What People Are Saying About the CPC Photo Community

"This is an excellent program and I have not only enjoyed it but I have learned a great deal. Lori is a very talented photographer and an equally talented teacher. She is knowledgeable, patient with students at all level and an effective communicator."

"This program helps me stay tuned into my photography. I like the feedback and camaraderie of other members, I'm inspired by it all!"

"Class is great! Focus for the month provides opportunity to shoot in a meaningful way and to stretch beyond what is normally done. Guest speakers providing insight is a value add - each one could be a stand alone class. Community is great - really nice people. Photowalks are a fun way to meet and share ideas."
