The Carolinas' Nature Photographers Association is committed to serving the needs of nature photographers in the Carolinas and throughout the United States. The CNPA has been in existence since 1992 when a small group of photographers recognized the potential benefits of forming a group dedicated to nature photography. From that meager beginning CNPA has grown to become one of the largest "photo clubs" of its kind in the country. Currently, with 1157 members organized into 12 regional groups, the CNPA offers many opportunities for its members to join together each month.
CNPA has an ongoing effort to preserve the environment of the Carolinas through our photography. We sponsor and are involved in many projects that promote protection and appreciation of the environment. We provide a platform for our members to learn and share their skills through networking, workshops, field outings and meetings. Building relationships with people who share the same passion for nature and wildlife photography is an important part of what we do.
If your photographic goals and ideals are in tune with CNPA, we invite you to join us in the many activities aimed at providing our membership new adventures in nature photography, while promoting the environment in the world around us. Membership is open to anyone interested in the photography of nature. We invite all nature photography enthusiasts, professional or amateur, to join a great group of people that share the passion.
