For over 21 years LACP has continued to build a community of dedicated photographers while nurturing the importance of photography as an art form by providing classes, workshops, exhibitions, portfolio reviews, mentorships, lectures and events for photographers of all ages, interests and skill levels. Until the pandemic hit, LACP also offered weekly after-school classes focused on underserved youth through the LA county Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Los Angeles.
The time has never been more critical to help keep photography alive and well in Los Angeles!
