The Chicago Organization of Photographers is a collection of photographers looking to grow and get the most out of our photography experience.
We assembled out of the desire to grow and maintain a community of diverse and active photographers. We view photography as a shared experience that is enhanced by the participation of each of our members.
We initially started out as group of students, lab instructors, and volunteers; with all of us sharing a common desire to learn and evolve our photography.
We meet once a month to discuss various photography topics. We also critique our works and embark on photography challenges. Other events that we sponsor include meetup events, gallery shows, member submission contests, and social outings.
Our members include: film and digital photographers, studio and street photographers; art and commercial photographers. Our medium is the canvas, the web, or any other place where we can display our works. Our common goal is to strive to capture our best image possible.
It's easy and free to sign up. We'll review your registration and if your application is approved, you're ready to join PhotoCOOP for only $5 a month. Your membership dues (60.00/year) can be paid via PayPal by sending a payment to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
