“I still learn something new about photography just about every day,” Dick Dougall, 90, recently told the Tennessean.

And for more than 20 years, Dougall has shared that knowledge with members of the community photography group he founded.

He started Brentwood Photography Group in 1998 and added Lunch Bunch shortly after in 1999.   

According to a news release about both photography groups, “BPG has grown to become a leading resource for photographers in the Nashville-Brentwood-Franklin community. Today it includes nearly 200 members at all skill levels — beginning, amateur and professional photographers, with skills ranging from novice to expert.”

The Lunch Bunch group supports the growth of their photographic skills through education and exhibitions of photographic accomplishments. 

Through December, the work of 13 Lunch Bunch members will be on display in an exhibit called “We’re Still Learning” at the Williamson County Public Library before it moves to Square Market & Cafe in Columbia, Tennessee, for the month of January.

“This exhibit is an excellent opportunity for the people of Williamson County to enjoy some excellent works of photographic art and learn about the great educational opportunities afforded by the study of photography,” Dougall said.

The group is built on creating friendships with others who share a love of photography. Lunch Bunch members meet once a month to listen to guest speakers, participate in group outings and strengthen their skills.
