Print and digital image competitions are held at least twice a year. The majority of our members are amateurs at all skill levels of photography however some members belong to the Professional Photographers of America, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, and other organizations.Whether you are just starting out with your first camera or are a seasoned professional, SCVPA has much to offer.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:45pm until 9:00pm (or so.)

Message from the President
I'm sorry I'm a little late with this email but I hope everyone is enjoying the Labor Day Holiday weekend! Boy is it ever a hot one!!!!
We are just a couple days away from our monthly meeting, Tuesday September 8, 2020 at 6:45 pm via Zoom (link to follow), this month we are going to discuss the importance of printing your photographs. Making photo books, and the reasons for doing so. Ted Dayton just published a book (made by Blurb), titled "Nothing is Black & White To Me", last year I had work published in a book titled "The Collective" by TheP52Collective.com, and the year prior I had work published in "PPA Loan Collection".
I hope you will join us as this will be very interesting, there is nothing like a printed photograph! It is becoming almost a lost art! The reasons to print are many, but I feel the most important reason is because a print (even in book form) will last for generations. A digital image is only as good as the device it is stored on. Should that device fail, crash or gets corrupted your image is gone (sometimes for ever), if you had made a print the image would live on.
Print your work!
