Welcome to the Greater Cincinnati Photographers Meetup Group - otherwise known as GCPC
GCPC Mission Statement:
GCPC's mission is to educate, shoot, share and socialize with other photographers in the greater Cincinnati photographic community in a dedicated effort towards the overall betterment of photography. We hope to attract professionals as well as novices who are willing to share their photographic knowledge and hopefully gain some in return.
Membership to the Greater Cincinnati Photographers Meetup Group is open to all photographers. GCPC is a private group. Membership to GCPC is a privilege. Membership to GCPC is FREE!
Anyone with a sincere desire to grow and share photographically is encouraged to join GCPC - no matter their geographic location. We welcome and respect the new member no matter their skill level. No prerequisites exist for participation in our photography Meetup group other than sincerity, courtesy and mutual respect.
Because we're a private Meetup group, all of our photo galleries, all but three of our discussions boards, our complete library of informative files, all of our members names and bios, all of our polls and their results, all of our contests and all of the details of each upcoming Meetup are only visible by members. ~ Access to this information alone is reason enough to join GCPC!
With so many photography groups in the area you may be wondering, "Why should I join GCPC? What's special or different about GCPC?" We believe what sets us apart is:

Our GCPC Mission Statement is crystal clear - "to educate, shoot, share and socialize with other photographers in the greater Cincinnati photographic community." Our mission statement is not just words to us - it is the very heart and soul of our group and what we strive for in everything we do.
Our GCPC Leadership Team is made up of six individuals who eat, sleep and drink photography. Collectively we take, edit and produce several thousand photographs each and every month. Photography is not only our passion and dreams, it's our life. You only have to talk with any one of our volunteer leadership team members to feel our enthusiasm for anything/everything related to the art, science, hobby and business of photography. Our enthusiasm is contagious! ~ To learn more about GCPC's volunteer leadership team, please click > Message Board (above ↑) > Meet the GCPC Organizers
Our GCPC Meetups are FREE and quite simply the very best in town, be it an educational event, a hands-on photo shoot or a social event. We strive to make our Meetups informative as well as fun! And they are. We work hard to ensure that all who attend are warmly welcomed and made to feel a part of the group from the very first visit.~ Please scroll down this page to view upcoming Meetups ↓
Our 1100+ GCPC Members range in age from 15 to 85! We have not counted, but we are about 50/50 female/male. We range from highly experienced professional photographers who earn their living with their cameras, to novices who literally bought their first camera yesterday. In fact we have members that joined GCPC before they bought their first camera so they could get 'inside' information as to what would be the best camera for them.
GCPC is devoted to acts of sharing. The sharing of our time, our talent, our knowledge and our friendship. GCPC covers all types of photography from travel to macro, landscape to sports, nature, glamor, portraits, weddings and more. We believe it is the diversity of our 1100+ members that allows us to reach our goal of having informative fun in everything we do!
Interested in joining GCPC in the never-ending, fascinating, exploration of photography and friendship? We'd love to have you join us right now!
Joining GCPC is simple, easy and FREE. All we ask is:
► That you sincerely answer a few easy questions about you and your interest in photography.
► That you write a short introduction about yourself.
► That if you're a couple/family, you each join individually.
► That you post a recent photo of you in your bio - simply so we know who you are when you attend a Meetup.
► That you use your real name in your bio - or at least your first name and last initial. ~ If you use, say, "camera guy/girl" and have a picture of your dog or something else in your bio, we won't have a clue who you are when you attend a Meetup.
