Changes to CPS Competitions for 2015-16

We listened to your concerns and suggestions about CPS competitions and have made several changes for the upcoming year! More projection nights, fewer print nights and some exciting changes in categories are all in store and we hope that YOU will plan to enter often. For a summary of all the changes, click this link.

What a Summer Ahead!!

Wow!! If anybody tries to tell you that CPS doesn't offer a diverse array of photography opportunities to its members, simply refer them to our web calendar!
We have scheduled several field trips - really neat places to shoot - many with exclusive access - during the summer months! Full details for each trip are being provided in separate emails and also on the web calendar.
More information can be found in the calendar pages listings for full details on these exciting events

Open Critique Night Returns Friday 8/7!

Our very informal, very popular Open Critique Night returns Friday 8/7 at 7:30pm!! Tonight's theme will be vacation/travel photos. If you want to bring another image to discuss, that will be perfectly fine.
All images will be in a Projection format. Each member can bring up to two images.
No Scoring!! NO Judges!! Just Conversation about each Image!!
The first 30 images will be presented to the audience, but after that, we will see how much time we have left. It will be very informal because everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to join in on the discussion giving their impressions and advice about each image.
This is just another way CPS offers its members the opportunity to continue to learn about how they can become better photographers.
This event is free and open to all!!

In order to provide the opportunity to view the work of CPS members, an addition has been made to the Gallery pages of this website. A new category for slideshows representing the work on display in CPS Exhibitions has been created. This page will also showcase winning images from Interclub Competitions and may also from time-to-time display images from CPS field trips and other events.
