Welcome to CPS!

The Cleveland Photographic Society isn’t your typical camera club. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Broadview Heights, Ohio which offers a variety of activities for members and visitors alike — from guest speakers to special interest groups, competitions to classes.

SIG Meetings Now Online

Starting with the September meeting, all SIG meetings with Dave Busch will now be available online in the Member Portal of the CPS website. Just sign in with your credentials and go to the Member Portal (under Membership) to view any of Dave’s presentations.

Critique Night September 29

A great time to have your images evaluated by our panel of CPS members without judging or stress. On Open Critique nights you can submit up to 3 images in your style. They can be old or new images, no restrictions. These are to be emailed to info@clevelandphoto.org. The images do not have to be resized and can be sent one image to an email if they are large sized. On the Critique Night, when your image is on the screen, we are able to make any changes that are suggested in real time while your image is being displayed so that you can see what the suggestions look like.

It’s a fun night without pressure or stress! This is not a competition.

September 1 B&W and Pictorial Competition Winners Now Available

The Competition Gallery has now been updated with the results of the September 1 Black & White and Pictorial Competition night. It is located in the Galleries section. The total accumulated points for the competitions can be found under the competition area in the Programs section of the website.

Check Out Our Field Trip Gallery

Our field trip gallery is up and running – check it out. For any or all of the upcoming field trips, submit up to 5 of your photos to be displayed in the Field Trip Gallery on the Gallery page. Title your photos with your name and a number (Joe Smith – 1) since this will be the caption under the picture on the gallery page. Email the photos to info@clevelandphoto.org any time after the field trip. Everyone enjoys looking at and learning from the images. Images do not have to be resized but should be jpegs.
