Community Garden Shoot
If you would like to be a part of the City's Community Garden shoot, there are work days on Saturday, May 18, and Wednesday, May 23, when the garden will be open to the public. The gardens are located in Central Park at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91350. The City has invited us to display finished images at the mall in either the Community Wall or Small Space, Big Stories Gallery, and the exhibit could be installed in September or October of 2013. More information, including additional shooting days, will be posted here and on Facebook.

Thanks to our great judges: Steve Roosa, William Hartshorn and Tom Paiva, and also to Al Ewing at the County, and especially, all our great volunteers who made this year's Print Competition such a great event.

Check Out Our New Blog Pages
We've dumped the old forums and events page and replaced them with SCVPA Blog Pages. Keep up with club activities, outside-the-club activities, and whatever is going on in the world of photography by clicking here. You can use the new blog pages to keep your fellow SCVPA members up with what you are shooting and share photo-related information with all of us.
Log into this website to get the most out of it. Several features are hidden from non-members, so log in for the best experience.
APPLE STORE DISCOUNT
Great news for SCVPA members: We now have an organizational account at the Apple Store. To get discounts on your purchases, find an Apple Business Associate at the store, and tell them you are a member of the "SCV Photographers Association" (the spelling is important, that is how we are entered in their system).
The more we buy, the bigger the discount. The discount is good only on purchases made in the physical store; online purchases do not apply. However, ANY Apple store nationwide can offer you the discount. You can even order custom systems and they will ship them to you from the factory.
WE NEED YOUR IMAGES!
Our reserves for website images is running extremely low!
Show your work by having it displayed on our website.
In order to give everyone a fair chance, submit only one banner at a time. Once your shot has been used, you may submit another. If you have never submitted a photo before, you get higher priority over people who have previously submitted, so send in your shot now.
Please note that images submitted by non-SCVPA members will not be accepted.
Banner must be exactly 800 pixels wide and up to 400 pixels high.
Send your submissions to the webmaster. Submissions can be any subject, subject to approval. Please name images with your name, and an identifying name for the image. Example: JohnDoe_FallColors.jpg.
Do not submit images with just the camera's file number!
Photos will be displayed with full photographer's credit and may link to your website, pages on Flickr, or other photo sites, if you include the info with the submission. If you have submitted before, include the link anyway; I don't have time to look up that information for past submissions.
