Columbus Bus Trip Has Been Canceled

Thanks to those who registered to join us for our scheduled bus trip to the Franklin Park Conservatory and Ohio Statehouse on 8/18. We regret to inform that the trip has been cancelled due to lack of interest. Refunds have been issued.

Nature Competition Rescheduled for 8/3!!

The Nature and Pictorial competition canceled due to a power outage at the club on 7/13 has been rescheduled and will be held immediately following the Photojournalism night on August 3 at approximately 8:30pm. No additional entries can be submitted since judging has already taken place. We apologize for any inconvenience but hope you'll join us on August 3!

Shoot in the Style - YOUR Turn!

At the CPS meeting on July 6th, Kolman Rosenberg, in collaboration with John Earl Brown, introduced the work of 3 - 20th Century photographers: Brett Weston, Brassai and Andre Kertesz. Now we're asking YOU to review their work and create images in their style! At the meeting on August 10th, we'll ask you to bring up to six images (digital on a flash drive or print) to show off what you've done and to explain what inspired you. This is not a competition - just a chance to spread your wings and explore different types of photography. To view the presentation and gain inspiration, click here.
