Due to the current health hazards posed by COVID-19, CMPG is temporarily changing our meetings to online events, as noted below.
We have also compiled a list of online photography training that different organizations have made available during this public health emergency, free or at reduced cost.
If you have any additions for the list, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. See you online!

Who We Are
We are people who love photography. We are avid amateurs, beginners, old hands, semi-pros, experts, dabblers, connoisseurs, novices, fans, professionals, and life-long learners. We use DSLR’s, mirrorless cameras, smart phones, film, all sorts of gear, and all types of processing software that you’ve ever heard of and some you probably haven’t.

What We Do
Note that at this time General Meetings and User Group Meetings are being held via Zoom, and Public Service Photography events are on hold due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However we are delighted to report we have restarted group outings! (But no carpooling yet.) Check the Events page for the outings coming up.
General Meetings are the 1st Wednesday of each month at (unaffiliated) Chapelgate Christian Academy, Marriottsville, MD. (2nd floor). These meetings include general business and usually feature a presentation by a professional or expert speaker on various topics related to photography. Go to Map
User Group Meetings are on the 3rd Thursday of each month, January-October, at Robinson Nature Center, Columbia, MD. These meetings are more technical and are usually led by one or more of our regular members. Go to Map
Photography Outings are scheduled most months of the year except December. We carpool to a location or event we can shoot together, or sometimes we schedule a special group trip or tour.
Public Service Photography is one of our goals. There are several opportunities throughout the year to photograph in aid of nonprofit organizations and events, including the Robinson Nature Center and Rebuilding Together Howard County.
