General Meetings

Held 5 Times Per Year

Our General Meetings are the ideal place to meet with fellow photographers to talk shop, share ideas, and enjoy an evening with friends. Meetings may include an educational speaker or a casual, no-host dinner at a local restaurant in the Inland Empire.

Hands-On Workshops

Held 6 Times Per Year

Our workshops are interactive, hands-on group events where we get to photograph and interact with each other and our subject. All workshops will have an educational element with a focus on inspiration and creativity.

Image Competitions

Held 5 Times Per Year

Our Image Competitions are the perfect place to hone and test your skills. We offer two divisons for image entries:

1. General Division: Designed for those entering competition for feedback on how to improve their images. This division is great for experienced photographers as well as those new to image competition.

2. Master Division: Designed for those who have already earned their PPA Masters and are looking for a more blunt, international competition-level critique.


Held 1-3 Times Per Year

Our Excursions are epic, multi-day events curated to inspire and boost your photography skills.

Supportive & Digital Events

Announced Throughout the Year

Who doesn’t love more events? Our Supportive and Digital events are just that — More events to fill the gaps between our in-person workshops, image competitions, and excursions. These events will be very casual and hosted via Zoom. The intent is to create a space for more discussion and an opportunity to interact with your fellow IEPPV members before or after an event. For example, we will be hosting pre and post-Image Competition digital events to help you prepare your images and to help digest feedback from the judges.
