What we’re about

The GNPA Gwinnett Chapter is moving to a new location. Beginning June 2021 our new home will be The Hudgens, Center for Art and Learning in Duluth. The Gwinnett Chapter is one of the older GNPA chapters established December 2, 2011.

GNPA is an organization dedicated to helping nature photographers of all skill levels improve their photography, learn and grow, meet other outdoor photographers, participate in great trips and events, help others understand the value of the natural world and give focus to a special area of interest in photography.

Watch for upcoming events and we invite you to visit one of our monthly meetings. We usually meet at 7:00pm, although members begin arriving at 6:30pm to visit and find a good seat. Regular meetings are the 4th Wednesday of each month except Nov & Dec, too many other demands on families for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We don’t even try to compete, so we combine those months and have a Christmas Party on the 1st Wednesday of December.

It is our goal to make the Gwinnett Chapter and GNPA as a whole the best nature photography club in the Southeast, and we want you to help guide and mold it into exactly the kind of club you want.

It is simple to join GNPA. Simply go to WWW.GNPA.ORG, select “Join the GNPA” button and follow the instructions.

Join us as a MEMBER of GNPA for nature photography field trips, our annual EXPO conference, workshops, competitions, etc.

If you are not sure, go ahead and register on our Meetup Page. However, some activities such as Field Trips and Competitions are NOT open to non-GNPA Members. PLEASE understand and keep in mind, registering on our Meetup Page does NOT make you an actual GNPA member. You can continue to attend our monthly meetings as a Meetup Visitor and when you are ready….join GNPA at WWW.GNPA.ORG.

We sincerely hope to see you at our next monthly meeting.
