Rob Erick Celebration of Life Now Online

For those of you who were unable to attend the Celebration of Life for Rob Erick on September 25, 2022 we filmed it and are putting it on the CPS website. The presentation consists of two parts, the first is the actual ceremony and the second is the slideshow with audio made by Chuck Fitzgerald. The narrated slideshow was not optimally seen in our original video so we are providing it separately. Eventually these links will be permanently placed on our new CPS website.

Nature and Pictorial Images Now Available

The entries for the September 23, 2022 Nature and Pictorial Competition are now available. Unfortunately, the title and author of the image are not viewable for this competition due to a website problem. Note that these are all the entries and not just the winners. With the new CPS website, coming soon, we hope to be able to get these images up faster and in a more easily viewable display. To view the Nature and Pictorial entries click here.

First SIG Meeting with Dave Busch - October 6

Thursday, October will mark the first SIG Meeting back after almost two years. The topic will be 'Autofocus'. These Special Interest Group meetings are hosted by Dave Busch and are the first Thursday of each month. A topic is discussed and then the group breaks off into individual camera specific groups to discuss issues related to their cameras. These have been extremely popular in the past and we look forward to restarting them. See our calendar for further details.

Call for Exhibit Entries - Westlake Porter Library

We are now into our second exhibit of the season. The theme of the exhibit is "OUTDOORS" and any image taken outdoors is eligible. This includes landscapes, nature photography, cityscapes, street photography and anyone enjoying the outdoors. The exhibit will run December 31 - January 28. Entries start September 4. Complete information and an upload link can be found on the CPS website Competitions page.

New Nametags to be Offered by Request

We are about to have a new batch of CPS nametags made. Since a majority of members have never used their old nametags, the new ones will be by request only. There will be no cost to the member. The new nametags will have the date the member joined on them in place of 5 and 10 year nametags. Anyone who wants a new or replacement nametag can sign up at the clubhouse at any CPS event there.

Current Masking Guidelines

Please note the following changes to the CPS masking guidelines:
  • Whenever Cuyahoga County is designated 'red' the CDC recommends all people wear a mask indoors in public areas
  • We strongly encourage all non-vaccinated members and students to attend meetings and classes virtually for the time being.

  • Welcome to CPS!

    The Cleveland Photographic Society is not your typical 'camera club'. Operating from our own full-time, ADA-friendly clubroom in Broadview Heights, Ohio, we are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, offering a variety of activities for members and visitors alike - including our long-running School of Photography, with classes held throughout the year. Feel free to look around our website and learn a little more about us and how to find us on the All About CPS page. Visitors are always welcome to our Friday evening meetings and many other events - we hope YOU'LL plan to visit sometime soon! If you have a question or a comment, please Drop us a line
