Digital Photography Club of Annapolis

About the Club

The Digital Photography Club of Annapolis (DPCA) is a diverse group of photographers who are united by their love and fascination with photography. From beginners, hobbyists, serious amateurs, and serious professionals our members come from “all levels” of photographic interest. Organized in 2005, their mission has been to educate their members and the public in photography as both a documentary and an artistic medium. With about 125 members, the club meets at Pip Moyer Recreation Center every two weeks from September to June to share ideas, show our photos, listen to established photographers give talks, and improve our skills. Meetings feature well-known local speakers as well as photographers from around the Nation. Technical talks on techniques and photographic challenges are also featured on occasion. Showcases of member’s photos plus field trips and shooting challenges are a frequent part of the meeting’s activities. Each year DPCA presents several exhibitions of members’ photographs at various venues around the Annapolis area. The shows are open to all members to enter.

DPCA has exhibited its photographs in the past at Annapolis City Hall, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Ginger Cove Retirement Community, Wimsey Cove Art and Framing, Quiet Waters Park, Hospice of the Chesapeake, and Woods Presbyterian Church in Severna Park.

Exhibition Statement

The artistic and documentary medium of photography can assume many shapes and sizes. To see the world through a camera and understand the world around us is to see the world through many pairs of eyes………… all of them different. Colors, shapes, and textures are all interpreted differently. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and photography allows us to view and experience our environment and reflect on what is important and dear to all of us individually. From the small to the large, the tiny to the infinite, all can be captured by photography for all of us to reflect on and enjoy. Photography can stir up interest in all of us arouse our passions and help us discern what is of interest to each one of us so we can lead fuller lives.
One picture is worth a thousand words…………………………………..

Their work is on display at 49 West located at 49 West St, Annapolis, MD 21401. Open daily.
