New Competition Year Starts June 12th!!

The New CPS Competition Year starts Friday June 12th at 7:30 with a "B" competition. Our ‘B’ Competition allows our less experienced members and photography school students to gain the benefits of competition while participating on a level playing field with their peers. Since it was a close competition last year and has been very popular since we launched this new Competition, we're offering it again this year!

CPS Mentoring Program Being Launched!!

On Friday June 26th at 7:30, CPS will launch it's first Mentoring Program designed for any members, including brand new members, who would like to work closely with a seasoned CPS photographer so they can learn more about their own equipment, get a better handle on photo techniques and to get better acquainted with CPS. Newer members have been asking for a program like this so there will be 17 CPS Photographers on hand on June 26th that have volunteered to be Mentors. If you have any interest at all in this program, plan to be there at 7:30 to learn more about our CPS Mentoring Program. See you then!!
