Our Motto: Be Good, Be Nice, Be There

Our Mission: Our mission is to advance photography in all of its branches, both as an art and as a profession.

Membership: Open to any photographer. Members are considered to be in good standing if their dues payments are current and they act in compliance with the PIGOENC Code of Ethics(*)

A non-member can attend one meeting to see if you like us then pay first years dues of $20. After that dues are $40 per year.

Monthly meetings move to various locations, dates and times to fit the subject and presenter of the meeting. While we continue to deal with Covid-19 the majority of our meetings are being held virtually.

Benefits: Member galleries on our website, fellowship with other professional photographers who will encourage you on your photographic journey and be there if you need them, meetings that focus on education, an annual print competition to help you improve your vision and skills as a professional photographer, and an annual "members only" all day class. That's a lot for $40 a year. Join us today!
