photographer for hire

Doofus photographer for hire!! Or, well, not exactly. For free.

I broke my camera this weekend, but I have a fancy new one on the way. So, I thought I’d toss this out there: what part of the city do you feel is underrepresented in the photographic lexicon of the city? Sure, everyone has creepy shots of Union Station, and naturally about a billion of the Bellsouth tower. The token shot or two of Printer’s alley, and the river.

But is there one part of the city you think is absolutely gorgeous and is just begging for a totally awesome, skilled photographer to take advantage of? Or, failing that, for me to take advantage of?

Give me your suggestions, and I’ll go forth to take pictures.

    I no longer live in Nashville, but as someone who can say “If I were in town and could shoot for a while.”

    Downtown, the Arcade would be a good place, or just shooting buildings down there. I was in Nashville over the weekend and I thought the Stahlman building sign would make a good shot.

    Bellevue, Cheekwood, takes a certain time of year…but even now the Japanese garden would be an interesting study on a good day.

    The high and enormously long railroad bridge at Shelby Bottoms Park is an unappreciated icon in Nashville.

    I like the view of Deadrick from the War Memorial steps(especially when the bus terminals are busy), the courtyard at the downtown library, Bank of America plaza at lunchtime, the backside of the capitol building, the train going over the fountain at bicentennial park, and inside the Farmer’s market when it’s busy. Oh yeah… and although it isn’t gorgeous by any means, I like the alley in between the methadone clinic and the resource campus off of 8th Avenue across from Big Red.

    That’s a lot I know… sorry.

    I realize Ruins of the Industrial Age is a bit of a cliché, but Marathon Village is a prime example of the genre. A good photographer could find some interesting shots in all that weird old stuff.

    Hi Chris: Can I suggest taking some pics from the air? My hubbie is a pilot and I am sure would agree to take you for a quick ride. Email me if you are interested. I really like your photos, by the way…think you are very talented.

    East Nashville. Historic. Hip. Great architecture.

    That and just “the rest” of downtown. Not the Bellsouth building and Union Station… The new Library, War Memorial, the great architecture on 2nd Ave, etc.

    MISTER NASHVILLE is mistaken. That is not a methadone clinic on 8th across from Big Red. It is the Downtown Clinic where the homeless in Nashville can get primary medical care, dental, mental health, and substance abuse treatment services. Counseling for addictions (alcohol and drugs) – no methadone.

    Ahh, here’s where you asked for advice. I left my $.02 over at your other site, but I think you could do great things in Mt. Olivet Cemetary.
