The Trinity Cathedral Field has now sold out. There is currently a waiting list you can sign up for.

Luvin Lavender Farms Update

One of our members was out at Luvin Lavendar Farms and said some of the fields are totally intact and in beautiful bloom. The weather damage apparently wasn't that bad so if you were planning on going July 9 there will be lavender to photograph.

Virtual Summer Fundamentals Course Now Offered

Want to start learning about your camera and how to take good photos over the summer without having to devote time to class? We are now offering the Fundamentals of Good Photography course in virtual format. The course will consist of all of the lectures plus a syllabus that can downloaded and followed. Students will get the link for all of the sessions so you can watch them all at your convenience at any time or in any order or all at once. The one thing you won’t be able to experience is the hands-on portions, however, with enrollment you are a student for life. This means you can come to any or all of the fall or any future Fundamentals and participate in the hands-on portions at that time at no charge.

The 12 session course is $175 and this includes:

  • Virtual access to all 12 sessions of the Fundamental of Good Photography
  • Links to a complete downloadable syllabus of each session
  • A four month free membership in CPS which allows you on members only field trips, access to all members only speaker presentations and much more

    This summer virtual Fundamentals session will be available now until August 31, 2022. To sign up for the summer virtual session click here and follow the instructions to register at the bottom of the page.

    Updated Masking Guidelines

    Please note the following changes to the CPS masking guidelines:
  • Whenever Cuyahoga County is designated 'red' the CDC recommends all people wear a mask indoors in public areas
  • We strongly encourage all non-vaccinated members and students to attend meetings and classes virtually for the time being.

  • Welcome to CPS!

    The Cleveland Photographic Society is not your typical 'camera club'. Operating from our own full-time, ADA-friendly clubroom in Broadview Heights, Ohio, we are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, offering a variety of activities for members and visitors alike - including our long-running School of Photography, with classes held throughout the year. Feel free to look around our website and learn a little more about us and how to find us on the All About CPS page. Visitors are always welcome to our Friday evening meetings and many other events - we hope YOU'LL plan to visit sometime soon! If you have a question or a comment, please Drop us a line
