Photojournalism Returns This Friday!!

A few years back, CPS instituted a series of regular Photojournalism Nights. These evenings are designed to celebrate the actual photograph: pictures that tell stories without the aid of accompanying words or Photoshop enhancements. Please bring up to 3 of your digital or print Photojournalistic pictures to share - and join us at 7:30pm! This event is free and open to all.

Special Guest Presentation Friday 10/7!

On Friday, October 7th, very special guests Jim and Magrit Baurecht Nilsen, traveling in from the west coast, will stop by CPS to give a special presentation called "Photographic Highlights of Europe."

The presentation will start at 7:30 in our club room and is free and open to all!!
