Los Angeles Center of Photography
The Los Angeles Center of Photography Boys and Girls Club Photo Program, designed by Julia Dean, is currently partnered with ten Boys and Girls Clubs in Los Angeles County. The program is set up to provide a great time while learning the skills of Street Photography: photographing candids, perceiving decisive moments, how to approach a subject for a portrait, seeing the light. Hear from our featured middle-school students who have learned the skills of Street Photography as a way to know their world, and the world around them, better.
The Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) was established in October, 2013. The organization obtained 501(c)3 tax-exempt status in August, 2014. Before LACP, the entity was called “The Julia Dean Photo Workshops” (JDPW), which was created and founded in 1999 by Julia Dean, LACP’s executive director.
The mission of the Los Angeles Center of Photography is to build a community of dedicated photographers and to strengthen the importance of photography as an art form. This is achieved by providing education, scholarships, grants, exhibits, public programs and events, focused programming for youth and low-income families, and community outreach.
