Become A Member

Through education, events, exhibitions and outreach, DCP is becoming a major center for photography in our region, building a community that brings together both creators and appreciators of the photographic arts.

DCP was founded on the belief that people with an interest in photography need a place to call home. Online communities are broad but can lack the depth and personal interaction that brings life to any creative art. Becoming a member of DCP supports our programs, connects you to the local photographic community and offers you benefits like access to exclusive members only events, special discounts and the opportunity to exhibit your work. Membership also supports the DCP gallery, the only photography-only community exhibition space in the region.

Members who join at the Gold level or above in 2019 will receive special Founding Member status on the DCP website as long as they renew annually.
