Photography & Nashville

Traveling to Nashville, TN for Imaging USA (a photography convention) was such an amazing experience! I’d always wanted to visit Tennessee (outside the airport!) and although going in January wouldn’t be my first choice, I decided to make the best of it!

A bunch of us Maine photographers (friends over competition!) pitched in to get an AirBnb and rental car to save on cost. 5 days of exploring Nashville, photography classes, an expo, and inspiration!

While we were there Music City saw some of the coldest temperatures on record. Not exactly what us New Englanders wanted to deal with when we flew south, but we handled it alright!

After living in Austin, TX for 6 years I can tell that Nashville is the next Austin. A vibrant music scene, culture, population boom, and so much to offer the young generation!

Although I was bummed I didn’t run in to Justin Timberlake, there is always next time! Haha
