CPS Legend Bert Klein Has Passed Away

It is with deep sadness that we pass along to you that our own Bert Klein has succumbed to his fight with cancer and passed away Monday morning, July 20th. As many of you know, Bert was a member of CPS since 1967, was our President for 3 years and was our Photography School Director since 1980. More details will be coming later. Rest in Peace, Berthold.

Fallingwater Bus Trip Scheduled for Oct 17th!!

Mark your calendars for Saturday October 17th! CPS has reserved a bus to go to Fallingwater in Pennsylvania. It is considered a crown jewel in historic homes built not only in the USA, but around the world. Anytime of the year it looks spectacular but the Fall is a very special time. The Fallingwater has what all photographers seek, setting, wonderful exquisite waterfall, easy access, precise location where to shoot from, and a spectacular surrounding area with seasonal blooming flora maintained & designed by their renowned in-house horticulturist. If you haven't visited Fallingwater, it really should be on your bucket list. Link to Fallingwater; We will also make a late afternoon stop at Kentuck Knob : Although smaller than Fallingwater, it is also designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is not that far from Fallingwater, maybe a 15 minute drive. Link to Kentuck Knob; CPS has reserved the same bus we took to Greenfield village a few years ago. The cost is only $30 a person and that includes drinks and snacks provided by CPS. More information will be coming shortly about signing up for this trip and about the departure time that day. For now, you can check out our calendar for more information.
