Established in 1984 by a group of photography enthusiasts in the Twin Cities’ Minnesota Valley area, our club has grown to comprise approximately 70 members from diverse backgrounds.

United by a shared passion for photography, we come together to share experiences, enhance our photographic skills, and broaden our artistic horizons. We strive to foster a sense of community, learn in a supportive environment, and cultivate an appreciation for the science, technique, and artistry of photography.

Through monthly gatherings, we offer educational programs and engage in friendly salon competitions to showcase our images.

In addition, MVPC plans activities that give members the opportunity to have fun and hone their photographic technique. Every year, we celebrate the achievements of our talented members who have excelled in their craft.
