Photography will be limited to the boundaries of Hamilton County, TN.  Since Chattanooga borders Georgia, it gets a bit tricky to determine the boundaries of Georgia and Tennessee - especially on Lookout Mountain - so we will provide Hamilton County maps for you.  

With the beautiful Tennessee River Walk, Coolidge Park, the architecture of Downtown Chattanooga, the Tennessee Aquarium, the Chattanooga Choo-Choo, and tons more, you will find plenty to photograph...but then, the photo categories selected on the morning of the Shootout will drive that, won't they?

Why not bring your family, spouse, or non-shooting friends for the entire weekend to enjoy all Chattanooga has to offer, such as the Discovery Museum, Rock City, Ruby Falls and Point Park, in addition to the ones mentioned previously.

If you have a particular hotel preference not listed above, I am sure you will find it here in Chattanooga. The area you want to stay in is Downtown --to be close to the meeting location. However, there are lots of nice hotels with free parking in the Hamilton Place Mall area and it is just a 15-20 minute drive from there to Chattanooga Christian School. Find out about hotels and restaurants at the website of the Chattanooga Convention and Visitors Bureau, chattanoogafun.com.

So come on and scope us out. I think you’re going to love this year’s Shootout Location!

All the rules are featured on the NG3C website, right here! There will be lots of event changes and additions as the day draws near and as details are firmed up -- so check back often.

It's Chattanooga!

As the 2016 NG3C Shootout was coming to a close last November, I was sitting in the darkened auditorium at Douglasville High School feeling a bit let down that the Shootout was over.

Suddenly I heard the crowd give wild applause as it was announced that the 2017 NG3C Shootout would be taking place on Saturday, September 16th IN CHATTANOOGA!!! – one of the premier places for events in the Southeast.

What a great feeling! I started thinking of all the really awesome photographic subjects around Chattanooga and began seriously working out my strategy
in my mind.

Chattanooga is an exceptionally photogenic city. I look forward to it. –Jerrie Paschal, Cobb Photographic Society
