The BPG was founded in late 2010 by photographers who were members of Booth Western Art Museum. An extensive exhibit of Yellowstone National Park photography by nationally renowned photographer Tom Murphy in 2010, and the 2011 six-month exhibition of Ansel Adams’ original works generated more awareness of photography as art.

The Guild continues to grow and has 200 members from areas around Atlanta and north Georgia. Through its museum affiliation, the Guild is able to provide programming of a national scale. In addition to its monthly programming, the following national photography programs and exhibitions have been presented by the Booth Museum and BPG and are available on DVD at the museum:

  • Jay Dusard, Photography of the North American Cowboy, 2009
  • Tom Murphy, national wildlife photographer and naturalist, 2010
