Renewing members

Annually Renewing Members:

If you are on a year-to-year annual membership and received an email about needing to renew, this page is for you. (Sustaining members do not need to renew manually, and can ignore this page.)

To renew, click here.

Thank you for your continuing support of The Center for Photographic Art !

Help! I tried, but it’s not working!

  • If you cannot log in, it may be that the login name (which can be your email address on file with us) is not recognized. If necessary, please email us at: and we’ll look it up for you.
  • It could be that you have the wrong password. Just click HERE to reset it, and you’ll be emailed instructions on how to reset it.
  • It could be that your membership was expired when we transitioned to this new system and your membership wasn’t included in the new, ”active member” database. If this is the case,  we suggest that you call the office, or email us to verify that rejoining is required. If it is required that you re-join, simply click on the “JOIN” menu, and select your new membership.

Thank you again for your support of photography and the Center for Photographic Art.

Our New Membership  Features !

About our new membership system:

The CPA has at long-last implemented a new and modern membership format, and will be continually adding new features exclusively for members only.

Like all the other sites you’re already familiar with, you’ll have your own account with a user name and password. Your sustaining membership is just like PBS, and will automatically renew, so you are now free from endless reminders. Please see the additional information about your new account. And, you will have full control of your account and billing. You can even (horrors!) cancel it without having to call the office.

You will have special discounts on CPA products and workshops. Now members can now purchase images from our limited special-edition Fine Print Program… and at a discount! There is nothing special you need to do to get your discount, other than log in.

Some features of the website now require membership to access. New special features for members will be added in the near future.

These new, exciting and convenient features have been a long time coming, and we are delighted to have you along on our new website!

About your sustaining membership:

Just like PBS, our new sustaining memberships will automatically renew each year. You will receive an email  before that happens,   just as a friendly reminder. These are just courtesy notifications, and do not require you to do anything. On the other hand, if you disagree with the sustaining arrangement, then simply wait for the reminder email, and log in to your account and cancel it at that time. Otherwise, simply ignore the reminder email, and your renewal will be processed automatically.
