Who We Are

The Santa Clarita Valley Photographers Association is a group of dedicated photographers both amateur and professional that meets monthly to learn about photography and share images. Our members are from Santa Clarita and adjoining communities. Besides our monthly meetings the group takes field trips such as the Death Valley excursion, the Cambria excursion and participates in expositions at the Valencia Town Center and City Hall. Print and digital image competitions are held at least twice a year. The majority of our members are amateurs at all skill levels of photography however some members belong to the Professional Photographers of America, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, and other organizations. Whether you are just starting out with your first camera or are a seasoned professional, SCVPA has much to offer.

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:45pm until 9:00pm (or so.)

We meet at
The Saugus Train Station at Heritage Junction in Hart Park.
24101 Newhall Ave
Newhall, CA 91321

Guests are welcome to attend a meeting and check us out.

2015 Spring Print Competition

Spring 2015 Print Competition

President's Message


May 2015


Another Spring Print Competition is in the books. Congratulations to all winners! You guys did an excellent job, your images were truly awesome. We had 35 merit awards given out by our three judges, who were equally impressed. Thank you to Sharon Lobel, Marsha Gold and Robin Swanson, without you our competition wouldn’t have been as successful as it was. I also want to thank everyone who helped put on the competition. Your held made it possible to pull it off. Next up is the Folio Competition at our August meeting. Next month Ted Dayton will give a short presentation on what the folio competition is all about.


 2015 Print Competition Results


We are in the process in making changes to our web page: we are going to get more information on upcoming meetings, club events, day trip, etc. we could use your help in keeping the page updated. If you have any suggestions for day trips or events to photograph, please pass them along.


I want to thank you for putting your trust in my ability to serve as your president for another year. I hope this next year is as successful as last year. The main thing to remember that this is your club. We are only able to succeed if you participate in club activities. If there is something you think we should be doing differently please let me know.


We just returned from the Bristlecone Pine Field Trip, it was very cold on White Mountain with lots of snow in the higher elevations, but it was beautiful. We’ll show photos of the trip at next month’s meeting. We are working on our next trip which will be near Yosemite in mid August, details will be available soon. We are also putting together several local photo shoots. One idea is to meet for breakfast, go to a predetermined location to photograph and then meet for dinner and saw what everyone came up with and view the photos on a big screen.


Enjoy the rest of the month, we will see you at the June meeting.

Keep Shooting !
