Diversity and Inclusion

Community Building




About Us | Founded in 2004, The Center for Fine Art Photography is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that is a preeminent supporter of creative photography. Our aim is to promote a broader understanding of photography’s visual, emotional and social impact in society. Since it’s inception, The Center has produced high-level photographic exhibitions, publications, and educational programs.


Beginning with our earliest exhibitions, The Center has worked with both the local community and the international community. We provide opportunities for artists to exhibit their work and for the community to experience topical, challenging, and beautiful imagery from around the corner and around the globe. The Center has a reputation for quality and integrity and has been expanding our community through our website, social media, and brick and mortar gallery exhibitions.

A testimonial from one of our artists who was chosen in the jury process, Bear Kirkpatrick.

“The Center for Fine Art Photography have done something wonderful for me–they have become a conduit through which my work has been exposed to a whole new level of international awareness, and through which I have come to meet members of my own tribe.  Their juried competitions have availed the chance to show my work to internationally renowned jurors, and through their exhibitions I have been able to meet those jurors and the other participating artists.  This has not only increased my visibility as an artist, and boosted my confidence, but more importantly it has connected me directly to the international and contemporary community of photographic artists and people who love the photographic arts.  I feel as though they were the first to take me in out of the cold, give me a blanket, a bowl of stew, a place to rest for a moment.  I will be eternally thankful for their support and good cheer.” – Bear Kirkpatrick
