8/26 Veterans Bridge Tour - NEW UPDATE!

All available slots for this tour have been filled. Any additional inquiries will be placed on a wait list. We're pleased to announce that we've been able to secure a private tour of the lower level of the Veterans Memorial Bridge for CPS Members and current students! While the bridge will be open to the general public on August 19th, crowds will make any decent photography almost impossible. Our tour will be limited to fellow photographers and offer unobstructed views. This tour is FREE but advance registration is required and attendance is limited. See the calendar listing for full details.

Upcoming Member Share and Tell Presentation

Join us before the October 13th People Competition for this 30 minute presentation you really don't want to miss. Dan Kozminski and Dave Wooldridge will discuss their photography project in which digital cameras were given to individuals receiving services from the St. Herman’s Homeless Shelter. The resulting exhibit of 41 photographs has been on display at Cleveland’s Ingenuity Fest 2016, University Hospitals of Cleveland and, starting in late October, at Gallery West at Tri-C’s western campus. If you have an idea for a photography project, perhaps this presentation will inspire you!
