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.

Critique Night is Back Again December 22!

December 22 will be another Critique Night. This has been a very popular night with a chance to have your images critiqued and commented on by a panel of CPS members. No judging allowed, this will be helpful critique and we will do any suggested edits or changes on the screen live in real time. Email up to 3 (three) images in any format to info@clevelandphoto.org and if the images don’t all fit in one email, send them in separate emails. They do not have to be downsized. Make sure they are at least 1 MB so they will display adequately on the screen. This has been a fun night and we encourage everyone to send a few images.
