AI Photography Lecture and Demonstration June 23

Join us Friday, June 23 for a special LIVE lecture on ‘AI Photography and What It Means for CPS’. John Paganini and Richard Ader will demonstrate some of the current AI image generator software currently available and will discuss some of the issues and controversies of AI images and how they fit into camera clubs. This night will be a chance for members to give their opinions and input as to future incorporation of AI images into the club.

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
