The Carolinas' Nature Photographers Association and the Asheville Region Chapter is committed to serving the needs of nature photographers in the Carolinas and throughout the United States. 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. The CNPA-Asheville MeetUp is a great way to become familiar with the organization, its members and activities. 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.
MeetUp members may attend two CNPA-Asheville monthly meetings before joining the organization. It's a great way to see if the group is for you. If so, it's easy to sign up at www.cnpa.org. Membership dues are paid on an annual basis, $45 individuals, $60 family, $40 seniors, and $20 students.
