Since its humble beginnings in 1863, Berkeley's Tennyson Street has continued to grow and to evolve - somehow mastering the perfect balance of casual cool through its shopping, services, attractions, and amenities for Denver visitors and residents alike. Originally annexed as the Town of North Denver, the Berkeley neighborhood has set the stage for some of Denver's most well known names. Historic giants like Elitch's (Zoological) Gardens, whose original theatre is still located at 38th and Tennyson, helped to create the vibrant cultural landscape unique to the neighborhood and its history. Mary Elitch, the owner of Elitch's Gardens and namesake theatre, had a particular interest in developing the arts and cultural scene in the northwest Denver neighborhood. The popularity of her theatre (the first to screen movies in Denver), zoological and botanical gardens resulted in the rise of the Tennyson street car named the "Berkeley Motor", a bustling track of transportation that serviced and helped grow the population of homeowners and visitors in the neighborhood. Come and make new history with us.

The Colorado Photography Learning Group (CPLG) provides an open, friendly learning environment for photographers, from beginners to experts, through classes, workshops, lectures and location shoots.

CPLG was started by Colorado Springs photographer, Mike Pach, in August of 2010 and has grown to include chapters in Colorado Springs, Denver and Pueblo. The group currently has 2,500 members and is well on its way to becoming the premier Colorado location for photography-related learning due to the quality and integrity of its organizers, instructors and members.

CPLG is the only group in the area that has worked with some of the top photographers in the industry through Canon’s Explorers of Light program, including George Lepp, Hanson Fong, Rick Sammon and Jennifer Wu. We are committed to helping those in the community improve their skills and increase their appreciation of this art form while having fun and making friends along the way.

CPLG consists of and is lead by members of all experience levels, from working professionals to beginners, and includes a tremendous amount of talented individuals who are willing to share their knowledge with others. We encourage anyone with an interest in photography to join and will welcome you regardless of your skill level.

Membership is FREE, and members are offered discounts on various products that our sponsors offer. We occasionally have FREE giveaways at our events. Some of the classes hosted are fee-based, but we offer plenty of free workshops and photo shoots to our members and their guests.
