The Hudson Valley Photography Network was formed in 2012 by area photography groups to enable them to share speakers and bring in well known presenters for programs that individual clubs might not be able to otherwise.
Although we do not have individual members, we do maintain a contact list for sending out updates on the HVPN's activities. See the contact page to be added to the email list.
If your club or meet up group would like to be part of the HVPN please go to the contact page and send it in with a note in the comment space.
