You’ve weeped. You’ve sobbed. You’ve pounded on the picnic tables at Telegraph Beer Garden and demanded: when will we have a REAL home for the photo community in the East Bay?

Imagine a photography center where we can be surrounded by creative tools and ideas and images and friends! Where we can find darkrooms, a digital lab, workshops, friendly mentors and a world-class gallery. Where kids, students, newcomers as well as experienced photo nuts will all have a place to create and learn, to inspire and be inspired.

The new Photo Center is absolutely critical to EBPCO’s mission of community support and inclusiveness. It’s the place for youth arts camps, after school photo programs, and community exhibitions. Click here to learn more about the EBPCO Photo Center.
