Opening Night: August 5th – 6:30pm
The Guerrilla Photo Group show opens to the public at 6:30 pm on Saturday, Aug. 5. Announcements are at 8 pm.
There will be a sponsor/artist preview starting at 530 pm.
GPG is thrilled to partner with Albuquerque Press Club to celebrate our 11th Anniversary. For the month of August, we’ll be highlighting the winners of our 3rd Wednesday Challenges – a fun little experiment that began at the beginning of 2017. (Photographers sign up each month not knowing what the Challenge will entail, then have ½ hour to complete their assignment. Winners are selected by public vote.)
We’ll also proudly present a new work show, entitled “Model Citizen”, which was designed to encourage models to form their own collaborative teams and give them creative control over their shoots. There will be a ballot box in the front room – please vote for your favorite image for a chance to win a signed print!
The Guerrilla Photo Group (GPG) is a FREE weekly creative collaborative focused on making photographic art in a social, fun and safe environment. Founded in 2006 by Albuquerque-based commercial photographer Rip Williams, the group is comprised of hundreds of local artists of all skill levels – Photographers, Models, Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists and Fashion Designers. Our mission is to provide the “five elements:” education, mentorship, collaboration, networking, and exhibition. The basic premise is this: if you throw total noobs and working pros into a studio-shaped blender once a week… giving them all full access to professional gear as well as each other’s respective creativity, passion and expertise… out the other side comes fantastic photography.
