Atlanta: Jim Michael, buggz, JWebb, CameraMan65.

I think that the "atl" in user atlcruiser is also the Atlanta area.

A couple of years ago I donated some equipment to a school that teaches photography in or near Atlanta; I'll see if I can dig up the contact information (teachers tend to be alert to such things).

Somebody must have an informed opinion.

I'm the ATL area. I don't know of any LF groups, but I'd be interested too.

Consider starting a MeetUp group - bet you'll get people crawling out if the woodwork.... The one in the Bay Area is quite active.

I stayed near Atlanta a while back and I couldn't find anything either, there was a photo club near where I was living at the time so I went one night and they was teaching a class on sensor cleaning, I couldn't find my sensor so I figured this club wasn't for me :p

Anyone in the Atlanta area that would be interested in a LF group, you can send me a PM here or respond to this post.
I know Ann Clancy and she is a very good photographer and teacher but she primarily shoots digital now. I have never spoke to Jeff at quality cameras but I will check with him...thanks for that tip.

While I don't live in the Atlanta area anymore I am up there semi-regularly to visit family or just spend time in the mountains. So figured I'd post here in case y'all plan something :D

I would be but it is a bit far. 3 hr drive. Weekends might be doable. Besides I need to get to Maple Street Guitars more often.

George at Maple Street Guitars is a great guy. He has played several of the guitars I made and even had a couple in his shop for sale several years ago.
Those who are interested what general area of Atlanta/GA are you located? I live in Monroe which is about half way between the city and Athens going out Hwy 78 past SStone Mountain Park.

I'm in as well. I'm up in Marietta. There's a film photography group that gets together monthly in ATL. There was a LF meetup a couple months ago, but I think that was a one and done instance.

I would still like to form a group but between now and the 1st of the year is going to be difficult for me...

Late to the party but I would like to join when y'all get together. I'm in Johns creek/Suwanee area.


Note: There were some members of the Roswell Photo Society that shot LF a few years back also.

I'm in Johns Creek, hopefully it'll warm up a little this weekend, thinking about heading over to Roswell mill or maybe the greenway of Mcfarland.
