About Houston Center for Photography

 

Houston Center for Photography is an organization dedicated to the art of photography.

 

Starting in 1981 as a small visual artists’ organization, HCP has grown to become an exemplary fine art organization. Our gallery—free to the public—features some of the finest works of contemporary photography. HCP also offers over 300 photography classes and workshops year-round. Varying in competency levels, these classes are all taught by esteemed photographers and lecturers, including some of the masters of the medium. If you have an interest in photography, then we encourage you to join our vibrant, supportive and ever-growing community by becoming a member.
